We spent a lovely couple of days in Hatchet Bay, did the laundry, had wonderful dinners at The Front Porch restaurant (wonderful stone crab), and with a continuing east wind, sailed south to Governor's Harbour where we spent five days revisiting our former haunts.... much has changed! Funny how 35 years can do that. Another day sail down to Ten Bay Beach for some spear fishing and beach walking, then a glorious sail south in 20-25 knots on the beam all the way to Rock Sound. We got the boat speed up to 8 knots with reefed jib and main, and it was a wonderful ride... makes you appreciate the boat design in terms of sailing performance. Today was 2 loads of laundry, a visit to some of the local shops, more fuel for the dinghy and getting ready for four days of heavy weather scheduled to arrive in a couple of days. We'll stay put until the wind settles, and then start back north to the Abacos hoping to arrive in time for Louise's birthday (March 21st). There is no rush, and still lots to explore!
Alive and Well!Sunny and windy!

Sailed through the Current Cut with the help of a local dolphin and then headed south east into 15-20 knots of wind.... as tight hauled as I could be. We arrived at Hatchet Bay at 2:00pm, and entered the tiny opening at the harbour mouth to find a wonderful safe place to spend a couple of days exploring.
