So a few weeks ago we were very excited because we were finally able to connect remotely.
- Our wifi antenna gave out
- Our TV quit
- Our satellite phone stopped working
- And finally, our Spot satellite messenger died
Other than the TV, none of those items were abused or used outside of the intended environment. (I assume the TV folks didn’t expect their television to bounce along at 7 knots in 6-8′ seas.) It just goes to show that saltwater is a tough environment, especially for electronics.
But now, on to the point.
Basically we’ve lost contact with the outside world.
To let keep you posted, we’re in the Abacos, anchored at Lynyard Cay. We made the trip from Royal Island today, and it wasn’t as nice as we had hoped. Since our last post at Warderick Wells we’ve been to Allan’s Cay in Exuma, then Royal Island last night outside of Eleuthera. After all that calm weather, we found some decent wind so we could get north for Sabrina’s parents to fly in to Marsh Harbour tomorrow.
Pictures will follow, along with a humorous narrative about our time in a very crowded anchorage at Allan’s Cay. But for now I’m going to get some rest after our long sail to windward.
