I ripped the mainsail. Yep – ripped it good.
So, in this video we fix the sail with sail tape and thread.
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 great little day we had together. Molly and I snorkeled around a bit while Tambi worked on her tan.
Just a lovely day, in a lovely place – Shroud Cay!
2.7.17 We moved to Shroud Cay today. N 24*31.473 W 76*47.785 We tore our mainsail today because we forgot to take off one of the bunt lines. When we first got to Shroud, I jumped into the water to wash my hair. I saw what I THOUGHT was a shark right before I jumped in the water, so we stuck the GoPro down in the water to check it out, turns out it was just a Remora. A giant Remora. I was terrified to jump in, but I faced my fears, and did it. Man was it scary! (If you don’t know, I have a legitimate fear of sharks, and pretty much anything that has the potential to bite me in the water) After that, Molly worked on her scrapbook of our family and friends while Ben and I worked on the sail repair. Good thing Will didn’t use all of our sail tape! Haha! We think we did a pretty good job!
I just can not get over the beauty of the sunsets here in the Bahamas. Everyone is different and I can’t pass up the opportunity to take a photo of one! Tonight, Ben and I had a little date night and we watched the second Hobbit.
2.8.17 We moved closer to the island today to get better wind protection from the incoming cold front.

Then, we went to the beach and had such a great day! This beach is so beautiful and we had it all to ourselves! Imagine that, a private Bahamian beach all to our onesies to explore, and swim in the crystal clear water. Can it get any better? Ben and Molly went snorkeling and I walked along the beach and enjoyed the quiet time alone. After we got back to the boat, we rinsed off and Ben gave Molly a much needed hair cut. Now, it’s not so hot on her neck, and it’s not so hard to take care of.
2.9.17 The wind made it pretty rolly today, so we had a really lazy day on the boat. We caught up on some school, played Kingdom Rush on the Kindle and colored in our coloring books. We were treated with a beautiful full moon shining on the water tonight.
2.10.17 We spent the day on the boat again. It was pretty much the same as yesterday. We fed the Remoras under the boat some oats. There are TONS of them! We also met Mark and Cindy from S/V Creampuff! We met them through the blog, and they just happened upon us today! Check out their blog here. So exciting!
