Bahamas Update

Leaving Conception IslandC (N 23.50 W 75.06) for Georgetown at 10:20 a.m.

Conception Island is an uninhabited island ~170 nautical miles ENE of Cuba, ~300 nautical miles SE of Miami and is a protected Bahamas Island under the Bahamian National Trust. No man made structures, fishing, shell gathering, conch harvesting, hunting, etc. allowed. It is beautiful. We were in an isolated cove by ourselves last night. Yesterday we snorkeled and today we hiked the island. There is a creek you can take inland to a lake on the island at high tide full of conch, green turtles, rays and nurse sharks.

There were only 6 other boats anchored on the 8 miles of beach surrounding the island, and it turns out we knew one of the boats. Tom and Jackie Jackson on another 3 stateroom Kadey-Krogen North Sea were anchored and we had happy hour on “In Your Dreams”. Great time!

Last night, we played dominoes (Sarah won for the 34th time in a row) and then laid on the upper deck looking at stars with a nightcap. No city lights or moon at all so the stargazing was phenomenal!
