We arrived at Meeks Patch anchorage on Saturday the 21st, we had 14-18 kt of wind with some gusts to 20 and the wind was on our nose again! Seas while in the Northeast Providence Channel were 3-4 ft with a 4ft swell, which was a lot better than when we were in the Northwest Providence Channel heading to Nassau, we had 6-10ft broad swells with whitecaps. We stayed in the anchorage for two nights and then moved into Spanish Wells Yacht Haven on Monday. We did this for two reasons, one to have our outboard serviced and the second reason is the approaching cold front expected later in the week.

This settlement is absolutely beautiful! The homes are all painted in tradtional Bahamanian colors, grass yards and flower beds! Oh yea, did I mention the pink sand beach? They have a fast ferry to southern Eleuthera and Nassau. This is a major fishing port and agriculture region. Lots of fresh veggies!

Making Way

Well we are in Nassau and it is a lot more busy than the islands weve been to so far. But, we will have an opportunity to go to a regular grocery store and a bank! More later....

Happy New Year! We celebrated the New Year's Eve with fresh lobster. We moved New Years Eve to the Great Harbor Cay Marina to ride out the approaching cold front. We are not alone, many boats decided to do the same thing. We met some folks from "back home"; a couple from Fairhaven, and another from Wilson, NY, both aboard there sailboats. Several of us gathered for fresh conch fritters made by John and Arlene. They were yummy!

We arrived in Bullock's Harbor, Berry Islands on Christmas Eve and set the anchor. We anchored the night before halfway between Bimini and here, on the Great Bahamas Bank in the middle of nowhere. No land in sight, we put a harness on the anchor to adjust for wind and current. We spent Christmas relaxing and took Newton for a romp on the beach. During the evening, we thought we could hear drums and merriment celebrating Junkanoo from shore. Boxing Day was a repeat of Christmas, but we also explored the settlement on foot. We went lobstering; Greg caught a rock crab that was boiled up for dinner. The temperature has been high 70's during the day and low 70's at night with plenty of sunshine. We met a neighboring boat from Canada. Newton has been enjoying some romps on the beach!
