The second leg of our trip was not as kind to us - 8 to 10 ft swells, not choppy, but soft rolling hills. You would go up, up, up then down, down down - kind of like riding a slow moving roller coaster. This day we traveled for about 8 hours leaving our anchorage in Chub Cay at around 5:00 am and getting to our anchorage at Royal Island, Eleuthera early enough to relax in the sun and once again, enjoy the turquoise water - however, still too cool for swimming, but tempting. Temps right now are like a Minnesota Lake in the summer .
This is Big Run in the rolly waves - not the big 10 footers - because the photographer could barely stand up. Big Run is formerly a boat owned by Jeff & Suzanne Kenyon named Baloo. Before selling her they spent a summer with us at Watergate Marina in St. Paul, Mn. The new owners are Bob & Sharon Bond - and I am adding their blogsite to this page - check out their interesting story.
Thanks to Bob on Big Run - we've got this beautiful picture of Broulee crossing to Royal Island, Eluethera - yes that's the captain in the pilot house window.
Colorful buildings on the waterfront. This island claims to be the most beautiful spot in the Bahamas. Later that evening at dinner, a friend of Cocoon Too told us 1/3 of the islands budget is spent on keeping it clean. We can believe it - it's pristine.
