Photographer's Note

On some days the colour of the water around the cays would take on an emerald glow and look quite magical. Often this would be right before a squall came over the islands. On many occasions, just before the weather would whip up to a storm, the sea would go flat calm and be quite surreal.

Here you can see a fisherman cooling off in the calm, quiet sea with the cays in the background. If you look carefully you can see two boats... there is one on the horizon just above the man in the water coming back from sea to the cays situated in the right of the picture.

Bows On, Bows On, Bows On!!

That's what the fishermen shout out when they see boats coming in from a far. Often this means that food and supplies coming from the mainland will soon reach them. In this case probably just fish and lobster - the boat wasn't coming from the right direction for it to be coming from land, it was probably a fishing boat coming in before the squall..

Yet 'Bows On' they still shout!
