A front is moving through the Bahamas over the first part of this week, so yesterday we tried to get an early start out of Marsh Harbour. That didn’t work out so well, apparently none of the marinas open until 11:00 on Sunday, which we would have known if any business on the island actually posted operating hours. No worries, we hung out on the fuel dock at Harbourview Marina until they opened and talked to some of the other boaters on the dock.
After we were able to get diesel and water we departed at noon and made a quick 25 nm motor down to Lynyard Cay to a nice anchorage that we knew was protected from the north and northeast winds that were predicted. We came back to Lynyard because we assumed that with the weather, it would be deserted, and we were right. Looks like most folks hunkered down in Hope Town or the marinas for the blow. We’ll be hanging out here for a couple of days while the front passes and getting things ready for our jump to Eleuthera next week.
In other news there is no truth to the rumor that the only reason we’re hanging out in the Abacos until next week is that I want to see the Superbowl….
