It's Island time!

As I compose this blog, Stephanie is at the helm on the flybridge, listening to Island music, Cassie and Godiva are in their underway spots, and I am in the pilot house, enjoying the beautiful blue waters on a calm day as we head to our jumping off point at No Name Harbour near Miami. We (Steve and Kim MV "Maya" and Stephen and Pam "MV Tides In") will leave at first light tomorrow, Saturday, and put the pointy end East to Bimini, our first stop in the Islands and our check in port at Customs. We will leave there before first light on Sunday, because it's around eighty miles to the Berry Islands. Monday, we will head to Nassau, where we will rendezvous with Jay, Nancy, William, and Judy, (the two sailboats that will be with us) play a few days, then head to the beautiful Exumas.
We won't have cell service, and limited Internet, but I will be checking my e-mail, and blogging from time to time, so, welcome aboard and let's go on "Island time Mon".
Oh, and we will have the poles in. Zing....."Fish on, FISH ON"!

September Song (let's go to the Islands "Mon") out

We had a pizza party Wednesday night on the dock. Several boats were leaving Thursday, and, well, any excuse for a party.

A group of our cruising friends and dock mates, wishing us well, and saying goodbye, as we get ready to pull away from the dock. We will miss them, (except the ones that are going to the Islands) but we will all be together again next winter. What a blast we had. Hugs to all of you! Thanks for being our friends.
