Yay!!! Finally have some Internet!! It's been 3 weeks!! Hope I still have readers!
We are currently in Staniel Cay, Exumas. What adventure we've had!! Do to Internet/weather glitches, I am not able to post more pictures....hopefully tomorrow.
We've been to 6 islands since I last wrote. This group of islands we've been exploring are called the Exumas. Staniel Cay was the location of the James Bond movie "Thunderball". A huge portion of these Bahamas are protected parks so the water, islands, & reefs are pristine. It's so beautiful. We have never seen such clear water. I hope you'll all stay tuned for a photo blog. We've seen sharks, turtles, wild ocean swimming pigs, an island of iguanas that only exist here in Exuma. I have been a bit surprised by how remote these islands are. I have Internet now only because we took a mile & 1/2 dinghy ride with very dark grey skies & choppy seas, to "town" & we're sitting at the Staniel Cay Yacht Club (beach bar). We waited out a 2 hour rain storm before beelining it over here when there was a small window of sunshine. We were determined to get to town today to take our buddy Andy out for a cheeseburger to celebrate his birthday. You can not imagine how WONDERFUL a burger is when you've been out of the USA for 5 months. It's a little slice of Heaven.
Love & Miss you all so much. Please stay tuned to the blog. So many adventures to share with you!! Will post again asap. Hopefully tomorrow if the weather plays nice.
