29 June - 3 July 2015... Discovery Bay, Jamaica

Next stop -- Discovery Bay.  We had heard this was a pretty bay, good place to stop.  Well, not so much.  First off, with the winds we were having, there was very little protection in this bay.  So, we bounced and rolled.  Secondly, this is the port for bauxite loading.  The dust was everywhere -- coating the boat.  Who knows how much aluminum we could have smelted out of the powder insinuating itself into every nook and cranny of Anhinga or that we inhaled during our stay.  (James Bond fans may recognize the bauxite dome as it appeared in the movie, Dr. No.)  And thirdly, there is absolutely nothing worth going ashore for here -- we looked hard -- we really did.  So, should we ever cruise the north coast of Jamaica again -- we would give this place a miss.
