I am starting to feel like all my post are the same. We left Mayaguana on Thursday April 5th. We headed for another tiny little island call West Plana. We did a little stop and took off to Clarence Town, Long Island in the Bahamas. We got anchored and looked up and we both decided Yeah, we liked it here! We came into Flying Fish Marina for an adult beverage. We have been on the boat for days so getting into land was a good idea!
We meet a very friendly local named Keif. we sat and drank and hear all about the Bahama islands. We then proceeded to a lil local bar that his brother owned to play dominos ( I had to learn to play). So yes some of you might be reading this saying Really?? You went to a lil local bar with a complete stranger in the middle of a forgien country.. Yes we did!! And we had a great time! Keif offered to drive us to a grocery store in the morning. We agreed to meet around noon the next day (give us some time to recop for the night before). He showed right on time and we took off in his work van for the store. We where able to get some cheese, bread and frozen PIZZA!! (this made me happy!! only so much goat you can eat!) . Now we are back from shopping and having some drinks back at the little marina bar. Next stop is Rum Cay. We are having a blast so far.
Some things we have learned.. We can not fish. Almost 1000 miles and we have not had a bite. Cat's Eye is a fantastic boat and we trust and love her. The dogs have more nautical miles then most boaters we know. You can never buy too much red wine. Kindle is the best thing since sliced white bread. And Dave does not look that bad in a speedo! Also we miss home.. this is a tricky one..Home for us has been different places. our home is where our boat is. BUT we miss ALL the people we are not with. People in the states, people in St.Thomas and St.Croix.
Pictures soon come!! Sorry internet is too slow for them!
