Sweet Visit to Eleuthera Bahamas

With a slight break in the wind, we said goodbye to Little Harbor IMG_9677

and were back in the open ocean…Captain on…IMG_9678

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 IMG_9683

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. IMG_9685

We enjoyed a short stay at Harbor Island Marina, located on the east side of Grand Harbor Bay.IMG_9696IMG_9693IMG_9692

This was our first time visiting just the northern tip of Eluthera and I hope it will not be our last.
