Boo Boo Hill

The picture to the right on this blog is of us standing on the top of Boo Boo Hill in the Exuma Land and Sea Park. It was taken a couple of years ago when we took New Horizon down there to explore and snorkel. Boo Boo Hill is the highest spot in the Land and Sea Park, and the view of the azure blue water and white sand is spectacular. At the peak of the hill, a commemorative to drowning victims of a ship wreck just off the island was started, but now it is famous for the boat signs that cruisers make out of driftwood and put up there. We found a great piece of wood and painted our boat name on it, and then placed it among the hundreds of others, in a place that it would stand out.

Two days ago we received an email from another cruising couple who we have known for several years, who told us that they had just arrived back in the Exuma Park, and had gone on a hike up to the top of the hill, and our name sign is still there! You can tell that there have not been any major storms or hurricanes in the past couple of years, since it has not blown away. It made us think about the possibility of going back to visit it, and the rest of the Exumas, again next fall.
