And the cruise begins ....

It's taken a week, but we're finally watered, fuelled, provisioned, connected and somewhat repaired (still no solar or anchor light). We’re currently floating at anchor in a beautiful isolated spot called Elizabeth Island, not far from our beloved Stocking Island.

This afternoon we attended an historical lecture on Stocking about the Bahamas, while eating a great (kosher-not) pig roast lunch - a tradition there on Sundays. We also communed with some local sting rays (see pic below) – attracted by the remains from the fresh conch salads served on the beach.

Then we ended the day with a snorkel off the boat, I painted a watercolour inspired by my surroundings, we had a wonderful dinner that we made of poached mahi mahi (dolphin fish – not Flipper), and enjoyed another gorgeous sunset.

So life is very good right now. In a day or two we may head to Long Island (Bahamas, not New York) - about a 4 hour sail due South. We'll go where the wind takes us for the next couple of weeks - and we'll keep you posted on this site. Enjoy the whole extra hour of daylight – yeah!

The first two pics are from last night, and the rest are from today ...
