Countdown to Year 4 of Cruising!

Countdown to Year 4 of Cruising!

In a few more weeks, Joe, Ethan and I fly back to our sailboat, Mahi, in the Bahamas.  We are now in our 4th year of cruising.  Wow! The time has sure flown by!  Hard to believe Ethan was only 4 when we bought our […]

Georgetown

Georgetown

A motorsail from Rudder Cut Cay to Georgetown was in order, so at high slack tide, we headed out the cut and into the Exuma Sound.  We entered Elizabeth Harbour and decided to anchor off of Monument Point.  We find a nice empty anchoring spot […]

Cambridge, Black Point and Rudder Cut Cays

Cambridge, Black Point and Rudder Cut Cays

Heading across the Exuma Sound, my fishing attempts yielded a few nibbles, but sadly, no sushi for dinner. First stop is Cambridge Cay inside the Land & Sea Park.  We pick up a mooring ball and enjoy the sunset from this beautiful location. Friend boat […]

Beautiful Eleuthera

Beautiful Eleuthera

Next port of call is Spanish Wells in order to reprovision. The trip across from the Berry Islands to Northern Eleuthera was not fun for me. I somehow picked up a parasite or infection that laid me low for several weeks. I pull myself together […]

Outer Berry Islands

Outer Berry Islands

We spent time exploring Great Harbour Cay with our friend’s on SV Serenity.  Fun activities include visiting the cave, mangrove ride and lots of beachcombing. One night, Joe, Ethan and I were having dinner with our friend’s Jay and Karen Campbell boat, M/Y Largo.  We […]

Bimini to GHC

Bimini to GHC

Now that we have checked into the Bahamas at Bimini, our PredictWind weather routing software is showing us that a sizeable front is on the way.   Joe and I really do not wish to get stuck in Bimini.  We would rather wait out the bad […]

Cristol on SV Delayed Gratification

Cristol on SV Delayed Gratification

We first met Jeff and Cristol Morgan on SV Delayed Gratification when we literally bumped into them during a nasty storm in the middle of the night during our second year of cruising.  What a way to meet new friends, we laughed about later!   After […]

Cambridge and Compass Cays

Cambridge and Compass Cays

We headed north and decided to stop at one of our favorite places in the Exumas- the anchorage at Cambridge Cay.  This gave us an opportunity to revisit the Sea Aquarium one last time, then visit the Bubbly Pool on Compass Cay, and finally snorkel […]

Bitter Guana Cay

Bitter Guana Cay

Thankful to be away from Staniel Cay, Bitter Guana Cay was a breath of fresh air!  We went ashore with our friends, Lynn and Ken, aboard Tryst Two, to see the marine iguanas.  They were interesting creatures and very docile for the most part. These […]

Staniel Cay Swimming Pigs

Staniel Cay Swimming Pigs

Everyone had been talking about the swimming pigs at Staniel Cay for as long as I can remember.  For many, it was the highlight of their trip.  With excitement building, we sailed to Staniel Cay and anchored off of the famed Pigs Beach.  We jumped […]
