We have chilled out in Spanish Wells for the week! I did a couple of small boat projects, as you do (cruising=fixing boats in exotic locations!). But it was nice to chill in a location with a little bit going on while the weather slowly calmed down a bit........at least I hope it has. We will see in the morning.
We had a great but short sail (7-8 miles) to Egg Island just off the northern end of what is generally called Eleuthera but is really George Island, Russel Island and Royal Island. The anchorage at Egg Island was beautiful - one of the nicer spots in the Bahamas so far. Nothing there but beach and some snorkelling, but just a wonderful setting. We stayed the night at Egg Island to stage for our crossing to the Berrys
To the Berry's - April 26
|Anchorage at Egg Island
We entered the Berrys at Little Harbor Cay, about midway along the island chain. The cut was easy, being nice and wide and deep on the south side of some rocks where we could see waves breaking. Once inside, the depths became quite shallow. We headed a couple of miles north on the marked route and anchored at Devils Cay. We had the spot to ourselves but could see a few other boats in nearby anchorages. It is beautiful and protected from east winds here, but would be wide open to any weather from the west.
