Manatees And Beaches In The Berry Islands
Watch Episode 65 here!
We go to the beach, we see manatees, we ride in the dinghy, and we eat dinner at The Brown’s Garden, with a French Canadian family. I run around with a couple of boat kids. We fill our water tank with bad water. Tambi does some laundry at one point.
We have a great few days in Great Harbour basin!
6.17.17 Today we had breakfast then went to the beach around 11 or 12ish with the French Canadian family on Zenroots. We had a great time. We also saw two manatees at the marina! We got to pet them! Later on Molly went back to Leo and Charlottes boat to play legos. Ben and I washed dishes then went over ourselves. We had rum and cokes with lime. We all had a great time. Molly and the kids played and the adults talked. They are going to buddy boat with us for the crossings back to Florida.
We came back to the boat right before dark. Molly and I read some of the BFG then we went to bed.
6.18.17 Today is Fathers Day! Molly and I made Ben cards. We went ashore and washed one more load of towels, since I forgot to do them the first time.
After that we let Molly go over to Zenroots to play again. We came back to the boat and realized that we had bad water in our tanks. So very frustrating. The only think we can think that happened, is that we picked up some bad water in Spanish Wells. We had to drain the entire 50 gallon tank (which we thought was 65, so we learned something new about our boat today!) While the water emptied down the drain, I figured this would be a good time to wash the dishes. After we emptied out, cleaned, and refilled the tank, we went to dinner with Zenroots at a place called The Brown’s Garden. It was very good! There was a really cool sea glass pile in front of the restaurant that we got down in and explored.
6.19.17 Today we hung out on the boat, then we went to the marina for showers and ice cream.
We had ice cream to celebrate Molly’s birthday because we’re not sure where we’ll be on her actual birthday.
Ben and I watched Harry Potter 3.
6.20.17 Moved to the outside of the basin today. N 25*46.019 W 77*53.322
Zenroots is here. Molly and Ben went swimming and Molly got stung by a jellyfish in the left knee pit.
We hung out on Zenroots tonight for some popcorn and fun.
6.21.17 Today we moved to Little Stirrup Cay to prepare for our crossing to Bimini tomorrow.

I spent the afternoon baking things to get ready for tomorrow. We had birthday pancakes for lunch for Molly.
We went swimming with Zenroots. Then they came over for brownies and popcorn.
