Rock Sound, Eleuthera, Bahamas

Today was mostly a travel day - 50 miles to Rock Sound Eleuthera.  As we were departing Little San Salvador, the next cruise ship appeared on the horizon.  I looked at a calendar online - there seems to be an endless stream of them.....

We had a pleasant motor-sail, made water and washed 3 loads of laundry on the way.  Saw a couple of pretty sailboats too.  Getting close to "civilization" now.

Passed the Cape Eleuthera resort/marina - we'd gotten fuel here in 2012 on a charter boat.   

Got settled in the anchorage and a nasty squall broke.  Washed the salt off the boat!

Same view just a few minutes later.

Made some more bagels....

Over the VHF we were invited to go to shore for a little get-together.  Someone brought a grill and charcoal so everyone brought something to grill.  (I just brought hot dogs).

Nicely behaved dog - I'm terrible with names but I think this is Sharon from Adventures Await.  They came from Michigan thru the Erie Canal!  (Mast had to be removed).

Fun as usual chatting with the various folks.

The sky turned grey quickly and gave us a little problem, we're waterproof!

No-see-ims found us so time to head back to the boats!
