The weather in January has been lovely and although blustery days here and there, the sun still shines. We must be Bahamian now because the water is too cool for us to swim but we know if we were visitors from the snowy north, nothing would keep us out of the lovely blue water.
Sundays always seem to be beautiful, with blue skies and water like glass so we take advantage and head out in the boat to explore. This past Sunday, we headed SW and went up and around Big Whale Cay. This took us through the shallow teal water dotted with large starfish every ten feet and over a ship-wrecked barge teaming with colorful fish. On the ocean side of Big Whale, we slowed to enjoy the site of the historical buildings on the cay. Sitting large and alone on one of the highest bluffs is the over ninety-year old church. Sadly, a tree grows out of the dilapidated roof top but the structure continues to stand strong as it has through countless hurricanes.
