After 450 miles of cruising from Stuart we have roughly reached the midway point of the Exuma Cays. The trip so far has been exciting, interesting, entertaining and a visual feast for the eyes. The nature of the cruising is quite different from anything we have experienced so far – very long open water passages, shallow ‘visual piloting rules’ (VPR) routes around and between large and small cays, swift currents, and ever present wind. We are very fortunate to be part of the PDQ flotilla, which is comprised of cruisers with a wide range of experience, from novice to expert. The group’s diversity and camaraderie has definitely made our introduction to the Bahamas that much more relaxing and fun.
Because good wifi access is rare and relatively costly in the Bahamas (not to mention there are so many other great things to do!) the text portion of this post will be short, and we’ll let the pictures do the talking.
We hope to provide the next post from Georgetown, our southern terminus in the Exumas chain.
