And to answer a common question… NO.. Allie has NOT seen the movie JAW’s
Too fun here… we have been hanging out with friends we met in the ocean (on the AIS)
Have a GREAT DAY!
Had some fun in GeorgeTown during their annual Regatta.. Luck be had, we showed up for day 1 of the races..
The locals are allowed to build temporary shed’s on the beach to make restaurants and bars for the weekend event.. they all have to be removed by the following Wednesday.
(If you’ve been in the Caribbean you know this is hard to find!) Frozen Chicken “parts” are a common item we buy.. it’s just the way it is here.Heading up the Exumas we pulled into a random spot called Rudder Cut.. We had no idea what was there other than some shelter for the night..
Being the only boat, we found a nice spot near a huge cave.. and a nice beach! Love this place…
A boat on the AIS was ‘following’ us all day… soon enough they peaked around the corner and anchored with us..
Then another boat showed up… and we knew them from San Juan… small world eh! Sundowners on their boat were welcomed!Eventually a Cat came around the corner with a lot of screaming or yelling go on… or is that laughing??
Looking a bit closer, someone is up the mast, underway? It ends up being a family from Australia (does that explain it?)
They bought the boat in France and are sailing it back, taking an extra year in the Caribbean 🙂
Their son is up the mast just hang around having fun.. I’d suggest a 2nd safety line, but otherwise he was having fun and seems to be up there all the time…
Later that night his Dad cranked him up again just for a swing..
We soon were introduced and they suggested we shouldn’t miss a pretty cool treasure in the next bay…
We Kayaked and SUP’d over to find a sunken “Piano” in about 15′ of water.
Rumour is David Copperfield placed it there (why I can’t tell you, someone research that for me)… but it’s very cool!
This is our favourite spot in the Exumas so far (of the 2 places we have been ha!).. the caves are pretty crazy..
Having a blast down here…
Hope you are having a Great Day!Timbo
Made it to George Town Exumas, which is part of the Bahamas..
funny just a few weeks ago, I was walking down the dock in the BVI’s and Georgie asked me..
Hey Timbo.. that boat’s from George Town… where’s that…???
Hummmm well we best crack open the Atlas and go check it out!!!
Caught a pretty nice fish on the way over.. Just pulled the line in to clean some seaweed off of her..
Relaunched.. and GPS said time to Turn Timbo… So doing a swift turn around Crooked Island, the Fishing line tooook off man.
We measured the Mahi Mahi at 3.5 Feet.. Allie was still asleep so we were able to keep this one…
Robin took charge and in minutes the filets were in the fridge waiting for dinner
All sunsets and Sunrises were beautiful.. hard to tell them apart!
At around 3am the moon would rise, not to be left out.. with a spectacular show for the the late night crew shift!
Finding our way into this anchorage was interesting.. Robin and Allie on the bow with a portable VHF… while Timbo creeped her in..
Didn’t hit a thing.. nice being a totally unmarked channel with coral heads everywhere! GPS co-ordinates from Snowman helped a lot!
Time to drop the dingy and explore this place!
oh ya.. and pay our $300 cruising permit… do ooh! Maybe I can sell that FISH!
Have a Great Day!
