We’ve been here long enough to fall into a nice little Georgetown routine. Mornings are usually spent hiking on Stocking Island; it’s covered in trails for miles and no one uses them! Of the 300 plus boats surrounding us, we may only run into 2 other people on our trail. We just love having our ..
Oven Rock at Great Guana Cay is a perfect name for this oasis in the Exumas. It’s a big rock protruding out of the water with a large oven like hole on the side. Naturally we climbed up and explored but couldn’t get around to the oven side to see what was cookin’. We met up with a fanta..
Forty miles south of Paradise Island is the Exumas. There are enough islands and cays in this 130 mile stretch of the Bahamas that you could visit one every day of the year if so inclined. If only there was no such thing as hurricane season then we could really take our time. Every couple of days ..
It’s hard to believe we’re in Nassau! We’re not in the busy, busy port you’d probably go into if you were on a cruise or flying in because theft is really high and we hear the boat traffic is outrageous. I’d be scared to death to drive Pepper near a gigantic cruise ship. They might not see this li..
Bimini had gorgeous turquoise, white sands beaches that we enjoyed all to ourselves. It felt like we just went on vacation for a few days and is hard to believe this is life, for a while. The coolest part about it though was when we met up with a production crew from the Discovery Channel. Guess w..
It’s a long story but we’re finally in the BAHAMAS!
After two failed attempts at making the 120 mile passage from Marathon to Bimini Bahamas the third time’s a charm. We turned Pepper ..
So we are still in Marathon. It has been less suitable weather to make an escape to the Bahamas since we showed up here, and as such we sit and wait. We have had a good time here. Almost 2 weeks ago we moved the boat into an anchorage area inside Boot Key harbor due..
Coming to terms that we can’t legally travel across most international waters and enter into other countries with a weapon on Pepper became our reality this week. Trent carried a Keltec PF 9 pistol for the last several years and we brought it along with plans to dump it before leaving the country…
When people bid us farewell they always hope we have, “fair winds and following seas,” and I really never understood what that meant until our most recent voyage. I always said thank you and nodded my head in agreement not wanting to let them know how very little I know about the subject. Fake..
The trout have really been biting good lately so I jumped up first thing this morning grabbed our pole, bait bucket and a rusty pair of fish grabbers (everything is rusty). I asked Trent to pick me up some shrimp while I was gone yesterday so that I could get an extra early start knowing that ..
