  Thanks for the encouragement Dan, but I am pretty sure that the picture I was referring to was taken in Fishermans bay, Guana Cay Bahamas not in Bimini. We might pass through Bimini on our way out, but we did not come in through there.

  James is using this thread to document his journey through the Abacos, where Rose and I just left.  I think he took the picture when Rose, Peter, and I were going ashore to 'Grabbers' where we all shared Thanksgiving dinner (it was a very nice spread by the way, first time I have ever had lobster bisque for thanksgiving).  It was nice to share dinner with James, and we met a bunch of new friends there as well.  I hope we are able to do as well at Christmas.

(on edit: merged the threads to make it a little more clear)

Beauty! What a joy, to see water that color at this time of year. :)

That's a table just begging to be used for lunch, followed by afternoon cocktails, followed by sundowners before dinner...  ;D 8)

Grog!!!

Now *that* is my kind of "main road in town".  ;D ;D ;D



Beautiful pics! That cannon didn't fire a big diameter shot, but what it did fire, I'd bet went a *long* way!

I might be wrong, but I don't think that hole is 'right' for that gun...it does look too small relative to the size of the rest of the weapon.  Perhaps the bore was filled and redrilled small...maybe for salutes or demo's at one time or something.  It sure is a tiny ball that would fit that hole.

Any other takers?

You are right, that is a prop. Only one working cannon there. There is a foundry and they make and sell cannons, working and non-working. I will see if I can get some pics posted from the foundry but due to topless or nude art I may not. Let me take a look.

The lunch picture is taken from Hope Town Harbor Lodge.  "on da beach" is another resort just a few hundred yards away. Nice.

Please wear shirts in town, both Men and Wemon. No shirts is beach wear and you may not be serviced in towns in the Bahamas.

Hi James,

     I finally discovered this thread.  Your pictures are awesome and bring back so many fond memories of my travels through the Abacos on my Mac 26X - The Edge.  Little has changed in the past 5 years.

     All was going well as I explored the Abacos.  My only luxury was a good cup of coffee just before dawn.  I didn't bother with any form of refrigeration.  New friends were just an anchor away.

     My downfall happened when I agreed to cat (as in 4 kitty cats) sit for a Dutch lady on Great Guana Cay for 6 weeks.  She had an estate to die for...the main house faced the ocean and her boathouse/elaborate private dock faced the sea.  There was luxury, opulence, privacy and "security".   When I finally returned to life on The Edge, everything had changed.  Everyone had bailed out for the States as hurricane season was pending.  It was so lonely.  I headed for Florida, too.  I travelled for 3 days without seeing another cruiser. 

       There are tales to tell here but the bottom line for me was...sailing alone can be pretty lonely, even (especially?) when you are in a tropical paradise.  Don't linger too long.

     You have many months before hurricane season.  Enjoy everyday. :)

Be careful of what you wish for because you just might get it.

Thanks for the reply. I had to work 3 long years at 84 hrs a week for this. I did not enjoy the people that I had to wor kwith so being "alone" is not that big of deal for me. We all stop cruising at some point. The %'s still are the same for years. 80% do not go for more than 1 year.

Cruising is what you make out of it. So far, it has been so much better than work that I do not want to go back to a job that I do not enjoy unless it is to get back to cruising.

(i do need to empty the boat some)
