New blog entry, including lots of pics and a BBQ pic for CD!

I just put up about 40 pictures on our blog, from Bimini to Nassau to Allens Cay to Normans Cay to Warderick Wells. One of the pics has CruisingDad's name written all over it. We've also been regularly updating our blog with a new entry every couple of days, so if anyone is interested hop on over to s/v Pelican - Following A Dream. We're here in Warderick Wells for one more day, and then we take a brisk sail (winds are forecast to be around 20kts with waves of 5'-10') on Saturday to Sampson Cay. We're going to stay at the club there for a couple of days (it's nice to be tied to a dock every so often), and then visit Staniel Cay, Thunderball, Black Pointe, possibly Little Farmer's Cay and then head to Georgetown. My guess is that we'll spend a week or so in Georgetown and then start heading north.

Yes, right now the plan is to go back to the states for the Spring/Summer/Fall. With our kids on board, I think it's too late in the season to head down to the Carribean and be far enough south for hurricane season. I'm disappointed, but I know we'll have tons o' fun cruising through New England, and then we'll probably head to the Virgin Islands and south later.

Good blog post Chris. Great pictures too!

I worked at the Bimini Biological Field Station with Dr. Sam Gruber back in my marine biologist career days. Good to see the lab seems to be growing and prospering.

Your unidentified fish looks to me like a trevally jack, though it's tough to tell from that angle. In any case I bet it would have been great on a dinner plate!

Thanks everyone... I thought it was a Jack, but I wasn't going to pick a fight with the wife . The field station was pretty cool... and so were the people who worked there.

Thanks all! We're prolly heading through Eleuthera and then Abaco, and then we'll either go to the Chesapeake or direct to New York.
