Waiting on the Wind at Allens Cay
“Allen’s Cay” is a group of 3 islands that are just North of Highborne Cay in the Exumas. Honestly, there’s not much here aside from the local group of iguanas that roam the island. Well, that’s not true – there’s also a beach shack and the ruins of an old Chic-Fil-A.
Well also check out that old Chic-Fil-A that I told you about. It’s amazing how quickly such a nice establishment can go to waste once abandoned. What a shame… these islands could use a spicy chicken sammich every once in a while.
There’s also a cool mini beach hut on the East side of the island. No idea how it got there, who built it, of what purpose it serves, but it’s so cool! You wouldn’t want to weather a hurricane there, or even sleep over night because of the mosquitos – but it’s PERFECT for a quick photo!
Finally, the reason we’re hanging out at Allen’s Cay in the first place is because we are waiting for the wind to change directions so that we can cross the Exuma Sound and make it over to Eleuthera. Well, until then, it’ll just be us, iguanas, ruins, Chic-Fil-A, and a beach hut.
