The trials and sailing tales of Denny & Diane
Paradise At Last
04/01/2009, Bimini

Well after a very long, seems like forever, time, of selling homes and working in Ft. Lauderdale we have finally made it back to Bimini for the start of a couple of months in the Bahamas!
It was an interesting night crossing, not our worst, but far from our most pleasurable! The wind was suppose to clock around to the south to southwest but never made the shift, and was to suppose to be 5-10. Well it stayed 10-15 with 4-6 ft seas. So needless to say it was a slow ride with wind and seas on the nose!!!!!!!!
But we are here, and life is GOOD!!!!!!!! the water is beautiful and we are with good friends Donna and Lou. So all is well that ends well!

Dreaded Weather Windows
03/29/2009, Ft. Lauderdale

Well we have been swinging on this mooring ball now for a week waiting on a weather window!!!!! The seas have been in excess of 10 ft for a week. BUT tomorrow it looks like there is a small window. So we are doing a night crossing with a couple of other boats. The seas are finally laying down for a day, so off we go!!!!!!!!!!! The plan is to go south to Miami then turn east, that way we will have a better angle on the wind. Bimini here we come!!!!!!!

Cruising Kitty
03/21/2009, Ft. Lauderdale

Well it has been a month since we got here to Las Olas Mooring Field. And have been busy working on the farm! But enough is enough, all projects have been completed and we are now waiting on a weather window to make the crossing over to Bimini and points East. The plan is to putz around the Exumas then head up to Abacos for a month or so then head back to Charleston for hurricane season.
Right now the weather guys are saying there are 13-15 ft seas in the Gulfstream, with 20-25 knt winds until Thursday, so we are here until then!!!!!!!!!
