We left Provo, Turks and Caicos on Sunday April 7th and sailed back into the Bahamas arriving at the south eastern most island of Mayaguana. From there we have day-hopped about 285 nautical miles in a northwesterly direction up through the Bahamas out-island chain stopping at Betsy Bay, Mayaguana; Atwood Harbor, Acklins Island; Portland Harbor, Crooked Islands; Clarencetown, Long Island; Conception Island; and Cat Island.
|Needless to say beachcombing was very productive since so few other people ever access these remote beaches !!!|
|Bird Rock lighthouse marks the northwestern end of the Crooked Island. The lighthouse dates back to 1876 but like most navigation aids in the Bahamas it is no longer working.|
|We set the fishing lines on our way from Conception Island to Cat Island and had success!!! A Yellow fin tuna (top) and a Black fin tuna (bottom).|
|The Hermitage is a 20 minute walk from town up a paved road. The remaining distance is a walk up a trail to the mountain top after passing through this portal.|
