With a slight break in the wind, we said goodbye to Little Harbor
and were back in the open ocean…Captain on…
Captain off, Richard on
and headed down to Eleuthera, the middle island in the Bahamas.
I must say that this was my most challenging day of travel and I was “horizontal” for the 10 hour trip…not sick, I just didn’t like seeing the swells from the front and the wind chop from the side. We missed all the squalls that popped up
Thankful again that our boat, my captain and and the crew can handle far more than I can!
The seas calmed as we approached Harbor Island and I resumed my spot in the helm.
We enjoyed a short stay at Harbor Island Marina, located on the east side of Grand Harbor Bay.
This island has trees that bring a smile to Jonathan’s face
and people that bring a smile to mine.
Harbor Island is known for its great pink sand beaches,
a quaint town,
busy roads (golf carts and driving on the left side of the road)
other beautiful marinas
and of course, amazing sunsets.
This was our first time visiting just the northern tip of Eluthera and I hope it will not be our last.
