It was a great anchorage with room for us all (all though less room for the rest of the boats who came later).
We established an anchor watch for the expected stormy evening, 1 and 1/2 hours each boat and it worked well. Fortunately we didn't see those squalls up to 40 knots, although they did down in Fraser's Cay. We had sustained winds of 20 to 25 with no problem.

On the way up we stopped at Hawksnest Beach for lunch. Unfortunately the restaurant I thought was there wasn't evident or in the guide book, so we had lunch on Anything Goes pot luck style and then walked the beautiful beach. While there we met a second home owner and her young friend who gave us a ride around the island.

The two grocery stores were a long walk away, although we got a ride part way. They had a reasonable supply of everything but fresh vegetables. Like most of the islands, you need to get there just after the mail boat arrives with fresh produce. We were able to get a few things.

We had made reservations at the Nassau Harbor Club Marina so we didn't have to deal with the difficult anchoring situation there. Kevin however didn't have any problem at the southern most anchorage just off our docks. We've anchored there before when we couldn't get a purchase at the anchorages further downtown.
