Finally just getting internet to Post this…Been awhile I know! During the time Lynn’s cousin Kristen was here we were having a sunset drink in Hatchet bay when we were approached by a slightly tipsy older sailor dude named Dave.   Dave has been cruising the Bahamas every year for 15 years on his old beat…

Disclaimer: There are no fish pictures throughout the duration of this blog. Sorry to disappoint. After I dropped Paul off at the dock to hitch a ride to Governor’s Harbour, Foxy and I returned to the boat. It was about 10am, Thursday morning. I had given myself a list of things to do to stay…

  We left Hatchet Bay a week and a half ago, headed south. Paul and our friend, Jay, are taking a catamaran back to Miami this weekend, so we had to stay close by Hatchet Bay, Eleuthera for the time being. Since in Eleuthera, we have been anchoring in the middle and northern parts of…

So as Lynn mentioned on the last post my brother, Brice, spent the last week with us. We have had limited internet, so we are quite behind on the posts. We had an amazing 8 days while my brother was here. The first few days were very windy, and we stayed moored in Hatchet Bay….

Paul’s sister, Arden left a week ago today. She was here during a very important time (without knowing)…to help us dust ourselves off. Offering motivation and understanding only a loyal blood relative could bring. Awaiting her arrival had been a mix of excitement turned frustration. We were so excited to share this experience with her…

Arden here (Paul’s sister) as guest contributor to the CaptainSherman.com after an unforgettable adventure on the Floridian. I fled the cold of NYC for a quick sojourn down to the Bahamas to meet Paul and Lynn on the Floridian. I bought my ticket just a few days out, so I didn’t really have much time…

The Great Harbor Cay Times…

The Great Harbor Cay Times…

We have been anchored and docked in Bullocks harbor (Great Harbor Cay, in the Berry Islands) for over a week now. Lynn and I anchored inside the harbor for the past 4-5 days. According to the Harbor Master (Hans), who is a Cuban expat from Miami, we are not supposed to anchor in harbor. He…

We spent our last day in Bimini anchored up in Bimini Bay outside of Resort World Bimini. We took a look at the casino and had a beer in their hammocks. Crazy contrast, the south of the island vs. the north end. You can walk around South Bimini, checking out hole-in-the-wall bars like “The End…

So we have now been in Bahamas for 5 days, and it has been awesome. It is nice to finally be done with all the prep work that went into getting here, and now be able to have some real fun, and finally spear some fish! The first 3 nights we spent at Bimini Blue…

Hasta Luego, Miami. Hello, Bahamas!

Hasta Luego, Miami. Hello, Bahamas!

Our last week in Miami was pretty chill. We finished some last minute errands, huge thanks to Flavia and Jay for their help and even loaning us their car for a couple days! Nothing like a fresh shower and some transportation. Saturday we spent the night anchored up outside the old abandoned Marine Stadium on Virginia…
