At Lucaya, Grand Bahama

We crossed to West End and held for weather a few days. With East winds we headed to Lucaya and are at the Grand Bahama Yacht Club . Winds are high and forecasted to be in the 30 kt range by Monday. We are glad to be snug at a massive concrete dock. Nice pool,grounds,restaurant etc here.

Heading South

We have been moving South from Brunswick Ga. First stop was Ferandina Beach then Jacksonville (Beach Marine) on to Marineland marina and then Daytona. From Daytona to Aue Galle ( near Melborne) and then Vero Beach.

Will continue to Fort Pierce then Lake Worth at West Palm Beach. Looks like a weather window may be in place to cross to Westb End , Bahamas on Thursday

Back to living on the boat.

Sunny and 73
After a preparing updating and staging Bonni's house in Columbia Sc sold in three weeks! We packed up and headed for the boat the next day ....only problem is the boat seems to have shrunk! We will have to sort out what can fit and what needs to be stored. Will be busy preparing for a trip further South...changing fuel and oil filters etc. It is always an adjustment moving back onto 41 feet of living space.

The Wedding

28 October 2011 | Columbia SC
Bonni's son Walker was married in Columbia SC Saturday so the crew of Stargazer was busy planning and participating in the events!
Back to Brunswick GA to check the boat and take care of some some details. Got the NEMA signal from the GPS to the VHF radio after some confusion on wire colors (dealer spliced in a new color scheme) ..

Lots of folks plan to leave Brunswick in November. We plan to go south later...after Thanksgiving at least.

26 September 2011 | Brunswick GA
We are moored stern to dock 9 at the Brunswick Landing Marina. Bonni is busy with Walker's upcomming wedding.

During the very hot August and September we stayed at Bonni's home in Columbia SC.

Now the days are getting cooler and other crusers are starting to retun and prepare for winter crusing.

Brunswick has been a good place to stay for the huricane season so far. No storms came close enough to do damage.
