Few breadcrumbs remain
For the past 118 days, although we have had a few choices to make with respect to where we would stop along the way, we have essentially been following a path of breadcrumbs similar to that which most other snowbirds follow. With our pending crossing to the Bahamas, all that is about to change. Once we jump the gulf stream, there will be no canal or ditch to follow but instead, wide open water from anchorage to anchorage. In some ways this will be easier but in many others, it will be more challenging, taking a lot more planning and thought on our behalf. The Bahamian charts and guidebooks that have been quietly resting on our shelves and in our navigation station are about to get some exercise.
By the way, our first experience celebrating US Thanksgiving was awesome. Thank you so much Robert and Theresa for inviting us into your home. We had an incredible time!
