We caught one!!!

06 May 2008 | via San Salvador Island, Bahamas
We left beautiful Conception Island this morning at about 8.30am and arrived in San Salvador at around 5pm. A great trip for all of us but no school work got done. Just 40 minutes out of the Riding Rock Marina at San Salvador, Julie finally hooked her first Mahi Mahi (Dolphin fish in the Bahamas, or Doratos in Hawaii). It was 40 inches from snout to the fork in her tail and a lovely greeny-yellow with irridiscent blue spots. So, there was much cleaning of the fish and filleting and cutting into steaks. We all arrived in harbour ready for fish and chips, and I have to say it's the best fish we've ever had. Milo agrees.

Running out of food...aaagh

Blowing 25knots from the South East
A good haul of fish today courtesy of Sam the master spearfisherman. A couple of snapper and a grunt made a nice change from the packet rubbish we've resorted to lately. Oh for some fresh fruit and veg. I'm pumping Sam full of vitamin pills each day to try to keep something decent for that fast growing body.
Iris and Graham from Pelagic have been been very generous. They've provided us with a huge selection of movies and given Ray some more up-to-date navigational charts. Very kind of them. Sam's very excited of course but knows that school work comes first or else.

Who needs trout when there's sea bass?

We left Australia on April 29, 2007 to start our 'cruising the world' adventure with an attitude that life's too short and waiting until retirement might mean the adventure never happens. Sam turned 15 this year and we hope these travels will stay with him for a good way. [...]
Also travelling with us is our Shih Tsu Milo, a seasoned boat dog all the way from Australia and an avid fisherman. He's always the most enthusiastic when we land a fish or when the bait net is cast. Actually, he's even enthusiastic when we haven't caught anything. He adores dolphins and runs like [...]
