A Determined Little Stick

Dinghy anchor and chain set in beautiful, ripply white sand

What are you doing, little stick?
So, we were snorkeling off of Soldier Cay in the Bahamas, on the Exuma Sound (east) side, which we can’t do often since the prevailing easterly winds usually make it choppy and uncomfortable. The topography was interesting, lumps of stone interspersed over sand. Some areas, however, were just vast areas of beautiful white sand, like you see here with our dinghy anchor. Swimming back to the dinghy, I saw this little stick in the sand. This is usually a high-energy area with lots of waves and surge, so it probably wasn’t just stuck there, even though it was in water about fifteen feet deep. Just odd…
