Shroud Cay text

We spent one day at Shroud Cay, where we met friends of Ketch’n Dreams, Cheryl and Carl on Mystique. Shroud has a network of mangrove trails which you can explore by dinghy. Unfortunately, we visited at low tide and had to walk our way through the sandy muck for a good portion. We saw many fish, two sharks (it was really fun during the walking part to think of these guys that we had seen) and some type of ray during this adventure. We visited Camp Driftwood, which at one time was a hermit’s home constructed of flotsam and jetsam found along the beaches. It apparently was demolished during a hurricane as we found little evidence such as was described in the guidebooks.
The next morning we hauled anchor early as the anchorage was very rolly in 20 knots of breeze.
