Lost at Sea

We met Fletch, Barbara, Sailor, and Jib at West End, Bahamas. Fletch and Barbara are retired and living on the west coast of Florida. Sailor is a wonderful old female yellow lab and Jib is a bossy male poodle. We liked them all immediately. Together, they make up the crew of Com’on Along and they’re […]


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 […]

Sailor – 100 pounds of sweetness in the form of a yellow lab, and Jib, the DrillĀ SargentĀ – a 10 pound poodle. Great Sale […]

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 […]
