Black Point Exuma

2017 March 4
by Lyn

We are now in Black Point in the Exumas. They are really friendly and the harbor is beautiful!

The challenge in the Exumas is finding a place to hide out from cold fronts. When the winds clock, there are very few spots that offer 360 protection. In this case, the winds are forecast to stay NE so we only had to find good protection from one direction. And Black Point offers great protection and very solid holding for the anchor. There are probably 25 boats here with the same idea. So here we all sit, while the wind blows 30 with higher gusts and supposed to be that way for 3 days! So it’s a good time to relax, read a book, and eat through some of  the snack provisions.

We walked to the blow hole. It was low tide so didn’t blow very high.
