Eagle Ray at Hawk's Nest
Current Location: Hawk's Nest Marina, Cat Island, Bahamas
Miles Traveled: 12
Weather: Cloudy, breezy, afternoon thunderstorms, high-70s
Highlights: Raised anchor around 7:30AM with plans to swing by New Bight to visit the old monastary. Weather looked pretty threatening, so changed plans and motored straight over to Hawk's Nest Marina for shelter. Arrived early, and got the boat washed by a good thunderstorm (first close lightening we've had here in the Bahamas). Cleared up mid-afternoon, so we took the dinghy up Hawk's Nest Creek. Saw lots of turtles, sharks, a few fish, and one really cool experience with a huge (8-foot length) eagle ray. Swam right along side of us for 3-4 minutes in crystal clear water. Got some video that hopefully will be good enough to post on FB. Back to the boat for dinner (grilled fish over beans and rice), and watched disks 3 and 4 of Horatio Hornblower.
