Next up…

9 Dec

We plan to leave Great Harbour Cay at sunrise tomorrow and sail down the east side of the Berry Island chain to stay on Chub Cay for the night. So sad to say goodbye to Great Harbour. This is a very wonderful island, and the people are warm, friendly and caring. Provisioning today includes a new Tango must…hogfish.

On the island Herbert is the fish man, and he has promised Peyton several pounds of hogfish tonight…can’t leave without that!

Hogfish and lobster. Yes, this is Andy's portion (if you couldn't tell from the hot sauce)

The plan on Wednesday is to cross over the last bit of the deep Atlantic (the Northwest/Northeast Providence Channel) and head into Nassau. We are hoping to do a combo of marina/anchoring while in Nassau to offset the cost, but that is weather dependent. We love it here in the Berry islands, and aren’t super excited for be adding more time to our Nassau visit (higher crime, expensive marinas, lots of big boat traffic), but there is some squally, high wind junk coming in on Friday. We’d rather be ahead of the nastiness, than socked in…and we have a very good reason. The girl’s big Christmas present is coming up…two days in Atlantis! We’ll be staying in their marina (yes, dock fees give new meaning to expensive), but it gives us free admission to the park during our stay.

The girls are so excited, and with no family this year we don’t want to miss this treat due to nasty weather, so off we go!
