How To Ruin A Beautiful Thing
Many of the Exuma islands are privately owned, and they are marked as such on the charts. So, we don’t go ashore. On a few we saw small signs that said “Private.” But only on Rudder Cut Cay did we see such ugly signs as this – large, black and orange, and everywhere – warning against trespassers. What otherwise is a beautiful beach has been marred not only by the sign, but by the attitude. But there’s plenty to see in the water, like this beautiful (albeit fuzzy, being underwater) orange and red starfish, and they can’t control where you go on the water.
