The Berry Islands and Nassau

We left Great Harbour Cay and sailed south to Hoffman's Cay. We stayed anchored at Hoffman's for 5 days exploring by dinghy, beach combing and just relaxing. It's nice to be on island time. On Hoffman's Cay there is a blue hole which is a vertical cave with deep blue water. There is a cliff that we jumped off of into the blue hole. It's only 15 or 20 feet but it took us a few minutes to get the nerve up.

We then sailed to Nassau across the Northwest Providence Channel and anchored off Athol Island for the night. We caught a nice Mahi-Mahi just off Nassau and had it for dinner and lunch the following day.

In Nassau we did some shopping and other errands and we are now headed for the Exumas for about a month. Everyone says the Exumas are the best of the Bahamas.
We are thinking of getting one of these slides for the boat.

The kids went to the eye doctor for some new glasses.

All that fishing gear is finally paying off
