We’re in Troy, New York, a stop we didn’t make on the way south. As we were passing through town, we noticed tents were being set up along the waterfront. We pulled along side the sea wall, and Phill hollered … Continue reading →
We decided to take the best of the worst weather windows we had in front of us and pushed all the way to NY. We arrived at the West 79th Street Boat Basin mid afternoon and got a mooring ball ($30/night – much better then our last visit).
We’ll be visiting Wade ‘n Kim for a few days then head for home via the Hudson & Champlain Canal…
Catch up some more later…we’re walking dead after the overnighter.
We were back in Annapolis yesterday and managed to get together with our friends, Wendy & Burry on s/v Seahawk. We met them in Kingston before we left in September. They’ve been cruising the Eastern Seaboard and the Bahamas on … Continue reading →
We may be back in the US, but we still have a few Caribbean stories for ya… So we left Allen/Leaf Cays (the place with all the iguanas) on May 18th and sailed north out of the Exuma Islands bound … Continue reading →
We’re in Norfolk, Virginia. We arrived around 8 pm yesterday, and decided to stay a couple of nights in the municipal marina (Waterside Marina, $1.50/ft/night, water included which is a nice change from 50 cents a gallon in the Bahamas). … Continue reading →
We made it to Beaufort, North Carolina with half a day to spare (it took us three and a half days, total).
We opted for a marina for shelter from what’s supposed to be a very nasty storm tonight (some sources are forecasting 65 knot winds!).
We’ve been cleared in by US Customs & Immigration, cleaned up the boat and cleaned up ourselves. We both have that tired-bug-eyed-sleep-deprived feeling, so we’re going to take a nap, then go find something very American to eat for supper.
Today’s the day…we’re leaving this afternoon for a four-or-so day passage to Beaufort, North Carolina (or thereabouts). We’ll be leaving this afternoon from Marsh Harbour, Abaco, Bahama. But while I have your attention (and the only wifi connection we’ll see … Continue reading →
We were hoping to have left The Bahamas for the US by now, but the weather isn’t co-operating.
Our plan is to leave from our current location in in The Abacos and head straight for North Carolina (probably the Cape Fear/Beaufort area), which will be at least a four day trip for us, but the forecast for the last week or so has been for not enough wind, and then too much.
In the meantime, we’re enjoying our long goodbye to The Bahamas toodling around the beautiful Sea of Abaco.
A window may open up by Sunday the 9th…we’ll keep you posted.
After we left Norman’s on May 16th, we stopped into the fuel dock at Highborne Cay to get some water and a few groceries at the overpriced resort store. Many things are relatively expensive in the Bahamas, but a small … Continue reading →
