We're finally here! And it's just as lovely as I remembered. Our Internet is super slow, though, so reading and writing blogs will be very intermittent. If you don't hear from me on your own site, I apologize in advance. I'm going to try to keep reading as much as possible, if and when pages will load. Getting a comment to go through will be an extra credit assignment!
Today we will leave Bimini and head to the Berry Islands. We'll stop halfway there to anchor for the night on the Bahama banks in about 20 feet of water depth. We'll be about 30-40 miles from the nearest dry land, something possible in very few places on Earth. By Monday afternoon we should be anchored in the Berries where we'll sit for a few days and let some windy weather pass us by. Hopefully we'll have a bit of connectivity there, but wind protection is more important and will drive our choice of anchorage.
If you're curious about the position and status of the boat while we travel internationally, you can always check this Twitter link. We will use our satellite phone to post short updates there so our families don't worry about us.
