A Taste of Paradise - Ep 73 Sailing Luckyfish
This. Week on lucky, fish, our. Exploration. Of the exhume, is continues. As we bathe in, the reflected, glow of the super-rich. Find. Out what it feels like to, be on the menu. Check, out the sweet little settlement, of little, farmers, key, before. Saying, our farewells, to Jeannine and Adrian at Barratt, air. With, a flight back to the UK, looming, for our guests, we still had a lot of ground to cover to, reach Georgetown. It. Was another perfect, day for sailing so, we set out on the 23, mile league to, stand yorky. No. Sooner was the anchor down we, were met by this reception, committee, checking, out the new arrival. So, I dream it. God. Is really active is news you, get the feeling is actually you. Know looking for food. If. Georgetown. Is the hub for cruisers, Staniel, key, is the hub for the rich and famous where, they can forget their troubles by. Chartering. A super yacht. Should. Be your lucky fish. We. Took the dinghy ashore, in the morning to refuel, reprovision. And say, hi to the sharks. This. Is a pretty unique experience for. Sure. It. Could be easy to forget that this place is a feeding, station. And who, is boss a few. Months after our visit a Florida. Woman decided, to go swimming with them, mistaking. Her hand for food she ended, up with the shock of her life and a few thousand, more Instagram. Followers. The. Shark chooses. To remain anonymous. Stocked. Up we, lift Staniel for, a change of pace, the peaceful little, farmers, key a. Tour. Boat had just arrived and we were treated, to meeting Stu the. Giant, puffer fish and his, mates. They. Had all been raised by hand by this fellow who was making a simple living here during the tourist season. Little. Farmers, is a place you could want to stay forever, with. A population, of just 60, people we knew the names of a dozen of them within hours of arriving. It's. One of the few keys that actually, produces, fruit and veggies in the Bahamas. After. Turning, down offers as diverses, buying, property, - recovering, the treasure off, a sunken, pirate ship. Yeah. I think. I will fit into that no problem. We. Had to move on. Why. Are we not talking. From. Little farmers, we went back outside so. We could sail the direct, route south, to a sweet, little Anchorage, at least stocking Island. On, this beautiful beach, on. An. Island yeah. Quite. A few trees here we're hoping to get some fresh ones. You. Spider webs around. The, way. Yeah. Another. One. Hit. Hi. Why. Don't we bright up there here we go. It's. A good sign means. That people haven't been in here. Oh. Spiders. Webs every. Another. Sort of mat here. Interesting. Wonder what those are. The. Coconut, there another. It's. Smart. Yeah. You've. Got you spiderweb, remover. No. No I'm some. Sort of. Seed. From that palm a particular sort, of palm. Just, one over there. I'm. Gonna get round this I'm here maybe go round there through there. Yeah. This. One's right by a path so, not, the coconut, to be seen. Okay. We'll hit back out and find some more trees look, I. Can. Hear Adrienne and Jeanine they've gone down along. The beach probably chasing those three. Great. You're half green half brown that one, nice, bit of milk it's not big because it's very dry climate the, coconuts, don't seem to grow very large it's. A good-looking one though. Yeah. Here's. Some lovely coconuts, right, there now. How we gonna get them down things are going to be careful. Won't, my mate really dry maybe they're not. So. Disappointing. Yeah. Lower. Tree I think, the. Coconut trees themselves they, start bearing first from from, seed and three.
Or Four years, because. Trees are only they're higher that agent. Yeah. So it just started to put its root down that's, not such a good sign because that's eating the meat. So. It won't be quite so sweet, all. The. Sugars, get taken by the plant. The. Leaf, leaf. Just starting, is. The root going down. These. Coming up and they're coming out the eyes so, this. One the meat probably been partly consumed. Still. Get a little bit of milk in it. So. Maybe you alright shall we break it and have a look. Yeah. A little bit old but. The. Meats all right look at that beautiful Hey Wow that, part there that's. That's. Some. You. Know I don't know the kernel, part that starts to grow from the middle and the meat and. That's the bit that starts, like the yolk. Coconut. Even. Try. That. And would have expected, by showing. Conscious. And. Sadly. We'd be saying our good-byes today. The. Wind was a bit on the nose for the league down to Georgetown so. We decided to pull into Great Exuma northernmost. Settlement, Barrett. Air and try, to arrange, a taxi. And, with that it was back to the boat and a chance to catch up with a local fisherman anchored. Nearby. Yeah. Yeah. We. Made arrangements, to meet the captain later in the evening, and get, some conch. Back. On lucky fish we had some spare time to, our sky, drian and Janene about their Tiki, 38, build back, in England I mean you've had two weeks on the boat now Adrian. You mentioned that you were prone to seasickness at one one, point yeah and not on the cats but in the, earlier sailing, experience. On. This. We. Bounced around a bit but there's something about it isn't there it's quite so this maybe, it's a sense of security that you get on the boats and that's something that really hit me with a while yes you, feel very safe and I think if you take that anxiety away, the. Seasickness, goes, away as well as I too was, prone to seasickness on, life degree on monohulls, yes. It's. Interesting to hear you just, totally fine on the boat and. As I said I've. Been on I've been in the Thames Estuary. I. Wasn't. Sick so I've got a pretty strong Constitution, but, I was. Grabbing. On for, dear life. Whereas. I don't, feel that at all with them and that's one of the reasons why when Adrian said I want, to build a count that actually, he said Aunt Kate doesn't, heal, over, you, know and you think oh yeah, no. That's that's not scary, where, is actually being like that and I'm, you know I'm you know thinking. Applies. On your mind I am NOT, myself oh. Excuse. Me and wear a lifejacket but. Yeah I didn't feel like that at all. Ah no it's. Like. A it's, a big boat but. It feels like you're sending, a dinghy yeah. Fear. Of the boat and and. What it's doing, I don't, think from. These. Production. Yeah. I. Did not feel, fright. Completely. Underlined nice bullets I know exactly, what you mean and it's not until you sail on one that you actually feel there you, have to do it yourself go through that process we. Recorded, this fascinating, interview for, our patrons and we'll publish, it on our patreon, page shortly. It. Had been a memorable time, with Adrian and Janine and we wish you both a speedy completion. Of the good ship Kyra. Later. That evening zyre, and I were treated, to a lesson on how to prepare cracked, conch, and we. Discovered, why it is the delicacy, everyone, raves about but. That will, have to wait for another video.
