We wake up a little earlier because we need to get to town to meet the boat. We ordered a new patio umbrella for the back deck from Kelly’s in Nassau. After breakfast we head out towards town shortly after 9.
We arrive at the Government dock and are told the boat is coming in late due to weather in Nassau. They tell us to be back after 130. I’m good with killing some time….I’m craving a meat lovers omelette from Augusta Bay!
We grab our usual table. Chase gets his casting net from the car and heads down to the beach. What a view. We try to make it to Augusta Bay for breakfast every trip. After breakfast Heather and Chase take in the view from the dock. They watch two baby sea turtles swim around the bay.

We drive west back towards the house and stop at AID for glasses, shower curtains and some other supplies. We also stop at Darville Lumber for a fire extinguisher, and Exuma Building Supplies to get our propane tank filled.
Chase is dying to jump into the water somewhere so we pull off the road at the east end of Tar Bay. We grab our beach chairs and the Go Pro out of the car. The colour of the water is incredible.
Tar Bay 😍😍😍
Around 1245 we make our way back to town and pick up our new umbrella at the dock. We are excited to see what it looks like. We drive straight back to the house, wanting to spend the majority of the afternoon at our beach.
We get home and set up the umbrella on the back deck. Amazing!
Heather and Chase pack up the beach bag and chairs and walk to the beach. I drive around the corner to Tracy Bowes Convenience Store and grab milk, cheese and windex, and stock up on kalik at the liquor store. I meet Heather and Chase down at the beach. They are both out in the middle of the reef snorkeling. Its perfect….. so calm!

Chase and I snorkel the reefs… we are so lucky to have two great reefs so close to the house. We see a stingray, barracuda, snapper, and several other fish. I was able to capture a great Go Pro video of the stingray.
Snorkeling the reefs
Chase fly fishes just off shore for about an hour and I grab the other fishing gear from the house. We manage to catch two Horse Eyed Jacks. We see the big barracuda swim by a few times…. probably our same friend from last trip at Christmas.

As the sun sets we all have our showers. We have dinner at the breakfast bar and watch the sailboats go by off in the distance. I make Heather a rum punch with her favorite Ricardo Coconut Rum. Heather answers a booking inquiry and Chase uploads some new video to his “Chasin Lunkers” YouTube channel.
We are hoping to stay at our beach tomorrow. If its calm we will be paddleboarding, snorkeling and fishing! 🌴☀️🌴☀️
