We checked in at Customs as per usual in Bimini and then travelled to Chub Cay. Our longest, boring day of 10 hours. About 2 hours before Chub Cay we avoided a small rain storm but the big one was to come! We could not avoid the second one.
|The big yellow blob is the storm!|
Paul wanted a picture of this cloud formation. Look closely do you see a swan-like bird on the right with maybe a monster with its mouth open behind it? Maybe even a fire breathing monster?
After leaving Chub Cay we travelled the Tongue of the Ocean to Nassau. It is over 10,000 feet deep! Good journey to Nassau, stopped for diesel then headed to our usual anchorage at Rose Island. Just before we arrived to Rose we see there is a huuuuge water spout right where we plan to anchor. We got some good pictures and video that I posted on Facebook and Instagram. While we waited for that to pass, another huge storm arrived. Paul was steering and adjusting the boat because the waves picked up. All good now. We are anchored here.
We did try to leave for Norman's Cay in the Exumas this morning but too rough, so will enjoy it here for a few days.
