It was a fabulous day for a sail. Just perfect conditions - winds 18-20 knots from the beam and near flat seas.
A random pretty boat sailing past in the opposite direciton.
Meshugga sailing into the anchorage at Calabash.
We'd heard our friends on Miss Adventure from Oriental on the VHF. Were excited to be in the same anchorage with them for the first time in the Bahamas. Sue waving at us on the dinghy.
Went for a short visit and catch-up. Fun to see them!
We wanted to tour the creek behind the resort and possibly follow it all the way (about 3 miles) to Joes Sound.
Tight squeeze for the dinghy thru this narrow opening.
Even at mid-tide rising, the creek ended up too shallow for us to pass. We reluctantly turned around and came back the way we entered.
We had been told that the Cape Santa Maria resort welcomed cruisers to their happy hour. It was true- nice folks.
Not an in-expensive place, even at happy hour. Beers were $5 each and drinks were $7.50. But beautiful environment. And they did bring a round of free conch fritters over.
Back to the boat for a short visit with Meshugga. Plans were hatched for a trip to Great Inagua. We'd earlier ditched those plans, but the winds look more favorable now so we're going for it. We'll depart tomorrow.
