Marsh Harbor | Abacos | Bahamas

We had a great trip and arrived safely in the Abacos. We have a lot to write about so stay tuned.


Passing of a Dear Loved One

My dearest Aunt Mae passed this week after a very long productive and blessed life. Had she lived to see March 6th of this year she would have reached the age of 89. She is survived by her husband Uncle Murl, her son, Billy Wayne, grandchildren and great grandchildren and a half sister. Aunt Mae was the last living full sister of my mother and I had a wonderful relationship with her. Lana and I saw her last summer and had a wonderful visit. This gives me pause to remember to give the roses while they live.

Give Me the Roses

Wonderful things of folks are said
When they have passed away
Roses adorn the narrow bed
Over the sleeping clay

Give me the roses while I live
Trying to cheer me on
Useless are flowers that you give
After the soul is gone

Praises are heard not by the dead
Roses they cannot see
Let us not wait till souls have fled
Generous friends to be

Faults are forgiven when folks lie
Cold in the narrow bed
Let us forgive them ere they die
Now should the words be said

Nassau to Abacos

We are leaving Nassau today and are headed for the south end of the Abacos Islands in the Bahamas.


Black Point | Exumas | Bahamas

We are moving today from Warderick Wells to Black Point in the Exumas. All Is well and Happy Valentine’s Day to all.

We hope to have better connections to the web from our new location.

Update......We are now in Black Point, Exumas, Bahamas. This is a great place to stop over and we will write a detailed post later. All is Well!


Exuma Park | Warderick Wells | Bahamas

We arrived Warderick Wells last night. We will be here through Tuesday morning. This is a well protected mooring and we will wait here for the next front to pass this weekend. I hope that my son will add some links and additional information to this post. The wifi here does not allow the use of skype. We should be able to skype sometime next week. In the event of an emergency you may contact the Exuma Park office and ask them to relay a message to us.

Nassau Bahammas

We arrived Nassau Bahamas today. We left Morgan Bluff, Andros, Bahamas at Midnight and arrived at Yacht Harbour Marina about 9AM. We cleaned the boat, topped the fuel, the girls went swimming with dolphins (more on that later) and we will leave tomorrow to cross the yellow bank and arrive in the Exumas. Stay tuned!


Morgan Bluff, Andros

We are currently in Morgan Bluff on the Bahamian Island of Andros. We are planning our next crossing tomorrow night late to head for Nassau where we will spend a few days. The crossing is weather dependent of course there is a large front expected to arrive Monday. Today we rented a car and explored the island. Had a great lunch at Taste and See, great authenic home cooked food and very reasonably priced. There will be a more extensive post in the near future, most likely while we are in Nassau.


Passing Chub Cay, Bahamas

At approximately 1500 CST Mary Rose V checked in and reported heavy seas on the bow. At time of contact she was approximately 35 nm west of Nassau, Bahamas. May take refuge at Chub Cay, Bahamas for the evening if anchorage is favorable.
