Shortly after noon, we pulled anchor and headed just 4 miles north to anchor off the beach at Bitter Guana Cay. This location is a protected iguana habitat. We will just stay here overnight before moving on to Staniel Cay tomorrow.
There is a tall (for the Bahamas) cliff here with a mixture of old coral and exposed sandstone. The wind and water have carved the soft sandstone into a dramatic scene with impressive overhangs on the 60 ft cliffs.

And, oh yes, there were iguanas. These were slightly different from the ones we saw at Allen's Cay, but just as hungry. As I stepped out of the dinghy with the anchor in hand to place it up the beach, one of the iguanas assumed that whatever a human has in its hands is food, and it walked right up to me and started chewing on the anchor!
We hiked up and down the beach, shelling for a while, then set up our compact folding chairs at the water's edge and kicked back with our toes in the sand to relax and enjoy the view.
