Back to Man O War

We are at the end of this leg of our journey. We are returning to Man O War to get the boat hurricane ready. This is a very secure,calm harbor. We are heading back to the states to spend a month with family. This adventure has been wonderful. We know it won't be long until we have our next sea trip. We wish you wonderful, exciting sea travels!

Tahiti Beach

Hopetown has many fabulous locations, but our favorite area by far is Tahiti Beach. We sailed the boat out of the harbor to the Southernmost point of Elbow Cay, set the hook and kayaked/ dingied to the beach. It is a popular spot for young families because the water is very shallow for a long way out. There are many creatures to see-shells, snorkeling is good and kids can even stand up with a mask on and look under the water. This is a great area for bone fishing. I found several sunrise tellens and some seaglass. I really enjoyed kayaking all around and we both enjoyed snorkeling. Rick spent a good amount of time cleaning the bottom of the boat. The water is so clear you can see the bottom of ocean floor through 7-8 ft of water.

Journey to the Bahamas

15 February 2014 | From Navarre, FL to Venice, Fl
Rick & Vicki/ sunny skies/full moon
To catch up on our journey, this is how it started! 36 degrees on a Thursday morning. North winds gusting 20+, heading South. The crew consisted of Captain Rick and Crew mate Jim(aka-kite man Jim). We've broken up our journey into several segments. 1st leg-from Navarre Beach to Apalachicola. To summarize this 1st leg-bone chilling cold, with rain and a strong North wind. Vicki's hot Taco Soup helped keep us warm. One of the highlights was a sighting of at least a half a dozen bald eagles on the Apalachicola River. We spent a quiet peaceful stay at the Waterstreet inn with Vicki and Patti meeting us. Our 2nd leg from Apalachicola to Pass-a-Grille included more tolerable temps, dolphins leading and a half moon. Jim and Rick set anchor. Jim's brother-in-law, Mack escorted them by personal water taxi to their home on the beach. Carol(Jim's sister), served them snacks and goodies. All went out to dinner, then they crashed in "real" beds! Back to the boat in the morning, set sail for Ft. Myers to pick Vicki up and get Jim back home. Plans changed with a detour into Venice FL. Jim was trying to get a flight home-lots of cancellations due to ice storm in Atlanta. Vicki met them in Venice. We enjoyed Italian food in town. Jim took Vicki's rental car back home the next morning. That ends the third leg.
