TOTAL MILES TRAVELED TOADY: 64 NM (9 HOURS)
We woke up to the Quest shifting over the sandy bottom at low tide around 1:30 or 2:00 AM. Thank goodness that the opposite also holds true for the old saying, “What goes up must come down. As we finished our night’s sleep the waters did rise again and we were continuing our journey by 7:10 AM.
We slipped through the busy Nassau harbor after requesting permission to enter from the harbor master. There were two huge cruise ships docked and another ship, the Prince Abdul Aziz, that we couldn’t quite figure out. Was it a small cruise ship or some humongous private yacht? I later established the the Abdul Aziz was built for Saudi Royal family in 1984. It is 482' in length, has a 60' beam, luxuriously equipped for 22 guests and has a crew of 18.

After passing through the cut in Nassau we continued on to the Berry Islands where we ducked into Frazer's Hog Cay. We grabbed one of their many empty mooring balls (they were all empty) and went ashore to pay and see about dinner. The place was totally empty of customers but we did scrounge up an employee to accept our mooring fee. We decided not to push the dinner thing and had a quiet meal back on quest and watched the end of the Daytona 500 and the Tennis finals in Memphis. Whoa, guess we may have another impressive young man entering the tennis scene from the Canadian front. Look out Top 20.
