Touring the island
21 January 2009 | GTC, Bahamas
Cool and windy- 40+kph and 60F
A cool wind day with about 25 boats in the harbour waiting for a weather window to sail south.
We bicycled 20km today to the other end of the island to visit Bluff House Inn.... very quiet with few tourists about.
We've run out of fresh water, as have the local marina, so we'll be looking for a source tomorrow before we head out on Friday morning (if the weather cooperates).
A wonderful day of sunshine, strong winds, and exercise.
Louise is making bread, Bill and Ginny are in the dinghy collecting fresh water in our drinking water jugs, our propane tanks should arrive tomorrow, and the weather forecast suggests the strong winds should drop today, with an overnight temperature of 50F...... time to find my socks!
We met some folks from Germany who are sailing south, as well as three Canadian boats also heading south, so we'll organize ourselves and all go together on Friday.... safety in numbers!
