January 26, 2011 - Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas
From the Abacos we thought it time to head further south in search of warmer climes. We crossed to the North of Eleuthera from Cherokee Point to Royal Island in the company of several boats all choosing the windy Northern weather to fly across, rather that the prevailing southerly. We would meet up with with many of these boats time and again as our paths crossed on the voyage south.
After Royal Island we went through current cut and crossed to anchor near this bridge that joins two parts of the Island that barely touch. It is known as the glass window.
That night we invited the crew of Vontana, Ryan, Alexis and Luma, to our first beach BBQ, first of many.
We continues south, found some very cheap moorings in Hatchett Bay, some very cheap rum in Governers Harbour and then ran to Rock Sound to hide out another weather system. This picture taken when we went ashore for a picnic to escape from cabin fever. Maybe not such a good idea after all.
As the weather improved we explored this town and surroundings. This cave system south of town has some amazing root systems growing down into it and was a great place for a picnic with our new friends.
