Onward to Marsh Harbor
03 April 2019 | Marsh Harbor, Abacos, Bahamas
Eighteen miles to go on our journey to Marsh Harbor. The captain called for an 0830 hours departure. I could sleep a little later this morning which made for a happy first mate. Migration was going into Marsh Harbor as well, but 2 Outrageous would be staying near Lubbers Quarters. So our caliber cruising duo hung together through the Abaco waters to reach Marsh Harbor about 1300 hours.
I wish I could say that it was all without issue, but we could not get our anchor in the right spot. We gave a clinic on anchoring as we tried several times to get in one spot and we just were not pleased how close we were to some folks. We ended up moving across the harbor closer to the dinghy dock and we were fine with plenty of swing room.
As we were anchoring we saw Wayne and Betty on Bright Ayes another Caliber 47 that we have known since we purchased Ti Amo. We also saw Lisa and Raffie on Windfall from Gloucester Massachusetts whom we met down here several years ago. Nice to see familiar faces.
We got our bags together and headed in to Maxwells to pick up some fresh veggies and fruits. It is always a chase for fresh goods and it is like Christmas when you find all you were hoping to get. We pass Wayne and Betty as they are coming back from the store and agree to appetizers aboard Bright Ayes at 1700 hours. We ask if we can invite Charlie from Migration and with an okay, we head over and enjoy a nice hour of sharing stories and goodies.
With winds kicking up this evening we head back to Ti Amo and put our towing bridle on the dinghy and make our way to dinner and the end to another day.
