With Many miles to travel today, we were casting off before 7:30. It was a little rough as we went down to the cut between South Bimini and Gun Cay but soon laid down for a smoother ride. An eerie, blanketing fog enveloped us for several hours then magically lifted to beautiful skies. Traveling through the fog, we faithfully watched our radar as it showed us the approaching boats, allowing us to take evasive actions in a timely manner.
The seas were back to “Hanson Smooth” for the rest of the day and we gawked at the ocean’s floor just 15’ to 20’ below us through crystal clear waters. We saw numerous starfish as we perched ourselves at the railing.

By 5:30 we had made our way to the north shores of Andros and ducked into the cove behind Morgan’s Bluff to anchor for the night. There is a huge Government Dock there but recreational boaters are not allowed to tie up. It is for the water tankers, mail boats and merchants.
