Arrival of a New Year

01 January 2020 | Great Harbour Cay, Bahamas

With our arrival on New Years Eve, we were able to accomplish what we had wished. Greg sat patiently with the Customs and Immigration folks and we got six months for the boat and then 120 days for ourselves. But the boat was the big thing this year. After the first of the year the new rates go into effect and six months would cost double to $600 instead of the $300 we paid. So Happy New Year TiAmo, this is your last “cheap” year in the Bahamas. Just to clarify......it costs NOTHING for Greg, Jaxon or I to be here, and the fishing permit is free as well.

So on to waiting for others to arrive and see who else braved the crossing. And as they came rolling in, it seems everyone had the same idea......and almost the last boat in was our dear friends on 2 Outrageous. There were about four or five boats that had crossed together from Fort Lauderdale and anchored at night behind Mackie Shoal. Seems Ti Amo was the only one that continued through the night on the banks. The best part of the trip was on the banks with 15 knots and on a beam reach so we had no desire to stop.

When you have boaters together there tends to always be a “appy hour” and today was New Years Eve.......but boaters midnight is quite different that the strike of 12:00. With our 5 o’clock “appy hour” we raised our glasses and toasted in the New Year then. Greg, Glenda and Jaxon are operating on little sleep and we are hitting a wall so we end and head to the boat for a quick salad, weather discussion, our slice of pumpkin pie (thank you Ed and Mari-Etta) and then BED.

Happy New Year! On to discover the waters of the Bahamas!
