Sunday Serenity: A Boat Nap

We recently were going through some photos of past travels and ran across a pic we had taken of a young man thoroughly enjoying an afternoon nap on a boat in Anegada.

That got us to thinking about one of our favorite things to do during a sailing vacation.
Take a nap.

Nap2-(600)-O
The gentle rock of the sea, the warm sun on your skin and a fresh sea breeze all combine to make a perfect recipe for some zzzz’s, and we try to enjoy that as often as possible while on a boat.

Nap1-(600)-O
Nap3-(600)-O
Can’t wait to go sailing again and take a nap…

Nap4-(600)-O
What about you? Would you enjoy a little boat nap?

Exploring Gillam Bay, Green Turtle Cay, Abaco

We had just a short time on Green Turtle Cay during our Abaco sail trip and were determined to make the most of it. After thoroughly enjoying our Goombay Smashes and conversation with Smitty at Miss Emily’s Blue Bee Bar, Smitty mentioned that we really should go and visit the “beach”. That way, he said, pointing somewhere to the east.

Thanking Smitty and buying a jug of Goombay Smash to go, we hopped in our golf carts and headed in the suggested direction.

Coming to a fork in the road, a sign indicated beach in either direction, so we decided to veer left. Just a few yards away the brush opened up to reveal Gillam Bay.

copyright Rum Therapy
It was obviously low tide and gasp! – the bay was filled with sandbars dotting the shallow, beautiful, clear water.

copyright Rum Therapy
It was getting late in the afternoon and we knew our sunlight hours were limited, so we immediately went wading in the shallow water on our way out to explore some of the sandbars.

copyright Rum Therapy
We began to see signs of sea life on the sandbars; much of it the usual suspects, such as mini starfish,

copyright Rum Therapy
and live sand dollars making their way through the soft sand.

But then there was this…

copyright Rum Therapy
The odd looking creature writhed its way out of the hole and laid down in the sand.

copyright Rum Therapy
We later found out that the strange creature was most likely a sea cucumber. Sea cucumbers are echinoderms—like starfish and sea urchins, and have very interesting defense systems, such as excreting a sticky stream of goo to ensnare their enemies or expelling internal organs and then regenerating new ones!

Interesting. Anyway, we explored the sandbars until dusk, then made our way back to the boat. Smitty was so right. We certainly enjoyed beautiful Gillam Bay, it’s sandbars and it’s interesting creatures.

Coconut Rum Punch

We’re big fans of rum punch – all kinds, made with fruit juices or fruit and different rums. Such an easy drink to change up and play with different combinations of flavors. We ran across this Coconut Rum Punch recipe by Kimberly of A Night Owl on Pinterest, and were initially attracted by the delicious looking picture, but after putting it together, the taste is equally delicious! We made a smaller version of the recipe than originally posted (we didn’t want to waste any!), but you can easily double it for adult get-togethers!

Coconut Rum Punch - copyright Rum Therapy
Coconut Rum Punch
recipe by A Night Owl
(makes 4 – 8oz. glasses. Double or triple the recipe for larger batches)

1/2 c. coconut rum
1 c. orange juice
1 c. pineapple juice
1 c. ginger ale
1/2 c. grenadine (or cherry syrup)
maraschino cherries for garnish

Mix together the coconut rum, orange juice, pineapple juice and ginger ale. Pour over ice in tall glasses. Slowly add equal parts grenadine to each glass. The grenadine will sink to the bottom creating a beautiful looking drink. Garnish with a skewer of maraschinos.

5 Days on Staniel Cay, Part 3 – Off the Cay

In 5 Days on Staniel Cay, Part 1, we talked about the beaches on Staniel Cay and in Part 2, we highlighted some of the other attractions on island that we were lucky enough  to experience. In this last part, we’re going to feature the area surrounding Staniel Cay – which are just a short boat ride from Staniel Cay and definitely worth exploring!

Exumas-4(a)-(600)-O

Exuma, a long chain of stunningly beautiful islands, or cays – 365 of them, that start about 35 miles south of Nassau, Bahamas. The Exuma Cays are the northernmost part of this chain and much of it is easily accessible from Staniel Cay.

Map of Exuma Cays
If you have boating experience, you can rent a boat for the day or the week from Coral at Staniel Rentals, or 1/2 day and daily rentals from Nicole at 3N’s Vacation Services. If you’re not comfortable navigating your own boat, Nicole can also arrange a guided tour of the surrounding cays for you.

During our all too short stay, we first took a guided tour of the surrounding area, which included snorkeling at Thunderball Grotto,

And a fun afternoon playing on the sandbar near Little Pipe Cay.

We enjoyed the day so much that several days later, we decided to rent a boat of our own to explore more of the incredible area. We swam with the pigs again, then headed north for more time on Compass Cay, where we spent time chatting with Tucker, the proprietor of Compass Cay Marina,

Then spending the last several hours of our day on Sandy Cay, exploring the tiny uninhabited island and the long arc of white sand sandbar that appears during low tide.

Dark ‘N Stormy Ice Cream

If you’re on a diet, you might as well just close this page right now. We could practically feel our clothes getting tighter just reading the list of ingredients, but we forged ahead. You know this job requires some sacrifices in the name of “rum research”. 

Anyway, we saw this recipe posted by Gosling’s Rum the other day, and being big fans on their Dark ‘N Stormy Drink, we knew we had to give it a whirl.

copyright Rum Therapy
There are a few steps to it, and we modified the steps just slightly to make it a bit easier (and to use a few less post and pans) and the results were still, well, rumlicious. And, as if the ice cream isn’t rich enough by itself, we decided to make a rum sauce (find our rum sauce recipe after the ice cream recipe) and drizzle it over the ice cream before serving…seriously yum.

Oh, and if you don’t want to go through all the steps to make the ice cream from scratch, Goslings recommends “buying some of the best vanilla ice cream you can find to soften. Add chopped crystalized ginger and Gosling’s Black Seal Rum and blend it all in. Re-freeze and serve when ready.” Hmmm. Maybe we’ll try it that way too!

copyright Rum Therapy
Dark ‘N Stormy Ice Cream
(makes one quart)

1 cup sugar
2 cups milk
2 cups heavy cream
8 large egg yolks
½ cup Gosling’s Black Seal® Rum
½ cup crystalized ginger, chopped fine

In a saucepan combine the sugar, the milk, and the cream and scald the mixture over moderate heat, stirring. In a large bowl beat the egg yolks until they are light and thick and pour in the milk mixture through a fine sieve in a stream, stirring. Cook the mixture moderate heat, stirring, until it coats the spoon. Transfer the custard to a metal bowl set in a bowl of ice and stir until it is cool. In a small stainless steel or enameled saucepan reduce the Black Seal Rum over moderately high heat by half, taking care it does not ignite. Allow it to cool. Stir the Black Seal Rum and the crystalized ginger into the custard and chill the mixture, covered, for 2 hours. Pour into an ice cream maker to finish chilling and mixing.
(recipe by Goslings Rum – with slight variations)

Rum Sauce
(makes about 1/4 cup)

1/2 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. butter
1/8 tsp. vanilla
3 tbsps. dark rum (we used Goslings)

Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add brown sugar and stir until dissolved. Turn off the heat, but leave the saucepan on the stove. Slowly and carefully pour in the rum, stir until it thickens slightly. Using a small spoon, drizzle over a bowl of ice cream.

Perfect Vacation Memory – Virgin Gorda

What’s a perfect vacation memory? You know the one your mind wanders to when your day gets a little too stressful? Well, of course it’s different for everyone, but ours usually has something to do with a beautiful beach…and rum…

A few years ago, while staying on-island in this beautiful villa on Virgin Gorda in the BVI, we packed our beach bags and set off for the day to beautiful Spring Bay, a next door neighbor to The Baths. We spent the day lounging in the crystal clear water, exploring the massive boulders and simply soaking in the sun.

Spring-Bay-(600)-O
And, as if that weren’t perfect enough, after getting our beach fill for the day, we made our way to CocoMaya, where we ordered a Zacapa 23 on ice and a Pinot Grigio, sat with our toes in the sand around a fire pit at the waters edge,

Coco-Maya-8-O
and watched a gorgeous sunset over Tortola.

Sunset-over-Tortola-(600)-O
Great memory of a great day on a beautiful island.

Shell-O Shots

Are they Jell-O? Are they shots? They’re Shell-O Shots! A beachy version of the adult party treat! We found a shell shaped ice cube mold Shell Shaped Ice Cube Mold, purchased two of them, and put together several different flavors for a colorful party tray. The recipes can also be used in regular 2 oz. Plastic Jello Shot Cups with Lids. Find the recipes for 3 different flavors below!

Shell-O-Shots-(600)-O
Strawberry Banana Shello-Shots
(Makes at least 22 individual shells)

1 3oz. box Strawberry Banana Jell-O
1 pouch gelatin
1 c. boiling water
1 c. banana rum (we used Malibu)

Pour the gelatin into a medium bowl with 1 c. boiling water. Stir until dissolved. Add the Strawberry Banana Jell-O and stir until dissolved. Pour in 1 c. of banana rum. Spray the shell molds lightly with a cooking spray. Using a small measuring cup, fill each shell mold with the mixture. Put the mold in the refrigerator until the shells become firm. The firmer they are, the easier they will come out of the mold. Turn the mold over and gently squeeze each shell out onto a plate.


Lemon Cheesecake Jello Shots

(Makes at least 22 individual shells)

1 3oz. box Lemon Jell-O
1 pouch gelatin
1 c. boiling water
1 c. vanilla rum (we used Cruzan)

5 Days on Staniel Cay, Part 2 – The Island

In 5 Days on Staniel Cay, Part 1 – we covered the beaches of Staniel Cay, and although we spent a lot of time on those beaches, there are other things to enjoy on Staniel Cay and here are some of them. You can locate these attractions on the map below.

copyright Rum Therapy 
Part-2---1-(600)-O
Sign on the back of Club Thunderball

On a cliff overlooking Thunderball Grotto, this closed down bar called Club Thunderball must have been a happening place in its day! Regardless, we enjoyed exploring the exterior and imagining sipping a cold rum punch with fellow island lovers while looking out at the gorgeous blue water.

copyright Rum Therapy
Part-2---4-(600)-O
Moving down toward the “town” of Staniel Cay, we spent several fun evenings at the Staniel Cay Yacht Club – the place to be at night on Staniel Cay.

SCYC14-(600)-O
Cold drinks and lots of great conversation with other happy sailors, vacationers and islanders alike make for a great place to hang out.

Part-2-20-(600)-O
Hungry? We had  several delicious lunches at Staniel Cay and one absolutely delicious lobster dinner. Reservations are required for dinner and the dinner bell rings promptly at 6:30 and 8 – don’t be late. Our dinner was pricey, but worth it.

We also enjoyed hanging out on the dock at the marina during the day.

Part-2-16-(600)-O
You never know what you’ll see swimming around in the incredibly clear water.

To the south of the SCYC there are two other dining options.

Part-2-12-(600)-O
Taste & Sea Café, casual food with a nice view of the water,

Part-2-13-(600)-O
And Big Dog’s.

Just down from Big Dog’s is Emil’s Bakery.

Part-2---9-(600)-O
The selection varies with the time of day you stop by, but this is the place to get fresh bread and baked goods while on-island.

There are three grocery stores on Staniel Cay and two are in this area.

Part-2---6-(600)-O
Burke’s Convenience Store

Part-2---5-(600)-O
And Pink Pearl. Don’t expect the type of grocery store you may find at home, but do expect fantastic and friendly service. We asked the owner of Pink Pearl, Eleanor, if she had any plastic containers that might be suitable for microwaving and she said she didn’t have any in stock, but proceeded to go next door to her house and bring us two of her own bowls to use for the week!

Part-2---10-(600)-O
Continuing down the road you will find the oldest house on Staniel Cay/Museum/Library. Sadly, it never appeared open when we passed it as it would have been fun to check out.

There is one church on Staniel Cay and it stands prominently on a “busy” corner.

Part-2-11-(600)-O
Mount Olivet Baptist Church sits right on the edge of the water and must offer quite the view for parishioners during service.

Part-2---7-(600)-O
Isles General it the 3rd of the 3 grocery stores and is located farther south on the island.

Need a golf cart or boat, or want to plan a wedding on Staniel Cay?

Nicole-(600)-)
Nicole can help you arrange a golf cart or boat rental and many other services you may need and also runs Embrace Resort.

Heading up the northeast part of the island again, we found a trail along the cliffs heading north.

Part-2-15-(600)-O
This was a beautiful hike with great views, just pick your footwear carefully. We did not and the volcanic rock can get pretty painful in sandals.

Part-2-21-(600)-O
Do as little or as much as you want on your Staniel Cay vacation, but as the sign on the beach next to SCYC says,

While you are here: Stop awhile Sit awhile Observe awhile Listen awhile Relax awhile Meditate awhile Live awhile longer…

Coming up in the Part 3 – what to see in the area around Staniel Cay!
