After a little break, back to The Bahamas!

We left My Sharona on a dock in Georgetown, Exuma, and flew back to the West Coast. We made a stop to visit with Wayne’s 91 year old Mom, Daughter Brittany and our 2 amazing Grandkids! Then packed the car and made the 2 day drive down to our home in Baja.

We came home to take care of a little business, see our friends who we’ve been missing, play some Pickleball, and to enjoy this years Los Barriles Songwriters Music Festival. This is a cause dear to my heart. A fundraiser for The East Cape Guild, who for the last 25 years have sponsored deserving local Mexican students to get through high school and when possible, college, giving them a chance to bring their skills back to our small little town or beyond. This year I was happy to support this project and wanted to be there.

We were happy to have Chris Farren of Combustion Music , Nashville and a few of his friends donating 2 amazing nights of their music. It was a big hit, and we are excited to welcome them back next year (March 1 – 2, 2024) for a even bigger bash.

Great to be home if even for a short time.

2 months later, we are on a plane heading back to our Boat and another round of Fun in The Bahamas, working our way north and then to Florida where we will keep the boat for the rest of the summer.

Waiting again for the right weather to move north, gave me some time to work on a fun project. New shade screens for the galley.

We had a fun afternoon dinghy ride to a beautiful beach and dingy drift through mangroves and turtles with crystal clear water. Wayne led the way, you can only go at high tide.

Ok… time to move North , Heading up the islands towards Staniel. We were blessed with a beautiful day, 26 miles to a new anchorage for us. Prime Cay.

We had a beautiful drive up to Prime Cay… even got the fishing lines out. No luck for the big one, but did catch a yummy Sierra, and had fish tacos for dinner. Once again we were bothered by the weather. With a Lo passing by Florida, we got hit with some Thunderstorms and rain the first night . When fronts go by, the wind clocks around to the west, and can be bad. This anchorage is open to the west, but shallow sand bars in front of us protect us. We stayed put because this is one of the best anchorages for SW wind. So all alone that night we had a HUGE thunderstorm with buckets of rain, and lightning striking all around us. Scary for sure especially when Wayne had to go out and turn on the bilge pump and bail out the dingy at 3am! Oh joy. We are still here. Looks like that front has stalled, and will be hanging on for a few more days.

Anyway. it’s all part of the journey. The more we see, the more confident we feel. That’s all for this blog… Thanks for keeping up with us. Will be back with hopefully more than complaints about the weather. haha.
