Berry Islands Club

11 February 2013 | Frazier's Hog Cay, Bahamas
We sailed from Bimini to Berry Islands Club on Fraziers Hog Cay, Bahamas on Friday along with our friends Keith and Ida aboard S/V Cheers. We anchored in the middle of the ocean on the Great Bahama Banks, where there is shallow ocean water as far as you can see in every direction, for several hours in the middle of the night so we would arrive at our destination in daylight. The wind has been blowing 20 - 30 knots for the past 2 days and we have been tied up to a mooring ball between islands. It let up this morning so we could get to shore at the Berry Islands Club, where Howard started the generator so we could access internet. Fraziers Hog Cay is separated from Chub Cay by a river and mangrove swamp. We are going for a 5 mile hike to Chub Cay and then back again today. Tomorrow we are going by dinghy around the island and up the river where we are told the bay and river are full of turtles and rays. We might even jump in and snorkel with them. No phone service for us yet, we will probably be getting that set up when we get to Nassau in the next week or so.
