WE MADE IT TO THE BAHAMAS!!! Yes we've made it. We sat in Riviera Beach Municipal Marina for two weeks waiting for a weather window to cross the Gulf Stream. Don't get me wrong Riviera Beach is a fun place to get stuck but we were just anxious to get out to the Islands. We did meet some nice folks, Gary, Carol and thier son Chris were in the same predicament as us. We finally got the window and did the crossing. Came onto the Banks at Memory Rock at sunrise with a building sea behind us. As they say, in the nick of time. Sailed to Great Sale Cay and anchored for a couple of days to recoup from the crossing. Looked around for some lobsters but came up empty. Did find some Rock Snails and cooked them up that evening. Yummy! We then sailed to Green Turtle Cay and checked in. We are presently in the Green Turtle White Sound waiting for a blow to pass by and then we will continue south through the Abacos and the Exumas. Hopefully pleasant cruising from now till spring. Will post pictures soon.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful New Years.
