Bimini at last!

03 May 2013 | Alicetown, Bimini, Bahamas
Beverly/Sunny and breezy
Yay! We finally made it to the Bahamas! We made the crossing from Miami on May 1. We left at 4 a.m. and arrived here at Browns Marine at 5 p.m. It was a long day and of course the sea conditions were not as forecast, although they weren't too bad. The waves were 2-3 feet, confused (like a washing machine), and the winds were light and on the nose most of the way. We were only able to sail the last 10 miles. The Gulfstream pushed us northward of the Bimini entrance, so that added almost 9 miles to the trip. Once we got here we hoisted the yellow quarantine flag, the dockmaster gave us all the paperwork we needed, we filled everything out, and Ralph headed to customs and immigration with all our documentation. (For those of you who don't know, only the captain can leave the ship until you are cleared in.) He said everyone was really nice and was back in about an hour with our passports stamped and our cruising permit, so we were officially all checked in. At that point, we were so tired and hungry we had toasted cheese sandwiches and went to bed early. Yesterday we had a great time exploring Alicetown. Our first meal here was cracked conch and fries! The beach is beautiful, although quite steep (see picture).
