CORNWALL

Bit of a gap in the blog but its thanks to a fantastic sail north from the Bahamas which turned into a series of weather windows for those that were bold and bold we were. Once we had started our migration back home to Cornwall it became a quest and we ended up taking ten days to get to Herrington Harbour [...]

GOODBYE THE BAHAMAS

I am bashing this blog out in the café at Palm Cay Marina which is where we checked into the country and had our papers stamped four months ago. Amongst many jobs from washing through to victualing we have just handed in our papers as we leave for the US tomorrow. The weather looks good so we will do it one long hop to either West palm beach in one night or St Augustine in two. We shall see how it pans out. I cant tell you how the Bahamas have charmed us with their beauty, variety and friendly nature. Put them on your list for they are an absolute gem. This drone shot by Travis Gomez captures some of its magic

PLANE WRECK

We stopped in Normans Cay for some amazing drift diving and spear fishing before exploring a plane wreck by Pablo Escobars old runway.

GUNBOAT

As we left Shroud Cay I couldn’t resist having a look at this stunning GunBoat Catamaran which is actually built by Grand Large who are the same parent company to Garcia so her quality will be assured. We felt rather proud to be related.

LEMON SHARK

The following morning I returned to the mangroves on a paddle board and there is no doubt that that is the way to do it. I got up close and personal to Heron, Duck, Egrit, Turtle and all sorts of fish. The absolute highlight was shadowing a lemon Shark as it cruised about on the hunt. I was only a few feet from its tail until it shot off on short hunting sprints. We then resumed our mutual cruising until the next feed. An amazing experience that will stay with me forever.

SNAIL

This was an oddity for we climbed to the highest point on Shroud Cay to find the trees covered with these snails. Not sure if was thanks to the recent rain but there were hundreds of them.

Bit of a gap in the blog but its thanks to a fantastic sail north from the Bahamas which turned into a series of weather windows for those that were bold and bold we were. Once we had started our migration back home to Cornwall it became a quest and we ended up taking ten days to get to Herrington Harbour North just south of Annapolis in ten days. This included a night West Palm Beach where we cleared into the US, a night in Canaveral to let a fearsome front rip through and an in and out night in Charleston where I had to squeeze in an engine service.

On arrival we out Pearl to bed, bought our flights forward and have been in Cornwall for a week recovering from a bug picked up on the plane. All that lovely clean Bahamian air suppressed our immune system and did it ever reboot as it wiped us out for a good few days.

Pleased to report that we are now feeling like loins and loving being back in Cornwall where we are rejoicing in the little things that we have missed. A fire at night, being able to just step out the door and go for a walk, lots of greenery, birdsong and of course family.
