Honing Our Skills

(Dollar Harbour, Long Island, Bahamas) If we’re going to do something we might as well get good at it right? As it seems, our current skill to master would be running aground. Today we managed to bottom out our keels not once, not twice, but three more times. Brilliant. Long story short we took the […]

Filling Up in George Town

(Georgetown, Exumas, Bahamas) Filling up on: groceries, shaft oil, free wifi, steering cable info, bbq ribs and rice, and rake and scrape. Morning chores have become somewhat of a regular occurrence on Oceanna. Today’s included inspecting the steering cables as Dave told us a horror story about how he found his hanging by a thread just in […]

Kaliks in George Town

(George Town, Exumas, Bahamas) And this is what happens when you run back into Dave in George Town. In all seriousness we did get a boat load of chores done today (pun intended) and were stoked to run into Dave with a cooler full of Kaliks. Dave is an awesome guy we met back at […]

Sushi Coming Right Up

Abandoned and Elevated

(Lee Stocking Island, Exumas, Bahamas) At the recommendation of our friends we moved down to Lee Stocking Island today. This Island is home to a marine research center. Or at least it used to be. The center is now abandoned and its substantial infrastructure is now a ghost town. I’m talking docks, multiple homes, extensive […]

Weather Tradeoffs

(Little Farmer’s Cay, Exumas, Bahamas) For the last couple days it’s been grey and rainy. Not the preferred island weather, but as we were anchored at Little Farmer’s Cay tonight we were treated to this spectacular sunset out the back of Oceanna. Tradeoffs.

We Finally Did It

(Black Point, Great Guana Cay, Exumas, Bahamas) Yup. We finally ran aground. A cruiser friend once told me there’s three options when talking to someone about running their boat aground. 1) They’ve already done it. 2) They’re about to do it. 3) They’re lying about it. So the way I see it, I’m glad we’ve […]
