After a couple days at Spanish Cay, we cruised down to Powell Cay for a bit of anchoring out and lobster hunting. Ron is most adept at that, and we were hungry for a bit of lobster. However, the winds were howling enough that we wanted a more secure anchorage, so headed further south to Green Turtle Cay, which was fabulous! We took a slip at the Green Turtle Club on the northern end of the Cay, and explored that part of the island on foot. There is a tiny community of about 450 on the island with their main town, New Plymouth, full of very quaint out-islands houses and shops dating back to the 1800s. Very pretty and definitely old Bahamian, but on the southern part of the island, so we cruised into town by dinghy and by rental golf cart, which is the fun way to get around. We walked through town, hit the local museums and had as much conch salad as we could find!
