We really have no pictures of the crossing because we no one wanted to let go of their ass to grab a camera so we will start with Vero Beach and then the Banks.
I don't seem to have any photos from Marsh Harbor. I think Debra took the pics. I pretty much just had a beer in my hand. SV Odin came into town and we racked up a horrific tab at Snappa's. I was too stupid to notice the 15% added to the tab, so I added another 15%. Idiot. Next time Deb handles the transaction.
Marsh Harbor is a busy place. You can pretty much find what you need here and if they don't have it you can run over to Man O War and probably find it there.

|Weather heading to Hopetown. Suckers.|
We left for Tiloo Cay on a blustery day of upwind sailing. We did good for a while but then the wind was right on the nose so Mister Yanmar helped out a little. Tiloo is a favorite of ours. There is a nice quiet beach there and we made use of it. Hardly anyone around.
The next day we jumped over to Lanyard Cay. Not sure if I spelled that correctly but I'm too lazy to look it up. We had a nice quiet night listening to the surf pound the other side. We were going out the cut in the morning and when we woke up everyone who was crossing over to Eleuthera was gone already. What the hell! I know we are slow risers, well, Debra is. Once I get some go juice in me I'm good to go. Debra is pretty much in dim awareness until about 10 am. All these other knobs must just fall out of bed and hit the start button. Funny thing is we caught them right at Little Egg. Slackers.
We pulled into Royal Harbor because we had a blow coming. We weren't sure if it might come early and we didn't want to be caught so we dropped the hook. Friends moved on to Hatchet Bay and we were to follow if the blow didn't happen. Something else happened instead.

Apparently the water was in there since the crossing. Surprised there weren't barnacles growing on the water tank.
We left Eleuthera early this time and hit Current Cut in a rage. So much for timing it at slack water. Geez it was a sphincter tightening moment there for a bit. There is a reason they call it Current Cut. We have to do better at timing these cuts else one day we will be in some shitty situation we will regret.
We sailed/motor sailed through the Exuma bank to Highborne Cay. Hate Highborne Cay. Do not like the marina and the anchorage sucks. Good holding but rough waters. We were bounced pretty good in there. Megayacht central as well. One Mega dude dropped anchor in front of us in the dark. By morning he was next to us. The wind didn't shift. Anchor alarms. Hello!

We are running out of internet soon so I'll end it here for now. I'm a wee bit behind in my posts and it's not going to get any easier from here on out. We are currently in Georgetown and about to head to Long Island. It's time to move fast and get to the DR.
More photos to come.
