Enjoying the fine weather in Bimini

Our trip across the Gulf Stream was a bit different for Stormy Petrel since we are cruising in the company of two other boats, “Saltine” a Pearson Invicta with Scott and Donna and “Sandcastle” a Catalina 42 with Tom and Sue. The arrival into Bimini brought with it the awe inspiring beauty of the crystal clear waters the Bahamas are famous for as you quickly leave the very deep blue waters of the Gulf Stream and enter the turquoise waters of the of the reef protecting the entrance. In a second departure from our normal cruising routine we are currently tied up at the Bimini Sands Resort Marina enjoying the amenities including the beachside pool, snorkeling, and walks along the nature trail while waiting for the next weather window before we continue on across the Great Bahama Bank toward the Berry Islands.
