Now that we have concluded our second season in the Bahamas, I thought I would share some of my favorite shots taken with either my iPhone or my Canon camera.   This is Part 2 in a series, Part 1 is here.   Hope you […]

Our 2016/2017 Cruising Year in Pictures- Part 1

Our 2016/2017 Cruising Year in Pictures- Part 1

Season two photos from our travels on board the sailboat, MAHI.  These are some of the things you often see when you take off for tropical beaches and travel from island to island. I do love to capture images as we travel using my Canon […]

Recovering Our Confidence

Recovering Our Confidence

Once the storm ordeal recounted HERE was passed,  both Joe and I felt pretty low.  On one hand, we were thankful that our sailboat survived, and very thankful to S/V Narval for their rescue, but we were tired, traumatized and in need of a safe […]

Storm Event in Eleuthera- or How We Almost Lost Our Boat

Storm Event in Eleuthera- or How We Almost Lost Our Boat

Earlier this season, we encountered an unexpected microburst storm in Eleuthera, Bahamas, which produced 78 knots of wind while at anchor.   It was very scary to go through, I am not afraid to admit.  In fact, it has taken me several months to write […]

Rock Sound

Rock Sound

Rock Sound is a lovely Bahamian Settlement.  It has good cruising restaurants, a delightful blue hole, local artisan store, and an excellent provisioning grocery store next to the hardware store. The map I borrowed from a website and it gives you a good overview of […]

Alabaster Bay

Alabaster Bay

The winds shifted southwesterly,  causing us to move Mahi south along the island of Eleuthra to seek a better anchorage for the new conditions.  We found Alabaster Bay (formerly Receiver Bay when the United States had a naval presence here) to be another tranquil place […]

Wifi Coverage & Rainbow Cay

Wifi Coverage & Rainbow Cay

The only problem (well, if you can call it that) with extended travel to remote, tropical places, you find it difficult to write and upload blog posts.  I posted the last few with my cell phone, but even finding adequate cell coverage in the Bahamas […]

Eleuthera- Meek Patch to Hatchet Bay

Eleuthera- Meek Patch to Hatchet Bay

Since leaving Spanish Wells, we have spent the last week or two at anchor in Eleuthera.  It is stunning wherever we go. Internet happens to be nonexistent, so will share some iPhone photos with you and hope they are uploaded through cell phone data. First […]

Pink Sand Beach

Pink Sand Beach

Earlier this week, we boarded a ferry to travel along the challenging Devil’s Backbone sea route to visit Harbour Island in Northern Eleuthra.  The goal?  To see the beautiful pink sand beaches along the Atlantic shore. The sands were indeed a faint pink color. I […]

Spanish Wells

Spanish Wells

Our first stop in Eleuthra is Spanish Wells, a beautiful settlement filled with descendants of Eleutheran Adventurers and English loyalists during the American Revolutionary War.  This is a clean, friendly and picturesque island, filled with colorful, freshly painted houses and beautiful gardens.  Crime is non-existent.
