Even though there have been many steps and places I have enjoyed in getting to this point, it does seem like we’ve arrived! Christmasy (at least how I have known it) it’s not; however, the occasional carol heard reminds me of what I’m missing. The only white stuff is warm and soft, found at the fringes of the crystal clear blue waters, and the only reason to shovel it is if you want to dig a hole or build a castle.
We arrived in Bimini this morning after a beautiful overnight passage across the Gulf Stream. There was no moon so the only lights were the stars and occasional cruise ship, lit up like the small cities they are. There was a glow on the western horizon from Florida and you could still tell where Miami was as we neared Bimini. Cleared customs, acquired our cruising permit and hoisted the Bahamas courtesy flag which should stay there for the next 100 plus days. Life is good!

  1. Glad you made it safe and sound. Wolfe has just arrived too their this week. Say hi to him if you see him. His boat is named Easy Goin’

    Hope you guys have a Merry Christmas. Just so you guys know we have almost no snow here. It’s been around +1 all week. If winter keeps up we’ll be back in the water in Winnipeg Beach in early May!

  2. Merry Christmas Ungers! 😊 Missed you at the Giesbrecht gathering yesterday, but everyone is very jealous of you! Glad to see that things are going well and I look forward to following your trip. Awesome photo of all of you on the boat!
