23° 46.32' N 76° 6.3' W 22 Jan 2022 22:06 None None None We had plans. Yup, you make plans. But Mother Nature is the ruler of our universe. We were going to go to Rum Cay and then sail to the Crooked Arklins. But at 7 am this morning we had to adapt:)! Chris Parker(our weather guru on the single side band) was so flustered about the week ahead that he said he had nightmares. Needless to say, we took his advice and decided to go somewhere we love and feel safe! Just dropped our hook in front of the Caribbean research center at Lee Stocking. Coconuts, conch, clear water…….

23° 36.3' N 75° 20.57' W 21 Jan 2022 23:52 None None None Onto a new anchorage! We are still on Long Island(20-30 miles long. We’ve rented a car and explored In 2020). Today we sailed a lovely downwinder along the shore from Thompson Bay. We have found another ‘pinch me is this real? ‘ spot, just south of Callabash and behind Hog Cay. Incredible crisp,clear snorkeling with beautiful reefs, unbelievable gin blue water, Sandy, Sandy beaches and sandbars, and the air is filled with the song of the rare ‘whistling ducks’. This is paradise( yes again)! Thank you again Cookie Monster for guiding us to this place❤️😊😊
23° 21.6' N 75° 8.06' W 17 Jan 2022 21:32 None None None Crossed the Tropic of Cancer a few hours ago! We’ve gone to the ‘outer’ Bahamas and reached Long Island today. We had following seas and wind. We only lacked sunshine but the trip was pleasant. Two dolphin played on our bow as we entered the harbor! We are promised bocce and one of our favorite ‘watering holes’ is here, Tiny’s hurricane hole☺️, as well as Deans Blue hole, Christopher Columbus memorial , many caves and ruins to explore! Early to bed and a full day tomorrow!
23° 30.89' N 75° 44.7' W 09 Jan 2022 00:53 None None None Oops! We’ve been here 4 days! Forgot to post. Georgetown, Exuma’s has a way of swallowing you up! You put your anchor down amongst old and new acquaintances and reconnect and get to know the many who end up at this ‘’Shangri La’ for cruisers. We can get diesel and gas here. The grocery store is one of the best in the Bahamas. We can do laundry and get water. We can also go out to eat! The local hang out ‘chat an chill’ has activities, learn to cook conch, splicing, volleyball, water aerobics, yoga, games, bonfires…..Yes, you can get stuck here! However, we have two cold fronts coming through with very high winds so if you are going to get stuck-this is the place!😊
