      Kevin and Pat Come to Exuma

      December 31, 2023 on the Bahamas ⋅ ☁️ 72 °F

      We were so happy to have Kevin and Pat come for Christmas. It was such a great visit. The weather was almost perfect, and we were able to get them to all the sites. They saw little Exuma where we found my favorite beach, Pretty Molly. Kevin and Dave went fishing. Kevin and Pat got to see the pigs. We all frolicked on beaches, snorkeling and sunning. It was just a really nice time.

      What Could Go Right? Again, just about everything. We made some great memories.

      What Could Go Wrong? Well, we are back on the boat for 5 days until Tyler and Marissa come, and the toilet is not working right. Dave has a messy project in front of him. No fun!

      Staniel Cay to Great Exuma!

      December 6, 2023 on the Bahamas

      Oh my goodness, I can not believe we made it! We really and truly have made it to the most Southern (ok, we MAY go to Long Island) part of the Bahamas we are heading. And we are set on a dock for a few months while our family and friends come and visit. It is a pleasant little marina with not much around it in the way of provisioning, but plenty around it in the way of beautiful beaches, resorts and little islands to visit. We are set to explore the Exumas from here for an extended amount of time. We had to race to get here before 30mph winds kick up this afternoon and evening. That will be followed by 6 to 8 ft waves for a few days. So we got up at 6am this morning and raced with the wind at our back to what we hope is a safe and secure home base.

      Today's bad weather gave us the permission to sit around the boat and settle in to our new home. We will begin exploring over the coming days. We are really excited to have Ella and Davis visiting before Christmas and Pat and Kevin visiting Christmas! Aimee will hopefully be making the trip in January. Invites are out to anyone and everyone! If you think you want to visit the Exumas and have a boat at your disposal, now is the time!

      What Could Go Right? Dave repaired the dock we are on - hey it's the Bahamas - and our electrical issues have been mostly resolved. It was fun boating into the sunrise this morning, that isn't something we have done before. And we seem to have all the right equipment to be set to ride out storms as they blow through during these windy months.

      What Could Go Wrong? Communications are a bit on the difficult side. We are having some trouble keeping up with work. Honestly, that isn't a huge "wrong", but it does put a little stress on everyone who is helping us out. We will continue to do the best we can and be grateful for the help we have!

      Great Exuma

      December 12, 2023 on the Bahamas ⋅ ☁️ 79 °F

      We are still holed up in our marina, snug as four bugs in a rug. The weather is not very good. But we have managed to walk every day. We found a secret beach! And we have had to work some while someone was out sick.

      What Could Go Right? We are very glad we set the Chace we did. If we hadn't, we'd be stuck right now in some horrible winds and weather. We are also very glad we are on a dock. The winds and waves here have been such that we would have had a horrible time with the dogs if we hadn't done what we did. We also wouldn't have met the great people we have!

      What Could Go Wrong? When it's windy, the waves are big, and hanging at the beach isn't all that fun. When it's not windy, the bugs are terrible!

      Bahamas - Dritter Tag

      February 1, 2020 on the Bahamas ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

      Ein Traum ging in Erfüllung!☀️
      Wir starteten um 8:30 und fuhren mit dem Boot raus. Unser erster Stop war auf einer Insel mit Leguanen, die wir füttern konnten. Diese waren allerdings sehr schüchtern und wollten garkeine Trauben mehr essen. Als die Crew Toast auspackte, waren die Tiere dann nicht mehr so schüchtern😅
      Der nächste Stop war auf einer Insel, auf der wir mit Baby-Haien schwimmen konnten. Das Coole daran war, dass die Haie richtig zutraulich waren und sich sogar ein wenig an einen gekuschelt haben. Haie fühlen sich übrigens ziemlich hart und rau an🦈
      Der nächste Stop war auf Exuma, der Insel mit den schwimmenden Schweinen. Das war ziemlich süß, allerdings haben die Tiere sich kein bisschen für Menschen interessiert, sondern nur für das Essen. Darum gab‘s auch ein paar Bisse in Finger.
      Der Guide erzählte mir, dass eine Familie dort auf einem Hausboot lebt und sich um die Tiere kümmert. Zudem kommt jeden zweiten Tag ein Tierarzt und schaut, dass es den Schweinen gut geht. Jedes Schwein hat zudem einen Namen.
      Das ‚Ur‘-Schwein war der größte von allen und kannte sogar das Kommando ‚Sitz‘.
      Der nächste Stop war dann eine Insel auf der wir zu Mittag gegessen haben, woraufhin auf einer weiteren Insel zum Abschluss am Strand entspannt wurde.
