Red Shanks

We had a hard time finding enough "swing room" until we got to Sand Dollar Beach.  I like at least a 5:1 scope or so in 20' of water. That combined with our 8' bow means we need a fair bit of space feel  comfortable in a blow.  With the winds forecasted to clock around we decide to pick up and go into Red Shanks behind Crab Cay where we know we'll have good shelter.  It's also an easy and protected dinghy ride into town from there. We spend the day doing "boat stuff", like dinghy maintenance, wash off some salt and go for a swim.  We then relaxed on the back deck with a book and wine or beer.  It was a good day.
