Winter Gloom

15 December 2006 | Bullocks Harbor
I hate to say it but December has been pretty gloomy in the Bahamas. We've had some fantastic blue sky days but more often it's a blue patch in a grey sky. We're relaxing in the boat today, working on weather windows and reading. Hideko is reading "Brain Styles for Lovers" (should I be scared?), a book that Captain Charlie on CatNip gave her before we left Bimini. Captain Charlie is a USCG captain and instructor single handing her Packet Cat to Exuma. We spent some great hours chatting with her in Bimini and we were going to sail around North Rock together yesterday morning but one of her cats got loose (hope the kitten is home safe).

The SSB I/O here isn't great. Not bad in the anchorage outside of the harbor but tough inside the marina. We met David on Magic, a beautiful Baba 40 double ender, today. David and Donna have been in the anchorage and, as of yesterday, the marina for a week or so waiting to be able to get around the top of the Berrys in good weather. We're both set to go tomorrow with light North winds in between fronts. We'll head due South to Devils Cay if the window to Nassau stays open later in the week. I'm beginning to see why they call this the thorny path, I guess I need to reread Bruce Van Sant's book.
