Kluane & crew are making their way North. Mother nature is providing some sweet east winds that have made our journey quite enjoyable (all you sailors out there, that means sailing). We are anchoring in spots that are more remote.
The big news is we saw our first green flash. If you are not sure what it is, google it. Cruisers seek the flash for years and years, watching sunset after sunset. Anticipating, hoping there are no clouds on the horizon. We have met many cruisers who have been doing this for decades and have only seen a few. We feel very lucky!
We also have seen some pretty amazing sea life. Many new tropic fish to check off our list — the scrawled clownfish was one of my favorites. Lee Stocking Island is the place to be if you are a ray. We have been informed it is mating season and all the big rays come to Lee Stocking. During a single snorkel, I bet we saw over a dozen, many bigger than our dingy. Don’t worry Mom, they are not interested in us! They are very graceful and eerie all at once. We also have come upon a few smaller coral heads that are teaming with small “baby” fish.
and Seastars. Long white beaches. Rich green sawtooth palms. Hard rough iron rock landscape. Water the every shade of blue, emerald and turquoise.
Mother nature is tough on the Bahamas and that is what really gives us pause. Despite the harsh weather conditions that happen here and how they beat the land, beauty shines through.
Grateful for every moment.
|The Green Flash! So if I crop it down you can really see it!|
|What allows us to sleep really well at night! Spade's not going anywhere!|
|Selfie while driving the dingy -- don't tell Captain!|
|One of the most beautiful beaches! I walked every bit, more than once!|
|They like whatever he has! Ginger snaps! Pigs can run!|
