It is now 'officially' hurricane season and we have already had two tropical storms here in the West Atlantic and a couple in the Pacific as well - all before what the NHC predicted would be a benign season. We are watching the weather closely and because of our late start on the cruising season (due to the refit) will not be heading South to Panama and the Pacific but North to New England. The Bahamas have been quite nice so far (but shallow).
We have been snorkeling, diving, spelunking in the many sea caves, fishing, entertaining and being entertained by other cruisers, fixing little things on our and other's boats, bonfires on the beach, guitar sessions, etc.
Now having sashimi from the tuna caught on today's leisurely sail from Black Point (24d06.12 N, 76d24.12 W 8 ft! sand) out Dotham Cut (3kn current) to Hawks Nest Point, Cat Island (24d09.52 N, 75d31.34 W 10 ft sand) just off the resort with three other yachts. Tomorrow we plan to continue on to Conception Island which is uninhabited and is said to be quite pristine.
