After arriving in the Bahamas on Thursday, the kids hit the pool and were thrilled!! We then headed out for a celebratory dinner for Dakota's birthday and our sucessful crossing.

The next day we helped our neighbor Ken with his dinghy

Pile of conch!

This shipwreck is amazing to look at and not an uncommon sight here!

The beach and cemetary are beautiful.

Our second day here we went for a long walk to the beach and then around town. The beaches are beautiful and strewn with conch shells. The wind had been blowing and the waves in the gulf stream were visibly huge!! The towns here have one main road about one car width, most people walk or ride golf carts.

There was a birthday party at the marina where a fellow cruiser helped the kids make conch horns which they blew on for hours and now we have restricted conch blowing times! Don't worry forlk we're making them for all your kids too!! =0)

Hi Jill,
Thanks for the email, currently in Cat Key, tried to leave last night but the weather window just wasn't big enough. Will keep waiting to cross the Bahama Bank
