Cruising North Provo
Sapodilla Sunset and Little Water Cay
January 4, 2014
Our first evening with a new crew (Rose) on our second voyage amongst the Caicos Islands, we anchored Mystique at Sapodilla Bay on the southern side of Provideciales. This voyage would start out by our sailing northward through Wiley's Cut in the reef around Provo and slip in behind the reef that stretches out along the northern Grace Bay coast and continue northeastward to leading edge of North Caicos.

about a hundred yards off shore at Little Water Cay.
Our outboard had to be tilted forward with only 2 feet of water
the hundred yard flats to shore....we could have walked! it!
