Fish on, FISH ON!!!

We said goodbye to Black Point Thursday morning and fished our way about twelve miles to Cambridge Cay where we spent two days beaching, Diving, and just having fun in a remote area. The fishing has been the best we have had. Caught dolphin on the way to Cambridge Cay and today on the way to Warderick Wells I had two on at once. That is the first time that has happened, and what a thrill. I am sitting here on the porch of the Exumas Land and Sea Park office catching up on e-mail and blogs, but its time to go out and play. We will have Internet for a few days and will try to keep the pictures coming. Cassie and Godiva are waiting to go to the beach so I gotta go.

Hello from Black Point

We are here at Great Guana Cay, Black Point, Exumas. I am sitting here at Loraine's blogging after another beautiful day and waiting for one of Lorain's famous Bahamian dinners. Tomorrow we head to Cambridge Cay which is in the Exumas Land and Sea park, the largest land and sea park in the world. The weather is going to be great for fishing so we are going to go on the outside and fish on the way to the park. The dolphin are schooling and everyone is catching fish. Wish us luck! We will be out of touch for a few days so keep checking back for our next Internet connection.

Well, it's almost 9 PM and we still haven't been able to post photos. We're leaving in the AM for Cambridge Cay. It will be a few days until we have Internet again, so we'll try to catch up then. Sorry to leave you hanging....
