Green Turtle Cay

We spent 2 nights at Munjack Cay and then moved to Green Turtle yesterday morning (5 miles). Green Turtle has two fantastic anchorages – Black Sound and White Sound. We chose White Sound, because, well you, know — Black Sound reminds me of Black Sheep and I certainly am NOT the black sheep in my […]


Cruising with Dogs

When we were in West End, we met a nice couple from Florida, Fletch and Barbara aboard “Com’on Along.” We felt a special bond with them because they were cruising with pets. Sailor – 100 pounds of sweetness in the form of a yellow lab, and Jib, the DrillĀ SargentĀ – a 10 pound poodle. Great Sale […]


19 Days to Paradise

I’m thinking about writing a book based upon what we’ve learned on this trip, entitled, “19 Days to Paradise,” in which a man and a woman discover that it’s not about the destination, rather, it’s about the journey…. Wow, what a long way to go for a 7-10 day vacation!! We’ve arrived!


Jack of all Trades – Master of None

I know there are people out there that go cruising with nothing more than a cursory understanding of how their boat works, but Lord help me, I don’t know how they can possibly get any where. We’ve been out cruising for 19 days now and I’ve had to make numerous repairs along the way: multiple […]


Great Sale Key

We made Great Sale Key yesterday at 4:30 PM. Another 42 miles over our stern. We have another hard day of beating up the Bahama bank today and then we’ll finally be in the Bite of Abaco, where we can slow down and enjoy what’s left of our vacation. Neither Michelle nor I really understood […]

West End, Grand Bahama

Today we decided to take a day off from traveling and enjoy the amenities of Old Bahama Marina. This really is a nice place and if you don’t have a boat, but are looking for a quaint, out of the way resort, I’d highly recommend Old Bay. They have a couple of restaurants and what […]


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 […]
