Adonai crossing to the Sea of Abaco

13 March 2017 | Sea of Abaco
chilly!
God’s beauty ahead as the sea stretches out between nations, filled with wonder in-between as nature is a force which you can be certain is full of changes.

Monday 8:13 a.m. Feb. 13, 2017 Adonai is headed to the Sea of Abaco to serve this years Boy Scout High Adventure program. Aboard with Captain Ted and Gail is our family, parents Mary and John and nephews Jack and Garrett. With a fairly early and a light breeze we Adonai is moving rapidly at 11 knots on the sea making record time across the Gulf Stream.

By 4 p.m. we are approaching Gun Cay. Sanding strong but not to tall the red and white striped robustly round light house is looking like a buoy marking the small arid island. Accompanying her are two concrete ruins a weathered dock, a few palms and sparsely scattered scruffy pines bent from the years of wind. Cat Cay across the way has a forest of palms and is populated with large beautiful homes. The water has changed from the 2,000 feet of deep blue to pastels blues and greens. The clear water shows the shallow channel floor of 10 -15 feet. Over head a plan buzzes by and one of the island activities onshore is a burning fire sending smoke from the trash pile and I am grateful to pass by rapidly.

North West Channel is ahead night is falling quickly. The many bright lights of fishing vessels are mixed in with the smaller lights becomes confusing playing tricks with your mind. The beauty of the orange loom above and the southern sky shares another story. The tone of calm peace gives a restful spiritual place to bask for a while. Adonai is dancing on the water. This is what she does best ,what she was created for, totally at home on the sea. Looking up to windswept clouds a hammock for the stars the vast opposite of poverty and pain active in the world as we pass in the protected moment of time for just a time, which to shall pass and evolve into what at this time is the unknown.

The night turned nearly the extreme opposite of moments ago. The wind and seas are raging with a current kicking up short pounding waves we are close to Chub Cay. We take shelter behind Whale Cay securing our dingy which has been rocking out of control on the davits. A quick deep comatose sleep for an hour before we head on. Weather has changed nothing like the predicted calm winds blowing 29 plus on the nose.

Tuesday morning still dark and Ted has cranked the engine on next is the windless bringing the twisted anchor chain up setting us free. A blessed morning the wind direction has changed so it is smooth sailing heading towards Hole in the Wall. A small rocky out island with yes a hole, a majestic natural large hole in the wall of the 40 foot cliff point . Our final stretch is ahead the seas are rough but with us. The wind is predicted to change again this afternoon so what lies ahead may be very rough. I am a bit fatigued to say the least we have been up most of the night. Again a blessed afternoon hugging the shore of Great Abaco.Porpoise come and greet us on our final stretch to Little Harbor to enter the cut into the Sea of Abaco. The wind dropped to 15 to 20 calming the protected Sea of Abaco. 5 p.m. anchor down at Tahiti Beach, white sand peering forth , steaks will soon be on the grill, showers to refresh and a full nights sleep for all!

I am thanking God for another successful crossing and praying for his goodness to touch the hearts of those who will be joining us this summer on to explore the Sea of Abaco one of God’s beautiful creations.
