On the Hook
15 January 2011 | Green Turtle Cay
Beth - sometimes mid 60's but warm today
We dropped the mooring line in Black Sound and came out on the high tide, seeing no less than 10 feet all the way. Fifteen minutes later, we were anchored off the Government Wharf at New Plymouth. Because of the afternoon high tides, it made sense for us to come out tonight, and move on down through the Whale cut tomorrow morning.
Jim arrived back safe and sound - although a day late because of a cancelled flight from Halifax to Newark on Thursday morning. I'll fill in details in another posting shortly, but wanted you to know that the "Captain" is back on board, the "Skipper" kept the ship in good order while he was gone. We'll be sailing around the Sea of Abaco for the next few days - a night or two off Man O War and a couple of nights in Marsh Harbour. We will reprovision there and wait out the bad weather the first of the week. From there, we'll go along down to Lynyard Cay and then off to Royal Island, stopping to snorkle and beachcomb whenever we can.
