What do Jack Sparrow, Edward Scissorhands, and Sweeney Todd all have in common?
Well, they were all victims to Tambi’s trespassing.
But first, let me tell you about Rocky Dundas…
We knew about Rocky Dundas long before we moved out of our house and began our search for the sailboat.read more
Warderick Wells is a great place! It’s inside the Exumas Land & Sea Park – so that means no spearfishing, no trash disposal, no food, no fuel, no water, etc… BUT it does mean that the wildlife and natural scenery is about as raw and untouched as possible.
In this video, we explore the island of Warderick Wells. There are bones of sperm whales, there’s a blow hole, and there’s a hill with a pile of drift wood on it.
Tambi LOVES the blow hole. It really is cool. It think we were there around low tide because the hole was blowing only air – no water. That’s my amateur analysis anyways, as I have very little experience with blow holes.
Oh yeah! We also add our little piece of driftwood to the pile at the top of the hill. Apparently it’s some sort of ritualistic thing that’s supposed to give you good luck. I don’t know about all that “luck” stuff – but it is cool to have our contribution added to the pile.read more
Watch Video 37 Here! I ripped the mainsail. Yep – ripped it good. So, in this video we fix the sail with sail tape and thread. Exciting stuff. Oh, there’s a lot of footage of Tambi in a bikini – so that’s always good. There’s also this bit where Tambi jumps in the water with a shark. By the way – did you know that sharks LOVE oatmeal? Who would have known? Then, there’s this great part that shows you a ton of footage of a wonderful day at a private beach. Oh man, it was so great. So relaxing. What a...read more
HIGHBOURNE CAY. Lovely little island, but also very expensive. This is a private island / resort that caters to the big super-cruisers and sport fishers that have made their way over from South Florida.
The cost of a single night in a slip is $4.00 a foot.
A pack of Oreos is $12.
An avacado is $6.
Still, even with the costs of goods being the highest we’ve seen thus far, it’s still a beautiful setting in clear blue water.
In this post we eat ice cream and Ben goes spearfishing.
Oh, and I’ll show you the most colorful chicken we’ve ever seen!read more
This post is about us leaving Great Harbour, and heading to Hoffman’s Cay – both in the Berry Islands.
This was a great little stop at a laid back, and fairly remote anchorage.
We do some snorkeling, some blue hole exploration, and some general beach stuff.
We’ve arrived at Great Harbour in the Berry Islands just in time for a serious cold front to bear down on us.
The fun part is that even though we have an excellent spot for wind protection as the weather clocks around from the West to the North – we’re wide open to a very rough, roll-inducing ocean swell that rocks the boat for days.
So that, and also the fact that Tambi has been struggling with seasickness, makes for an arrival in the Bahamas that is a lot more stressful that we had anticipated.
All is not lost though, because once the weather subsides, we are able to stretch out and begin enjoying this wonderful place that we’ve been dreaming about for months.read more
