Warderwick Wells and Normans Cay

We are currently in Normans Cay. We left Little Farmer's Cay on Wednesday, April 18th and took a mooring ball in Warderick Wells. Warderick Wells is part of the Exuma National Park and you are not allowed to anchor. The water was beautiful and the island has lots of trails to walk. We found plantation ruins from the 1780's and a pirate's lair. The lair was where the pirates would hang out by the supply of fresh water from natural wells. There was a hiding place for their ship between Warderick Wells and Hog Cay. We also saw the endangered rodent, the Hutia, it is protected and indigenous to the island. They are nocturnal so we are lucky that we saw one at all. There were two of them and they were hanging out under some dead palm branches. They didn't seem particularly scared of us. We stayed at Warderick Wells for nights.

We left Warderick Wells on Saturday April 21st and arrived in Normans Cay. Yesterday when we arrived it was cold and overcast, we will go explore today then head out to Nassau early in the morning. We have lots of pictures to share with you when we get an internet connection.

Cheers Mike and Kim on Ka'imi
