After departing Half Moon we visited Rock Sound Eluthera. Sorry I did not take many pictures but I did get one of a public phone booth.. yes they still have them here!
We departed Rock Sound for Spanish Wells. We have never brought Magnolia here but have taken the ferry here from Nassau and Harbor Island.
Entering the harbor at Spanish Wells.
This is a new car being delivered to the island. The family that runs this ferry appear Amish or mininite and have been known to break out in hymn as they make their way.
This is the fast ferry arriving from Harbor Island and returning to Nassau
This is my Valentines present for Annette…it’s a love knot! She is really the family knot tyer but does let me tie a bowline now and then.
I was dressed to the 9s for Valentines. Long pants, first since my cousins wedding last fall!
Friends we met in Hope Town were making their first trip beyond the Abacos. It was lovely to share Valentines Dinner with them and two other couples.
This girl is are favorite though…she makes the best chocolate shake in the Bahamas!
Rather than becoming obese in Spanish Wells we departed to the Abacos a 65 mile ocean passage. We had a rolly passage but the real fun was entering the inlet at Little Harbor with breaking waves. Ever ride a 44 foot, 15 ton surfboard…trust me you do want to!
After a good night’s sleep we continued to Hope Town where our friends on Kindred Spirit and Cutting Class welcomed us with open arms and lovely evening. PICTURES COURTESY KINDRED SPIRIT.
We will be here in the Abacos watching for a weather window and for the South Carolina to warm up a little before we head back across the Gulf Stream. Vessel and crew are happy and well.
