The Big City - Nassau
09 January 2013 | Nassau, Bahamas
January 7th - We had a quiet night and the wind and waves seem to have died down a bit. We headed out again and this time decided it would be okay. Although the wind was still on the nose, it was much lighter and we made the trip in 6 hours. Since we are crossing very deep water of the Tongue of the Ocean, Ron ran out a fishing line and caught a small Blue Runner, a member of the Jack family and very good eating. We anchored in Nassau Harbour among several other boats. There is so much traffic through the harbour and with the wind and current it's a bit rough! Tomorrow I think we'll move into a marina while we get several jobs done.
January 8th - It wasn't a bad night at anchor but there is constant movement - if not from the passing boat traffic, it's from the wind, waves and current. In the morning we moved to Nassau Harbour Club and will spend a few days there. We are once again waiting for a good weather window to move down to the Exumas but there is plenty to do and see while we are here. The Harbour Club has a swimming pool and is close to shopping and restaurants.
We'll have some internet while we're in Nassau and are working on getting phone service.
