Current Location: Current Cut, Eleuthera, Bahamas
Miles Traveled: 12
Weather: Mostly sunny, breezy, mid-70s, showers during the morning
Highlights: Busy day today! Started early with Terry working on the 2nd fishing rod holder while Amy did a load of laundry (taking advantage of the marina electricity). Left the marina at noon, and motor-sailed south past Meeks Island to Current Cut. Scouted out the west side of the island, then went through the cut to check out the east side, but after going only a little ways, realized that best anchorages were on the lee side of the island. Current going through the cut is fierce (approx 10 knots at mid-tide - we were fortunate to catch it near hide tide, so only had to fight about 4 knots of current coming back. Dropped anchor around 3, then dinghied over to a nearby coral islet and snorkelled for about an hour. Crystal clear water, and saw many varieties of fish, including a 3-foot sting ray, a couple of small barracudas, and a lion fish. Back to the boat for some R&R, a gorgeous sunset, and California Yellowtail from the grill (with rice and corn). Fish was yummy - tasted similar to tuna or amberjack. Updated the log, then reading and off to bed.
