Exumas Baby!

12/31/13

Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas   78/73 degrees  Wind NE 18 mph.  Light rain possible.

Hi All!

We made it to Bimini and caught up with friends on PRETTY PENNY who were traveling with PIRATE, VIKINGS DREAM, and NO AGENDA.

Also hanging out with buddy boat SIRIUS and new boatie CERULEAN.

Stayed in Bimini for a few days.  Ate out way too much!  The food was great and the breakfasts at Bimini Sands are always good.  The Bahama bread French toast was sooooo yummy!

We left Bimini on Sunday with SIRIUS and CERULEAN and the power boaters headed up by PRETTY PENNY and anchored on the banks. Quite lumpy.  More wind than predicted.

It was great to get into Nassau on Monday.  We usually stay a few days but we are being chased by a front and if we don’t wait to get caught for a week in Nassau we had to leave today.

We got in early afternoon yesterday and stayed at the Nassau Harbor Club.  They have lots of shops right across the street.  We got our Bahamas cell phone, groceries and my final chai tea latte at Starbucks for the season.  We all stayed in and had dinners on our respective boats.  Everyone was tired from the two day trek from Bimini.

Nassau Harbor Club is $1.75 a foot, water $6.00 a day, fixed docks, pool and close to downtown, Paradise Island and important shops…new large grocery, Starbucks, bank, Batelco, FedEx, liquor store, pharmacy and others right across the street.

We are now headed to the Exumas.  Will anchor out at Highbourne Cay tonight.  Yay!  We will finally be at our cruising grounds.  I am sure that Tom will be very happy to have small hops from now on instead of the 10-14 hour ones!

Will send pictures later.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope all is well with you and yours.

Cathie on s/v INTERLUDE.  OUT!
