A couple of days ago we made it through the Whale and docked at Leeward Yacht Club on Green Turtle Cay. The Whale was still a little lumpy, but we didn’t get our asses kicked too badly, so we were happy. We hung out at the pool the day we arrived, and yesterday took the dinghies over to White Sound and checked out the Green Turtle Yacht Club, followed by a walk to the beach on the ocean side. Then we dinghied over to the beach at the Tranquil Turtle Bar, a really nice beach bar, and had lunch. The beach is really nice there:
The view doesn’t suck either. From there we dinghied over to New Plymouth, the settlement/town on Green Turtle Cay, and walked around for a bit, then back to the boats for a relaxing evening. Mark and Jan came over, and we had drinks and yucked it up for a few hours.
In an hour or so, we will leave Green Turtle and work our way back to the US. We are planning to stop at Powell Cay, Allens/Pesecola Cay and Great Sale Cay. Then will leave Friday around noon and sail overnight to Fort Pierce Inlet at Fort Pierce, FL. The current plan is to motor up the ICW to Vero Beach Marina…one of our favorite stops. We will have spotty or non-existent cell and internet coverage after we leave today, so I won’t post anything else until we hit the US. My Verizon cell phone will be working again when we arrive, so you can text or call after Saturday.
We really don’t want to leave the Bahamas as the weather is just finally getting nice…go figure. We have work to do on the boat and on our house at Lake Erie, so we need to get back to Southport NC, where we will dock for the summer.
