Last Day in Bimini

12 December 2006 | Bimini
We had been enjoying Bimini for a while because the weather has not been favorable for crossing the Banks. It looks like finally tomorrow will be the day we will sail (er, motor) to the Berrys. We had made a new batch of friends in Bimini and many of them are planning to leave tomorrow as well.

We scheduled the day before our crossing for diesel maintenance and we wanted to get the work over with early in the day so that we could relax later in the day. We spent a good part of the day saying goodbye to new friends and didn't wrap up maintenance until three o'clock or so. We wanted to go to the beach one last time before sunset. The crew of Side by Side, a Manta catamaran in the harbor, was out on the beach, so we joined them for some relaxation. The water was too cold for Randy and I (26 centigrade) so we stayed on the sand and watched the kids create an obstacle course for their hermit crabs.

We got on the computers at the Ministry of Tourism for some Internet access (first time since FL other than SailMail) right at the end of the day. The folks there knew of a gentleman in Baileytown who was making bread so we were able to pick up two loaves of Bimini bread before we left. Now we had really done Bimini right!
