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.

21 February 2014 | Islamorada to Pumpkin Key
Vicki-waiting for good weather crossing conditions
We left Islamorada about noon, once again trying to reach our destination, Key Largo! We finally made it! We arrived at Tarpin Basin around sunset and dropped the hook. It was a wonderful, calm, quiet spot. Dolphins played by the boat until the sun set. Temps in the 80s-ahhhh! The next morning we lazed around,enjoying the locale. Rick changed the oil and we pulled anchor at 9:30am. We took on fuel and water at Gilbert's Marina, Key Largo. While there, we found out that 80 jet boats were on their way there on a Poker Run! Boy, did we time that right. Almost as soon as we left the fuel dock, jet boats started flying by us! After sailing past 50 to 60 jet boats, we arrived at Pumpkin Key at about 2:00 pm. Winds were about 14, gusting to 18 E. We were able to set the anchor across from a very exclusive residence-think it is the only one on the island. The winds were too strong to cross to Bimini, but we are finally In position to cross when weather permits! If weather predictions are correct , it looks like sat. Night, 22 nod will be the best weather window. Won't be much longer, we hope!
