Out of George Town
13 March 2020 | Lee Stocking Island, Exumas, Bahamas
Well we spent enough time in George Town escaping from the boat when we could with the blustery winds. We have headed north to Lee Stocking Island with a nice sail.
During our time in George Town they were having their “regatta” events and every day something was scheduled and every day they would have to postpone due to wind. With Wednesday the 11th being the last day of events, they had quite a few events on that day. It was a crazy day but a good one for me to hit the grocery store. Boy was I ever disappointed. I could pick up any herb I wanted but no lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, potatoes or onions. I was able to get milk and bread so I guess we will make do with what we have.
The closing ceremonies were at about 5 p.m. and the bonfire was next after the huge rain shower passed. There has been an issue for some time with the water taxis and hotel shuttles crossing the harbor at night at high speeds. This night would be one that no one would forget. As folks are finishing late dinners and heading back to their boats on their dinghies, the radio chatter picks up. Not knowing all the details of what happened, the radio chatter indicated (as did our morning cruisers net) that a dinghy had been struck by a hotel shuttle water taxi and unfortunately the driver if the dinghy did not survive. WOW! Everyone in the harbor......315 boats at last count is affected by the news. I know it will change the amount of time I spend in George Town in the future.
We are glad to be back at Lee Stocking Island where we have a nice peaceful anchorage that we are sharing with five other boats. Life is good.
