On our Way

Traveling north and looking for dolphins

Today was a wind-filled day. We had north-northwest winds at about 15-20 mph most of the day. The seas were covered with white-caps with a slight swell (~0.5 meters). We passed the western edge of Grand Bahamas Island and I was reminded of past trips – memories of many encounters and many passengers who shared those trips. The oil derrecks just outside Freeport Harbor always look bigger to me when I see them again. I also got to see the revised West End Marina … called Old Bahama Bay now. It is amazing. Used to be a major resort called Jack Tar Marina. It was closed in late 1989 and stayed dormant for about 8 years. Now it is revitalized and being rebuilt. Truly amazing and bright and new. Still high winds though that caused us to anchor just north of Sandy Cay. While we did not see dolphins today we did see one sea turtle taking a breath. Breath visit to the surface. We chatted with two other boats that had been up north where we all normally anchor and they had not seen anything in two days (dolphins that is) and the seas were much rougher. Let's hope for better luck tomorrow. Cheers Kathleen
