This is a long posting, so get out your drinks and a snack. We hope you enjoy following our travels here. We certainly enjoyed this new destination.
Monday 30th January 2017
As I start this posting we are sitting in Elizabeth Harbour, George Town, Great Exuma Island, Bahamas. It is nearly time for departure and to say farewell to the Bahamas. I think what will stand out about the cruising in this area, are the colours. Beautiful cobalt blue and turquoise waters which never get too rough over the shallows as you are protected by reefs and cays. Sparkling white sandbars that appear and disappear with the tide. Beautiful waters for swimming and fishing, and, endless cays for exploring.
We are waiting on the delivery of a sim card for our Iridium Go Satphone which we ordered last week (Friday) from Florida. They told us it would be sent by fast post that very day, BUT, this morning (Monday) we received an email saying they had not yet sent it due to a muddle in the address. That is a load of rubbish as we have only one address to send it to here which was given to them in full. We REALLY want/need this card as this is our communication link with the outside world, especially for weather, once we leave here. If it does not arrive we will just have to be like sailors of old times and read the sky’s I suppose !!!!
