Looking Towards Home
12//05/2015, St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands

Home seems to be getting closer and closer!

Today (Tuesday), we will be casting off for the Bahamas, saying good-bye to the Caribbean.

Around noon, we'll pull anchor and make our way for Mayaguana Island in the southern part of the Bahama Island Chain. It is a 520 mile passage and will have us arriving sometime Saturday morning.

We are so happy to have been able to spend some time with Jenny and Randy (s/v Mystic), here in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. Good-byes are hard, but the good thing is that we'll see them in Canada soon.

We will be sailing alongside s/v Salty Ginger to the top of the Bahama Chain and possibly even right into the Chesapeake Bay - another thing we are very happy about. It has been many, many years since we've sailed side by side with any boat!

Michael will do position reports daily, which we hope will continue to show up on the tracking map.

The snorkeling here has the been the best we've seen in a long, long time. Such vibrant colours and a good variety of coral.

Have tried to keep up with your adventure. The kids have grown so much in the past 5 1/2 years! Still remember seeing you in Deltaville, Oriental, & at Jekyl Island in 2009. Our little Florida Keys & Bahama trips are so simple when reading your blogs. Congratulations on the near completion of your circumnavigation. Still enjoying using the Sail Blog site you taught me how to use while in Deltaville. Jim & Connie Weidman, s/v Frosty's Fantasy
