Fun in the Sun!
30 December 2008 | Green Turtle Cay
A wonderful ride across the Gulf Stream from Florida, soft breeze from the south, stars all over the sky, almost flat seas, dawn arrived as we reached the Bahamas, and we sailed all day to arrive at Great Sale Cay to rest and organize ourselves.
The main sail let go at 9am, so we motor sailed with just the genoa.
Four more days of relaxed sailing (10-15 knots of east wind while we sail south) and we reached our current location ( Green Turtle Cay) where we hope to clear customs (when she arrives back from Christmas holidays in Nassau).
Beautiful small town of New Plymouth, founded in 1780 by United empire loyalists, the town is 70% white and 30% black and everyone is relaxed and related (total Cay population is 350).
Very pretty, lots of sailboats, good restaurants, fresh fish and lobsters, cheap scotch, clean and friendly.
We going to have trouble leaving!
All is well, we're planning for a party this evening with Louise preparing Cay Lime Pie!
The Bahamas are wonderful!
All the best to everyone.
