We are anchored off Volleyball Beach after cruise through the Exumas with stops at Allen’s Cay, Norman’s Cay, Shroud Cay, Black Point, Staniel Cay Farmers Cay and Galliots Cut. The Exumas exceed our expectations and must be one of the more lovely cruising areas of the world. Pretty anchorages, friendly towns, crystal clear water, good snorkeling… the only thing missing was a good Internet connection, necessary for me to continue to work.
Here in Georgetown we join about three hundred other cruising boats. For most this is the final stop on their journey south before they start heading North again for the northern summer. For others, like us, Georgetown is the last place to resupply and recover for quite some time. We will stay here until our mail comes which will include some parts including a marine head (toilet) rebuild kit (yippee), some replacement running rigging and some zinc anodes not available here in the Bahamas.
It is time to catch up on our affairs. But first, tonight our friends Blair and Edith on “It’s a Kind of Magic” have kindly offered to watch Franklin while we have a small night out.
