Heading to the Bahamas tomorrow! (and hangin' with Melrna)

For our last night in the US, we're anchored and rafted to Melrna. We had a nice dinner, and we're just hangin' out for the night. Tomorrow morning we head to the Bahamas. There's a tracking link on the right side of our blog... s/v Pelican - Following A Dream.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Have a safe crossing!

Wait for the right weather windows to travel through the islands as weather this time of year can be boisterous.

Get ready to fall in love with the Bahamas!!

Your Spot Track makes it look like you are within sight of Bimini... Have a grand time and take loads of photos, we want a full report.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

Congrats!!!

Congrats on the crossing-looks like you are within shouting distance. We spent a week in/around Bimini back in October-its fantastic sailing grounds, as you will soon learn. I think you'll find the Bimini marinas to be a little different than what you have likely become accustomed to in recent weeks-heh. Beautiful water out there. Congrats, and fair winds. Keep the updates coming.

We ate freshly caught grilled Mahi on board almost every night when we were there. Drag a pink squid-type lure as you sail along the edge of the shelf and you'll do the same. Man, I wish I was there now!
