    Black Point, The Bahamas

    February 11, 2016 on the Bahamas ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    We only anchored one night at Black Point. We all needed to do some laundry. There's a pretty good size laundromat with a convenient store. The dingy dock are poorly built, they are extremely high. The people are really laid back. The entire town is just off one road. We had a dinner buffet at Lorraine ' Cafe, the food was amazing! First time I tried Conch Fritters, nummy. Everyone keep ragging about Bahamians Coconut Bread so we finally got some. We were amazed of how good it was!Read more

    Compass Cay

    February 9, 2016 on the Bahamas ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    We moved into Compass Cay Marina after our anchoring issue. Bob switched our primary anchor CQR to a Bruce. We were all finally able to sleep well. There are nurse sharks in the marina. You can even get in the water to pet them. The marina constantly has these gigantic yachts pulling in for a couple nights or so. We enjoyed watching all these new boats coming in and out the marina. There are also more hiking trails along the cay and a stunning beach on the Atlantic side.Read more

    Pipe Cay

    February 5, 2016 on the Bahamas ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    We anchored in Pipe Creek for a couple days. We were protected from all winds but the current was really strong. Our anchor broke loose three times! I had "anchor stress" ever since then..lol. The beaches near by are gorgeous! The sand is so soft your feet will sink in deep. Curt found us a few conchs, some were to small to eat but the biggest one was yummy! There are trails throughout Pipe Cay that take you to beautiful water sites. They are also a pretty good exercise!Read more

    Warderick Wells Cay

    February 4, 2016 on the Bahamas ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    We sailed 14hours from New Providence to Warderick Wells Cay. Anchored at Emerald Rock. Warderick Wells Cay is home to the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park headquarters. The park is 22miles long and extends 4 nautical miles on either side of the cays. We hiked through a couple amazing trails through the cay, the water was unbelievable stunning! Must hike to the famous "Boo Boo Hill" and the spectular blowholes. There are beautiful reefs and underwater life for snorkeling too.Read more

    West Bay, New Providence Island

    February 2, 2016 on the Bahamas ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Gorgeous anchorage, we anchored two nights here. Right across of Jaws Beach, where they filmed part of the Jaws movie. The water is absolutely amazing. We filled up with fuel at Lyford Cay Marina just north from west bay. The marina is a really high end marina. It took us about 8hrs from Andros Island to arrive to West Bay. Curt and I jumped on a bus on the beach which ended up taking us 30 minutes into Nassau. Curt needed a BTC phone. Nassau is very touristy, there's alot of shops!Read more

    Morgan's Bluff, Andros Island

    January 31, 2016 on the Bahamas ⋅ ⛅ 4 °C

    We sailed 32hrs through the Gulf Stream to arrive at Morgan's Bluff to check into customs. We only anchored two night here. We anchored in about only 10ft deep blue aqua beautiful water! The Bahamians are very friendly but a bit disorganized. We paid $300 per boat for customs and immigrations. We had to raft-up along Migration in a small risky area. Fortunately, we didn't have to back in as they first suggested us to do. Made us all really anxious!Read more

    Mesa Verde National Park, CO

    November 9, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    Mesa Verde National Park was created in 1960 to preserve the archeological heritage of the Ancestral Pueblo people, both atop mesas and in the cliff dwellings below.
    About AD 550, long before European s explored North America, some of the people living in the Four Corners region decided to move to Mesa Verde.
    For over 700years these people and their descendants lived and flourished here, eventually building elaborate stone communities in the sheltered alcoves of canyon walls.

    Canyonlands preserves a wilderness of rock at the heart of Colorado plateau, divided by the Colorado and Green Rivers. Water and gravity, this land's prime architect, cut flat layers of sedimentary rock into hundreds of canyons, mesas, buttes, fins, arches and spires.

    An isolated island-mesa towering 2000ft above the Colorado River. The point was once used as a natural corral for wild horses. Dramatic views of the canyon mountains and the river.
