Rock Sound and Southern Eleuthera

As I mentioned in the previous blog, we didn't plan to arrive in Rock Sound as quickly as we did.  Poor holding in anchorages forced us to move on south to Rock Sound where there was a protected anchorage with good holding.  We had hoped to time our arrival with the Homecoming event that occurred...

Georgetown – New Providence

Serene: calm, peaceful, and untroubled; tranquil. Serene was just another 6-letter word, one that I had never used to describe myself, until we anchored in the Exumas. Serene was the perfect description of the anchorage at Little Farmers Cay. We were one of only 4 boats anchored there and it was gorgeous. It was a... Continue Reading →

Black Point to Georgetown

Many cruisers have sung the praises of Black Point and we now can sing a verse, too! Thank you to Fred and Carolyn on Casablanca for suggesting that we bring school supplies to the Black Point All Ages School (Grades K-9). We brought flash cards for the lower grades and novels for the upper grades.... Continue Reading →

Exuma Cays

On this island of 500 people there was only 1... Continue Reading →

Great Harbour Cay, Berry Islands

It was a long 11 hours traveling 85 mi from Bimini to Great Harbour Cay in the Berry Islands. Not surprisingly, it was rougher than forecast and Scott and I took turns feeling kind of yucky...but we didn't throw up! Hooray! It was a relief to dock at Great Harbour Cay Marina which is completely... Continue Reading →

Bimini

When we went to bed on Saturday night in Key Biscayne there were 24 boats, when we awoke at 6:30 a.m. there were only 12 and when we pulled up the anchor at 7:10 we left 4 behind...the result of a great forecast for crossing the gulf stream.  The perfect weather is when the wind...
