Up at 6:00 AM and again we pull anchor by 7:00AM and head for Rock Sound, Eleuthera.
Very rolly and windy and we have just the head sail out. We get rolled enough that the dinghy in the davits just touches the water a couple times. I am getting a little concerned that one of these rollers might break on our open stern sending water into our cockpit. Finally as we start up the west side of Eleuthera the waves settle down for a much more comfortable sail. We dodge a couple squalls, but still get enough rain to wash the salt off our decks and canvas. This is good because I need to do some sewing repairs to our dodger when we get to Rock Sound. Again as we come around the western end of Eleuthera we are now on a close reach and the waves are coming over the bow and spraying the whole boat in salt water, so much for our rain shower wash down.
We all drop anchor in Rock Sound around 2:00 PM. We head to the grocery store, one of the best in the Bahamas. Mark and Karen also makes a run to fill their empty rail fuel tanks. They come over to our boat for drinks and appetizers and then we head to Sammy's for dinner and are back on the boat at 8:30. Mark and Karen are leaving early tomorrow for Black Point in the Exumas, where their son is flying into, to sail with them for a week.
