Georgetown to Nassau

Monday, March 23, 2009.

Nassau, Bahamas.

It's getting colder. There is no question about it. Pants and long sleeves at night and while sailing. Ugh!

We've spent the past week sailing up the Exumas with Allaire, an old friend of Kristen's from VT. We enjoyed the solitude and beauty of a few islands before finally ending up in busy Nassau, elbowing our way through throngs of sunburned tourists.

From here we'll sail to the Berry Islands, then it's goodbye clear water and hello muddy ICW.

Kristen and Allaire keep watch.

Stone formations in the Exumas.

Mmmmmmm.... waffles for breakfast with cream and strawberry jam. That's life on Whisper!

Allaire labors over Mahi Wontons while Hans provides the entertainment.

Kristen puts on her own Bahamas Sand and Salt facial treatment at Shroud Cay, Exumas.

Allaire watches Hans jump off a cliff (if you look carefully you can see him) at Shroud Cay, Exumas.

Kristen shows off her guns!

Kristen and Allaire jump for joy.

The three pirates.

Kristen embarks on a fish jerky experiment... yummy!

Secluded beach off Halls Pond Cay.

This is what the Bahamas are really like.

Sushi anyone? No, Kit Kat, not you!

Hanging out with the Gohlkes on their boat s/v Liberty. Dave is an attorney for Skadden, Kristen's old employer in DC. He's currently lawyering from his mobile office!
