We found the beach, but checked with a few people swimming. They pointed us to the path, no signage, which was ok by us.

The cave had a stone in the back of the cave that was used for preaching sermons. Hence the name. It was used for sermons for 100 years. We explored it was before hiking to the Blue Hole.

Now the hard part, climbing out. I am estimating that the jump/climb was about 20 feet. Both Devyn and I have rock climbed in the past, which came in handy. And we wore shoes, which was recommended. This was the first time Dave had used this camera, and he missed Devyn’s climb out. But her parents would have been proud of her.
Halfway up, I needed to make a big step and wasn’t sure my knees could handle it. Dave asked if I could do a “Nancy”. About a month ago, my friend Nancy just rolled onto a dock to get out of our dinghy. So I laughed and rolled onto the ledge just fine. (Thanks, Nancy, for introducing that technique to me.)
I would have jumped again, but I didn’t want to have to climb out again. We celebrated with a light lunch that we packed.
