Yeah, hey was checkin out my apples
So after venturing through 4 hours of 5-8ft seas down to Nassau we meet up with the lovely women, Melissa and Sigrid. We took off immediately after our lunch at the Poop Deck Restaurant and Bar. First on the list was Allen's Cay, where a horde of Iguanas greeted us gingerly on the first beach we visited, eating any apple slices we provided. Hank suggested Macduffs Restaurant for dinner after anchoring on Norman's Cay for the night. Each of us doubting that this Mac Duff's place really existed, we ventured through the lonely forest and finally found it. We briefly snorkeled an airplane wreck at Norman's Cay, and to the incredible Wardrick Wells Nature Pack of the Bahamas to explore and even feed some finches clumps of sugar. Then off to Staniel Cay to dock for the night. Off to Thunderball Cave in the morning, to snorkel with a plethora of exotic fish. Hank decided it was good for us men to duck under one side, swim around and jump off the seemingly enormous structure of rock just to impress the ladies. I went first and survived, somehow. Then, at a nearby island, swimming pigs provided an afternoon full of entertainment,

MacDuffs was well worth the wondering, and had probably the best Mahi I've ever had!
as we fed them scraps of food and hank caressed them to sleep. Next was Compass Cay, where nurse sharks were easy to swim with as they even would eat my leftover coco pebbles and milk in the shallow sandy water in the marina. We raced to Atlantis marina for a late lunch and to get the ladies to the airport, just a tad late and they missed their flights. Melissa and I enjoyed a night of lobster tail, junkanoo-like-entertainment and exploring the Atlantis Aquarium and gambling on the dollar slop machines (which, Melissa had some luck at). Needless to say, we arose extra early for their flights the next day, then Hank I headed back for Marsh Harbour in much nicer seas then before.

After the brown male pig tried his magic, Hank tried his luck, and got 20 seconds of good spooning before getting run off by big brown balls.
