Tomorrow we set sail for the "Exumas", a group of islands south of Abaco. We are so excited to see some new places!! However, we've had to say good-bye to so many friends the past couple days. Most people are heading home now. The great thing about cruising is that we'll probably see our cruising friends in another harbor later on during our travels. Our 1st stop tomorrow is Lynyard Cay which is still in Abaco. We will wait for a weather window to cross to the Exumas from there. The crossing to the Exumas is just as big of a deal as crossing the Gulf Stream. The experienced cruisers who read this will giggle here but I don't care. These are still very new experiences for us & a 12hr passage is a big deal to us. I should say here to the experienced sailors who may be giggling...we do not have an auto-pilot, so we are hands on the entire journey. Scott has been studying the charts for several days, we reprovisioned the boat...we're ready to move on.
I'm not sure what the internet situation will be while we are in the Exumas...it definetly will be intermittent. :( I will update the blog as much as possible so I hope you'll all stay tuned!! So many adventures on the horizons....

Love & Miss you all so much.
