From March 16 to April 21, Elizabeth Jean searched the Bahamas’ Exuma Islands for their fabled treasures. The next three posts will include clues to the treasures we found and their locations. Guess the treasure and Elizabeth Jean will buy you a round of your favorite libation. Remember that “all that is gold does not glitter.” For a bit of treasure lore see:
Albatross-eye-view of the Exumas. The photo captures the difference between the deep water of Exuma Sound east of the islands (upper right corner of picture) and the shallower banks on the islands’ west side. We made our way south from Nassau protected on the bank side, hurried along by 15-20 knots of north east winds.
This old style chart places the Exumas in context to the east and south of Andros, the Bahamas’ largest island. Florida’s south coast is visible to the chart’s far left.
Our Exumas treasure hunt extended along the Exumas to and from George Town, our most southern destination.
