This is our 3rd day at Old Bahama Bay Marina, if the weather forecast holds, we will leave here Wednesday for the Abacos. Hurricane Mathew left extensive damage across the islands, the marina buildings have power, but power at the boat slips is not available. We have to run our generator for a couple of hours a day to keep the batteries charged.
We spent our first day snorkeling along the beach near the marina.
Then spent the afternoon relaxing at the shore.
We worked on “Rascals Retreat’s” generator with “The Lower Place” and were able to get it up and running. They wanted to do something for us for helping them so they rented a 6 passenger van Saturday to take everyone to Freeport and Lucaya. We stopped at the Ocean Reef Marina and met Randy from “Priorities”. We met them when they were starting their loop in 2014 when we were wana-be-loopers. Of course we had to stop at the Marketplace before heading back to West End.
The wind picked up today and by afternoon we had 27 mph sustained winds. We’re glad we are tied securely in a protected marina, possible severe thunderstorms are supposed to roll through after midnight.
We had another fun day hanging out at the marina and beach.
