Bimini, Bahamas!

" WE MADE IT"- on winter solstice and before Christmas!
Motor-sailing for 48 miles Miami to Bimini, watching the water temperature rise to 81 degrees and loosing depth ( soundings on chart for depth 2700 feet!), and correcting for the 3 kt current of the Gulf Stream. We were hailed on the radio by other boats crossing and got some good intel into what to expect upon arrival in Bimini.
The crossing was highlighted by another pod of dolphins riding our bow, sighting flying fish everywhere, and watching the water color turn a deep clear blue.
We arrived in Bimini 8 hours after departing Miami-
With our yellow "quarantine" flag flying, John took customs forms & our passports while I was "required by law to stay on the boat". Then a quick visit to immigration and we were in!
A pina colada on the beach, dinner of Conch and Kalik. Decided not to jump off the back of the boat after seeing these bull sharks circling at our dock-


We'll leave this marina and anchor at Gun Cay Saturday night- then move to Bimini Sands Marina for Christmas (will be sure to post pics from the infinity pool!!). We checked it out today and the place was empty. Leave it to JC to find us a safe, quiet, lovely spot to spend Christmas and protected from the predicted cold front & squalls coming our way. We plan on attending a Christmas service at an Anglican Church here on Bimini Christmas Eve.
The lead picture is of me finding a couple of overgrown Christmas Elves in the holiday spirit!
Take care, be well, and a most merry Christmas to all our family & friends.
