20 Things I Learned on Guana Cay….Redux.

I started this blog 5 years ago after an ill-fated trip to Guana Cay with our good friends John and Teresa. Two black eyes, a busted boat propeller, a slide down a boat ramp, sunburned lips, power outages……..Everything that could go wrong on that trip did and it inspired me to start writing about my travels.

Well, we’ve made a lot of trips to Guana Cay since then, but it took 5 long years for our friends John and Teresa to decide to return. We made the trip in August, exactly 5 years after the first trip.

A lot can change in 5 years.

So, let’s try this again. Here are 20 NEW things I learned on Guana Cay.

#1. There is no sunrise more beautiful than the first morning you wake up on Guana Cay.

#2. There’s no such thing as “too much mac n’ cheese.”

#3. The Nippers Sunday Buffet is so much more enjoyable when it’s not in your lap.

#4. There is no greater joy on earth than the first time you make it on the hook and ring game at Grabbers.

Unless it’s the first time you make it on the “around the pole hook and ring game” at Lubber’s Landing.
