Feb 14, 2018, – Bennett’s Harbour, Cat Island

We decided to stay in this lovely spot for another day. After many mugs of coffee and breakfast we got in the dinghy for the trip to shore and a bit exploring and lunch at Yardy’s. We met Fred from Connecticut on the beach who gave us directions to Yardy’s. He spends 8 months here. It was a short walk to Yardy’s, the conch fritters were as good as advertised and the beer was really cold !

Lunch at Yardy’s

We picked up a few essential supplies, wine and mix for Peter’s rum. On the way towards the beach we met a lovely local, 96 year old Minerva MacDonald Rolle who kept us company for part of the walk to the beach.


She told us about her 99 year old sister who lives in Nassau and was about to go on a cruise. She has a sister who was 100 and six months and her father lived to well over a 100. Good genes all around. We had a nice walk along the beach back to the dinghy, Willy swam back to the boat while Peter allowed the outgoing waves to get us back to the boat with minimal rowing. Bob, Peter and Wilma went for a ride into the creek while I stayed back to get caught up with the blog 🙁 Tomorrow we leave for Hawksnest Resort which we hope will be open.

Bob’s had no luck raising them on the radio or via email. We asked at Yardy’s if the resort was open and were told it should be. She also said of no one seems to be around to just help ourselves to a slip -exciting times, we were hoping to top up on water and fuel
