Hawksbill Cay North

This was our last sunset in shrouds Cay we had been there all day and no surge when we went to bed we had a surge not to bad but not a lot of sleep.

You notice the sunset the big boat got in my way. So I did much better in the morning with the sunrise.

Arrived at Hawksbill Cay early and took this picture of Pier Pressure  under the rainbow and look how calm it is.

John explored these caves once we got the dingy down they were right beside our boat.

Now we are off to explore.

Now this is quite the trek through bushes and loose rocks but well worth it to see where this village was, they collected water in well on the mountain and used conch shell ground down to make mortar for the walls.  We found four of the houses in the bushes.

Remember this was in 1785 and most are still standing.

There’s John peeking through a window in one of the houses. Now they are not big but the manpower to drag all those conch shells up the mountain to build and building up the mountain took  a lot of patience as you will see in a moment where we are on the mountain.

If you look really close you can see our dingy on the beach.

This is what we walked through to get to the buildings.  This was just awesome.

Now I think someone was watching over this cave they call it smuugglers cove.

This one was sitting perched on top of the tree above the cave.  BeautifulDSC09103.JPG

The bird is still perched up on top still guarding the entrance.  You can actually see an opening above ground going into the cave as well.

Now John just had to explore another cave.

And me I just had to keep the dingy from floating away. So I gave him the camera for a change.

Still trying to get that little speck of green light that appears for less than a second when the sun goes down.  But I am going to keep trying.
