Abacos Revisited

19 May 2009 | Cherokee Point Bahamas
Dawn
Getting from Cat Island to the Abacos was an adventure. We went outside in the Atlantic for the experience of a long passage. It was long-34 hours as we hit a front halfway through that was forecasted to be later in the week. We arrived in Cherokee Point with two problems - one side of the dinghy had a leak and we had consumed lots more fuel than planned. Bruce started patching on the dinghy. We were the only boat in the anchorage with a fabulous beach. After two days we decided dinghy was holding so we went into Cherokee Settlement to see about getting diesel in containers as the water is too shallow to take Lady Hawk in town. Really helpful people-lady in store ask the first guy that came in if he would use his boat to take diesel to our boat. You will see a pic of him with his little girl. He had two 18 gallon tanks. We loved Cherokee and stayed five days in all.

Since then we have revisited several cays that we remembered from last year. While we were in Man Of War Cay we got the bottom of the boat painted and stayed in cottage for a few days. Here is the rest of the story about the Cat Cat orphanage. The church we went to in Man of War is very involved with the same orphanage and had just delivered 470 pounds of lunch snacks the week before in the pastors plane.
