Arriving in Spanish Wells, Bahamas

19 April 2024

sunny

Today was my first ocean crossing and long cruise. We pulled up anchor in the morning and left the Exumas for Spanish Wells, on Little George’s Island on the Eleuthera Island chain. The crossing was just over eight hours crossing the Exuma Sound in to the North Providence Channel. We were a little nervous at the beginning because we had to cross the "mine field" but we got through it safely and without any issues.

Once we anchored, Phil and Anita took me to town to see where they spent about 3 weeks while their catamaran was getting work done. This was my first town with adorable colorful houses and nice landscaping with conch shells.

We had dinner at the Shipyard Restaurant. It had gorgeous view, hot crab dip, coconut chicken strips and a pineapple down drink.

After dinner we moved upstairs to their bar where they had some live music. After one more Kalik beer we walked back to the boat to settle in for the night.
