Hello Once Again
Tuesday 15th December. Marks new crew member, Sally, arrived yesterday. We have done the laundry and stocked up at the supermarket. Our phone has been topped up so we can down load weather reports and keep in contact with the family, and, for Alec - the news of the world, so we are ready to leave Marsh Harbour. It has been nice to have a break, but we are ready to move on. We up anchor and head for the fuel dock as that is our last job. By mid-day we are sailing out of the harbour in light winds of 10kts. It is warm and sunny with a temperature of 28 deg.c. By 1600 we have sailed 23nm in a southerly direction and dropped anchor mid-way down Lynyard Cay on its western shore. There are private homes here, but one can go ashore and walk to the Atlantic coast. The following day we explore the area in our tenders and go ashore and walk to the Atlantic coast side and do some beach combing. Mark catches crayfish, so we are invited to his boat for dinner – yummy. Next day we up anchor and motor the 2nm down to Little Harbour. This is the southernmost point where one stays inside the reef and cays before heading out through the cut and into the Atlantic to continue heading down Great Abaco Island.
