Anchors Up!!!

Sunrise over North Palm Beach

Woo Hoo !! Looks like we have a weather window on Wednesday . We are SOOO excited!!! So, early tomorrow morning we are pulling up the anchor & moving Malaika closer to the Departure point which is called Peanut Island. It's only 30 minutes away but closer to the inlet opening we will go through when we leave early Wednesday morning FOR THE BAHAMAS!!! We do have to make one stop en route to Peanut Island at a marina so we can top off the fuel & water tanks. That means docking. I hate docking. I think it's one of the most anxiety provoking experiences in sailing. And I'm not even doing the hard part, which is parallel parking a 25,000 lb sailboat to a little dock. Scott does that. All I do is throw lines to guys on the dock & the whole experience still just makes me want to vomit. I know other 1st mates out there can relate! :)
I should have phone service until Wednesday so I hope to do one more blog before we go...after that it may be 7-10 days before I have Internet. So, just in case.... Merry Christmas everyone! We love you all so much!! XXXOO
