Eel Hole Pass

Seen here is the channel through the shallows leading to the Eel Hole, a deeper area populated by quite a number of moray eels, among other fish. The eels are considered by the local islanders to be good luck. Thus, they are typically left alone by the fishermen. If caught accidentally¬† it’s tradition for the youngest crew member to wear the eel around their neck for a few moments before it is released.

Pup Town resident

Summer means lazy lounging for this four legged inhabitant of Pup Town, situated on Marlberry Cay. The stray population is kept in check by a curious regulation that requires most pet food imported into the Islands to be blended with a birth control treatment. A Breeding Licence is required to allow your pet to reproduce, and special, untreated pet food is then only available through a veterinarian.

Pretty Beach

This beach, located on Cape Talloy, is abundant in shells. In fact, there are so many one could never collect them all. The people on Starlight Cay, where Cape Talloy forms part of the Western shore, use the shells for decorating their houses. Starlight Cay was named for the schooner Starlight, which was stranded, but later recovered, near by. Some of the original crew stayed, or were left behind (stories vary ) to create the handsom inhabitants who live there today.
