Following a disastrous attempt at motoring to Lucaya (Freeport) yesterday, we are docked at Bimini Bluewater Marina and hope to cross the Gulf Stream tomorrow for Florida. Yesterday morning when we left Nassau, it was breezy but the seas were tolerable. We decided to head for Lucaya and spend an extra day or two in the Bahamas before returning home. However, halfway to the Berry Islands which is on the route out of Nassau, the wind and seas picked up to an uncomfortable level and we ducked back into our anchorage of a few nights ago behind Hoffman’s Cay. There we had a rough night but safe anchorage. By this morning, the wind had calmed and we decided to head directly for Bimini instead of the extra days in Freeport. We arrived in Bimini around 1630 and hopefully will be able to get a good nights sleep tonight. Last night was spent rolling around on the floor trying to fight the roll of the boat. There are some new photos, but not good enough of a connection to upload them tonight… later.
