Home Again!

Our drive home from Marianna was beautiful. We stopped at Florida’s “highest waterfall” in Falling Waters, Florida. It was a nice diversion from the drive, but we didn’t spend very long there. Everyone was intent on getting home so we kept rolling. Turkey sandwiches and ramen noodles kept the group happy as we got closer … Continue reading »

Back in Ft. Lauderdale

On the way in, we fueled up at Lauderdale Marina, went through 2 bridges, then dropped the hook to grill some chicken for dinner. We organized personal gear and then came in to the dock. A highlight of … Continue reading »

Lauderdale. As we approached Ft. Lauderdale, the wind took a more westerly turn and increased briefly … Continue reading »

Wreck of the Sapona

We’ve had a couple of interesting days.  Recall Tuesday, our port sail drive (forward/reverse gears) went out. This is very unusual and not fixable in the Bahamas. Without power on both sides, the boat is extremely difficult to maneuver in tight quarters. The good folks at Fun in the Sun Charters brought us a new … Continue reading »

Update from Bimini

Today, Tuesday, we’re about to head out to Great Isaac Island, then tonight back to Bimini for the night. All is well! Ya mon! We sailed to the dolphin grounds on Moselle Bank, but alas, we did not spot any dolphins. We decided not to go all the way to Great Isaac due to the … Continue reading »

Mr. Bob made his world famous potato salad and that was awesome. All the kids have been enjoying Big Game. We spent a good bit of time in … Continue reading »

At Big Game Club

We had a nice night on the boat at Gun Cay last night. The group had fun running the dinghy, talked to some girls on the beach, fed stingrays, and then we motored north to Big Game Club. Big Game has a pool and shore power so we’re going to be cool! Since we’ve already … Continue reading »
