After a busy, fun week in Staniel Cay topped off by a starter scare, we are ready to move along. Our merry band of two boats has expanded to four: Paul and Phyllis on s/v (that stands for “sailing vessel”) Caper, Bill Roy on s/v Providence, our buddies David and Nikki on Surely Boo and us.
The four of us race to the next island along the Exumas (we literally race, which makes it more fun. Except Surely Boo are amazing racers and beat us every time. I think we’re getting a little better though).
We drop anchor with 40 other boats in Black Point. This place is a good stop-over as it offers free trash disposal, free water, and cheap laundry.
Next day and a new island: Little Farmer’s Cay and a small, beach anchorage right in front of Ty’s Sunset Bar & Grill. Stéphane and I explore a local cave before we meet the gang at Ty’s. Over rum drinks and dinner, we plan our route for the next day’s big journey to the place we’ve been talking about since the beginning of all of this: the cruiser’s Mecca: George Town.

Some sort of a bug got a hold of me so haven;t been on line for over a week. Just caught up with your last 6 postings. Lovely to see you and Stephane enjoying your island hopping. How about those tan bodies! and Sara, love your island dress!
Hello Grandma! Doesn’t she look gorgeous in that dress? 🙂
I hope you are feeling better now?! You never get sick!! We are definitely enjoying the island hopping although now we are on a “break” from that as we are in George Town, where ALL the cruisers go and most stay for the entire winter! We’ll stay for a bit but we’ll get a move on further south in a week or so, I think.
