Current Location: Fernandez Bay, Cat Island, Bahamas
Miles Traveled: 31
Weather: Mostly sunny, windy, mid-70s
Highlights: Anchorage got "rolly" around 4AM today, so we were up earlier than planned, and raised anchor at 7:30 to head over to Cat Island. Was buddy boating with Low Flite (John and Christa), but they couldn't get one of their engines running, so they decided to turn around and head back to Rock Sound. Probably a good decision - we spent 4 hours slogging East into 20 knot headwinds and 5-6 foot swells before finally getting a bit of shelter from Cat Island. Turned south, raised sails, and finally arrived at Fernandez Harbor at 3PM. We heard on the VHF that fresh fish would be available at the Govt Dock at 5PM, so we beached the dinghy and walked about 2 miles down the road. Unfortunately, no boats showed up, so no fish tonight. We did find a gem of a grocery store, and picked up a few items, including a couple of Klondike bars (yum yum). Baked beans, hot dogs, and cole slaw for dinner tonight (it is Saturday, afterall), and early bedtime for both of us.
