The Queen of Whale Cay

From Chub Cay we sailed 6 nm in high winds to anchor between Whale Cay and Bird Cay. Both Islands were previously owned by Joe Carstairs, "a cigar-smoking, cross-dressing, motorboat-racing lesbian, who had tumultuous affairs with leading actresses",  (check out that link for an interesting read).

Dan knows how to strike a pose. 
Whale Cay Lighthouse is no longer offering navigational aid.

Abandoned pool. Imagine how much it cost just to ship in water to fill this thing. 


Joe Carstairs Museum, now empty.
