Our passage to Miami today was wonderfully uneventful. And as a fitting farewell to Fort Lauderdale today, we saw Steven Spielberg's yacht Seven Seas. Oh my, Google THAT if you want to see something about the lives of the rich and famous.
The weather looks favorable to cross the Gulf Stream tomorrow, so after a dinner of left-over spaghetti, we're prepping the boat to cross to Bimini in the Bahamas early tomorrow morning. We will probably leave around 4 a.m. Danny installed the jack lines and secured the dinghy to the davit/arch; we checked tides and will shortly be suspending our cell phones indefinitely (which feels strange indeed!); we're also stowing random stuff, checking fluid levels in the engines, and calling relatives.
So if all goes well, we won't post for a bit, since we don't expect to have reliable Internet in the Bahamas. But we'll post when we can.
