Sail the Bahamas
Some of the crew and I have been talking about islands to visit in July. We’ve had a great experience in Bimini and the surrounding islands, particularly Gun Cay and Great Isaac. Hoffman’s Cay in the Berry Islands was absolutely amazing, so we definitely want to do that again. One thing we’re thinking about is … Continue reading

Been rolling all day. Had a fantastic group meal this afternoon at Sonny’s BBQ in Marianna, Florida. The boys are all looking forward to getting back to school tomorrow (not!). Our ETA back in Bay St Louis is 8pm.
We left Gun Cay at daybreak and sailed across the Gulf Stream once again. Our crossing was quite pleasant with a 10 knot breeze and mild seas. We are at anchor at Rodriguez Key, just a mile or two from Port Largo. The kids have been exploring the mangroves by paddleboard here. We’ll have fresh … Continue reading
We spent the morning hand feeding stingrays at Honeymoon Harbor at the north end of Gun Cay. We pulled anchor around noon and headed to the wreck of the Sapona. The wind kicked up making it unsafe to snorkel the Sapona, so we ate lunch and waited there for a couple of hours for calmer … Continue reading
When we awoke this morning, we went back to Three Sisters reef. The mighty hunters got a good mess of fish. We went north to try to find some dolphins and, while underway, decided to go all the way to Great Isaac. Conditions were magnificent for the trip. We explored the island and, of course, … Continue reading
We ate some good food at C.J.’s Deli today – conch fritters, plantains, fried conch, chicken, burgers, etc. Ty tried to catch a seagull, luring them with french fries. We did some service work at a local church. We snorkeled at Three Sisters. Lots of spearfishing – about 8 fish caught. We saw big bull … Continue reading
We spent last night at the Big Game Club Marina and enjoyed a beautiful day at a beach picnic. We brought chicken and sausage gumbo to share, thanks to Chef Bob. The kids did a lot of snorkeling right off the beach. Big Game has a pool, pool table, and ping pong too to keep … Continue reading
We are at anchor off the beach of Bimini. As predicted, we arrived in the wee hours of the morning. To avoid the hassle of docking at night at an unfamiliar dock (Weech’s was destroyed in Huuricane Irma), we chose to anchor instead. It is absolutely beautiful. We slept in to recover from the long … Continue reading
