Endangered Species

We finally left the Eleuthera chain of islands and headed to the Exumas. We have been looking forward to this, lots of uninhabited islands, crystal clear water, white sand beaches and even some endangered species. Yes, our first stop was Allen's Cay. This grouping of cays and rocks is generally reffered to as Allens Cay after its largest island. These islands are humans but home to the endangered Bahamas iguana.

Signs on the beaches tell the story.

A nice, well protected anchorage.

We got the anchor down and headed to the sandy beach on Leaf Cay.

Look at the welcoming committee

Look at the distinctive tracks they make on the beach.

What a handsome dude!

Wow, they are everywhere.

We even saw a turf war.

This area is a quick day trip from Nassau so ther is a lot of boat traffic. Lots of power boats and their wake. We enjoyed our time here but it is time to move on.

  2. Critters are so much fun to see. Looks like the beach is beautiful.
