Reminiscing about the Bahamas
It was back in February that we first crossed paths with Paul and Sheryl from s/v Distant Shores. For those who aren’t familiar with these two, they have been cruising for quite some time and now produce a very popular TV series. Last night, just after sunset, Rebecca and I grabbed one of the DVDs that they gifted to us and popped it into our laptop. We were rewarded with some amazing visuals from the Bahamas that brought fond memories pouring back. We had a great time cruising in those waters and if they weren’t so damn far west, we’d almost certainly go back for another visit!
No matter what anyone says, the crystal clear waters of the Bamahas are not duplicated anywhere in the eastern Caribbean. In addition to the great footage on the DVD that made us regret missing some of the special spots that they featured, I was super impressed with how much detail they went into concerning reading water depths in those notoriously shallow waters. For the record, I made a post on that same subject but the DVD we watched titled Cruising with the Shards goes into infinitely more detail. Good job, guys! I would highly recommend that video for anyone heading to the Bahamas, not only for inspiration but also because of how informative it is.
Learn to read the water, or else! 🙂
By the way, Distant Shores recently set up an affiliate program so if you do decide to invest in any of their products, they’ll be throwing a few doubloons our way! Cool, eh?
