First day we boarded our vessel, little scary at first with my broken ankle and all but Captain Mark made us feel totally at ease. We didn't have much wind but we made it across sometimes at 8kts. Our plan of action has been that there is no plan, we found that Lynne likes a plan she's a planner, so we tell her the plan of the day than we don't do it.
We had a beautiful wedding on board by Captain Mark. I love my new sister- in- law Kim. I haven't seen Brian so happy. The next day we went a to ship wreck called Sapona (The Concrete Ship). We snorkeled the entire wreck which was too cool. It was built during World War I as one of 12 ships constructed of concrete in order to save steel. She was anchored off Bimini's western shore until the great hurricane of 1926 came and laid her to rest. Toooo cooo!!! At that point Monica started to feel the effects of lack of proper hydration. Tom and Jim were kind enough to build a sun shade to keep me cool. Something that you learn is to hydrate your body.
That night we went dancing at the Complete Angler (Hemmingway Museum) Awesome fun to be had!!! We sailed to a place called the rock.. Anchored close to a fantastic beach and swam all day. Now this was the day that Captain Mark saved another sailboat that lost its fuel system and engine. Surviving on the sea brings a whole new meaning to life. We have caught four Barracuda; Mark taught us how to unhook the fish without getting bit, it is a two guy job. Brian reels it in, Jim does the unhooking. Jim has done it three times so he owns that job! The beach we landed on had more shells than you could believe just trying to figure how we can get them home.
Best part of this day (Friday) was the wind finally picked up. Captain Mark has instructed Tom, Brian, and Jim to set sails .We were all allowed to take the helm and the seas were angry that day my friend. It was like an old man tossing a cold cup of soup in a deli. We were in 35 knot winds while trying to reach the harbor. Yes, children we are okay!!!! The rain was pelting like hail on our bodies and the guys were in hog heaven. Captain Mark calls us the motley crew but, me thinks he likes us. We all love him dearly and he will be our teacher on the ocean. Of course, Brian asks a lot questions. What's up with that?
