"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Mar. 26 - Man-O-War Cay

Man-O-War Mooring Field

I love the sea's sounds and the way it reflects the sky. The colors that shimmer across its surface are unbelievable. This, combined with the color of the water over white sand, surprises me every time." —John Dyer

We went back to the grocery store this morning and picked up a few more things and then wandered through what they call the marina district. It had a few nice gift shops and three or four upscale places to eat, but to us it didn't seem to offer much else...not a place we'd want to spend much time. So we finished our to do list by we filling our water tanks at one of the marinas and we headed back to Man-O-War.

We had plenty of sunshine today but the wind has really picked up. We had a choppy ride across the Sea of Abaco, we picked up a mooring and spent the rest of the afternoon just hanging around the boat listening to the wind howl. We'll probably spend the next few days here waiting for the weather system to move through and then hopefully spend the first of the week snorkeling a little south of here. We will then start moving north, visiting places we missed on the way south.
