Hi everyone, we've been anchored at Norman Island for a few days now and have been without Internet, so here's a quick update. We must have caught a cold back in St. Martin and gradually each of us has caught it over the last week...the first illness of our trip. There's definitely something to be said for living in open, fresh air constantly. Dad and I got a scuba dive in before the cold set in at Great Dog Island on our way from the North Sound earlier this week. Other than that we've been snorkeling a bit and recovering while the weather is calm.
Tomorrow we plan to sail to Road Town for a serious provisioning trip and then leave for the Bahamas sometime early next week. After a bit of discussion we decided making for the Bahamas is the best idea because there are so many islands to explore there. Plus it gets us further north so that a favorable passage can be made to the US near the end of April. The passage to Mayaguana in the Bahamas will take about three days we think. I will update the blog with pictures before we leave.
All the best,
