Full Moon Rising
12 March 2017
We left Little Harbour Saturday morning on a high tide and set off for Marsh Harbour. The entrance to Little Harbour is very shallow and we had entered on mid tide with reports of lots of water; however, our lowest depth reading was 3.8 ft. and when you add our 1.2 ft. offset we just about draged the bottom. Needless to say it certainly got our attention in a hurry, hence the high tide departure. We had a great stay in Little Harbour and a fabulous meal at Pete's Pub but we were in need of groceries and Marsh Harbour is a great spot to reprovision. Little Harbour is a unique community of 40 homes, an artist foundry and gallery which all operate solely on solar power.
It was a beautiful warm morning without any wind as we motored along among the cays in crystal clear water. Then out of nowhere a line squall appeared with 25 knot head winds and heavy rain, however "Dagny" handled it like a champ and we arrived safely in Marsh Harbour by lunchtime. Once the shopping was done we relaxed on and chatted with a few boats that we had met over the winter and we were treated to a beautiful sunset and a spectacular full moon. Sunday we'll be heading out to a nearby beach anchorage for a few days before trying to hook up with Chuck and the Atkins ( from HYC) who are in nearby Treasure Cay.
