Bimini and Away
20 January 2012 | Bimini, Bahamas
We got away from Dinner Key Marina and made the 1 hour trip to No Nome Harbor where we anchored and prepared for the crossing. Wednesday morning we arose at 4:00 a.m. and started out of Biscayne Bay, into the Gulf Stream, and with fair winds and some great sailing at 7+ knots we made Bimini at 3 p.m.
We followed Midori in through the narrow cut and took a slip at Bimini Blue Water Marina. We toured the city of Alice Town, the berg of Bailey Town, had a nice meal out with the wives at Bimini Restaurant, rented a golf cart and went through the new fancy development. We bought a dozen lobster for $30 and had a great meal Friday night. Tomorrow we will rise and leave for Nassau, a 28-30 hour trip and then on to the Exumas.
Weather is cooler than desired so we are working our way South to find the Sun.
