Flying Fish Marina, Long Island
Pretty little planter on the road into the marina
Roads to Clarence Town
Both Kirk and I thought this road was great. Loved the palm trees lining the road.
and the conch shells around the palm trees
Big story with this pic. This is one of the huge (maybe 50 - 60 feet) fishing boats in the marina. The size of these fishing reels on the rods was unreal. They are about 3 times as big as the ones we use. The first day we were there Kirk took a walk around the dock and he came back to our boat and said, "I know why we do not catch any fish. We do not have enough fishing rods out. " We laughed and then he talked about how big the reels were. So the night before we are leaving, we moved the boat to the gas dock which was very near these fishing boats. Just so happened that they had gone out fishing and caught wahoo. They gave the fish to Marvin at the marina who in turn gave us two big pieces. While Marvin was cleaning the fish, he told me it was about a 60 pound wahoo. He was tossing the not used parts into the water and there was a huge (10 ft) black tipped shark in the water with tarpon all snapping for the fish parts. Wow. I just missed him filleting the whole fish cause we were retying the boat. It was the most delicious fish I have ever had. So the morning we left I asked the guys on this boat if I could take their picture and asked them if they ever take charters out. They said no they just fish for fun. Oh man is that some expensive fun. They told me they were going to Plana Cays, did i know where that is, that day which is 90 miles south east. I said yes I had passed Plana Cays two sails ago. It was a very good stay in Clarence Town, Long Island.
Back in George Town, Great Exuma, Bahamas
The first morning in George Town was spectacular. Calm clean water.
