Lobster and Sharks and Pigs, Oh My – Compass Cay and Staniel Cay

Catching up – from Middle of January 2016

 

The Marina at Compass Cay has a ton of fish – including Nurse Sharks that come up on the dock at low tide so you can pet them. They seemed quite cat like. Some would rub your leg and anothe one would pick its head up to let you know he’d like some more affection, please! They are the texture of very fine wet cement but their fins soft like skin.

Nice shark, good shark!

They actually rub up against you like a cat, wanting you to pet them – so cool!

In many anchorages people blow conch (pronounced conk) shells at sundown.  Our friend Katharine does a great job with hers.

in other places people drum down the sun – so I got out my drum a and joined in the joyful noise!
