Default Some pics

I have a bit of time tonight so will post the first 5 pics of our trip in sequence.

1 & 2 - launch at Haulover Park, North Miami.

3) GPS showing our running speed of 65.9 MPH and 110 deg. course to Bimini. I think we crossed in about 45 min but need to confirm that. Not bad for a diesel boat

4) shows SPOT tracker and how flat the Atlantic was

5) Cat Cay about 9 miles south of Bimini where we cleared Customs. Took 2 hours same as last time as planes get priority.

1) Bob at Cat Cay Yacht Club - actually the fuel dock.

2) Leaving Cat and heading across the Bank

3) Hans turning the Go Pro video camera on off Paradise Island. Should have some good video to post when home.

4) Atlantis from offshore

5) Cruise ships as we enter Nassau harbor

Last batch of pics. That completes our day Saturday. Spectacular day up until prop breaking.

1) Atlantis from harbor side

2) Hurricane Hole Marina, Paradise Island. $4.00 / ft Ouch, I thought Key west was bad.

3) Nassau Harbor & bridges from Nassau over to Paradise Island

4) Sunset as we made our way to Highborne Cay for the night.

5) Nurse shark at Highborne Cay, not the one that checked me out when trying to change the prop ! LOL

He, he. They say nurse sharks are harmless but I had no intentions of finding out. LOL It was kind of a funny scene as I was in the water hanging onto ladder with one hand, prop wrench in the other and Marc was holding Hans' ankles as he hung face first over the swim platform. Like I said, would have made a funny pic but needed a fourth person to take it.

Going to boat now. Lift out at 10 AM. Will know in a while whether we are boating later today or flying out. Nice day here just yet but can feel breeze is starting to pick up.
