Bimini - a great first stop

February 10, 2015
The weather gods were right and I am glad that I didn’t spend anytime washing the boat upon arrival – the skies opened up overnight and it just poured – Ambition was thankful for the automatic and free fresh water shower! All the deck salt is gone and she sparkles again.

This morning, the entrance to Bimini is awash with breaking waves – wind is 25 gusting 35 knots from the wrong direction to allow us to move on further across the banks and closer to Nassau and the Exumas. 

 It will be Thursday before our next opportunity to move. So Maryse and I set off for a walkabout and stopped at Joe’s Conch Shop for our first Bahamian conch salad – for those that have never had one – you don’t know what you are missing – chunks of raw conch served in a bowl with chopped onion, tomato, bell peppers lots of lime juice and orange juice – chased with a very cold Kalik beer … oh life is good!
