West End Bahamas

We left Bimini at sunrise this morning with hopes of a beautiful broad reach sail north to West End, but the wind Gods had a different plan for Double Wide! We ended up motor sailing in to a northeast wind all day, but made it to West End at 4:30. The wind is predicted to remain out of the northeast tomorrow, so we decided to stay at the Old Bahama Marina for a couple of nights since the anchorages here don’t really provide much protection from north winds.

This is a beautiful little resort on the west end of Grand Bahama, complete with pastel colored cabanas, a beautiful private beach/reef, and a pool with a swim up bar. We may never leave!

Tug Boat was so excited to finally be in a place where he could run off leash.

      Dad, we’re ready to slow down! I figure we have one more long day of sailing and then we get in to the Abacos islands. It’s hard work, sailing on a schedule!! Yes, we’re having fun, but we’d like to find a nice anchorage and rest for a few days…

      Michelle really wants to visit the place where you were before, so I’m glad to know the correct name. We’ll see if we can get there on this trip.

    Who knew he’d be a water dog?

      He’s not really comfortable with water yet. We’re just playing near the water with a few, occasional jumps IN the water. Usually he runs to the edge and stops cold. We’ll get him there before we return.
