Moving on again

Bimini Jan 2013 023

Today it was cool and cloudy so weBimini Jan 2013 001 went to see what North Bimini was like.  We walked to the ferry dock where $2.00 gets you across the channel between the two islands.  There isn’t much to see in North Bimini.  A few marinas, restaurants and shops but we did come across something interesting.

The Dolphin House in Alice Town is worth the $2.00 tour.  Ashley Saunders is a local artist and historian.  He has built the house himself using recycled ceramic tiles, shells, bottles and coral.

The weather looks decent for the next few days so we are heading out in the morning.
We are heading to Nassau which means crossing the Great Bahamas Bank.  It’s more than a day trip so we’ll be anchoring in the middle tomorrow night.  That sounded kind of scary to me but it’s pretty common.  It’s very shallow out there, 10 to 20 feet average.


Hopefully by Tuesday we will be in the Exumas, that’s the string of little islands south east of Nassau and that’s where we plan to explore for a while.
We won’t have wifi for a few days so I’ll catch up then.

About Us

Brian, Sally and Cricket the cat sailing on our 41 foot Morgan Classic sailboat. In October 2011 we sold our house, quit our jobs and set out for Florida in search of a sailboat. We found her in Madeira Beach Florida. A 1987 41 foot Morgan Classic. Our plan is to sail for a couple of years. First to the Bahamas, after that...who knows.
