The sail from the North end of Grand Bahama to Freeport, was calm and uneventful. Not one fish struck, and that was ok, since we have a fridge full of Mahi Mahi and Red Snapper.
I’m always amazed at the various colors of the ocean. It’s all incredibly vast and beautiful!
Once again, Mintaka brought us safely to our destination, where we docked at Grand Bahama Yacht Club.
The facilities here are wonderful. Washers and dryers available, a gorgeous pool to splash around in, and friendly staff who greet us with big friendly smiles.
A local family invited us to their home for dinner, where we feasted on BBQ chicken, peas and rice, potato salad and coleslaw. Everything was scrumptious, and I fell in love with their little girl they call Pretty Girl.
She cuddled into me for a long time and allowed me to feed her dinner. What an angel. We gave the Beckford family all the fish we had caught, and they were so grateful. They told us that most Bahamian people do not know how to swim, so they don’t go into or onto the ocean and buy their fish from the fishermen that stop by once in a while.
Tia is such a sweet mom to her three little children. We asked her if she knew of anyone that needed help, since so many are still suffering from last years hurricane. Tia told us about five families in need, so we will be shopping for supplies for them.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to meet so many amazing people. I learn so much from them and love helping them to feel heard and understood.
