February 19, 2012 - Georgetown, the Exumas

Well, We finally made it to Georgetown. The official distance travelled to here from our log is 2,658 nautical miles. We are approximately 150 miles NE of Cuba and after travelling this far it sure is tempting.

Georgetown is the final cruising destination in the south of the Bahamas. Although very small, everything is catered towards the cruiser.

At present there are some 250 boats at anchor in here .... although they say that there are usually upwards of 500-600.

This place is very sheltered and very pretty and relaxing. We plan on staying here for another 3 or 4 days before heading out to Long Island, some 30 miles to the south and east, for a week before heading back this way. We also plan on continuing south until we cross the Tropic of Cancer. Why you say ??? Because it's there and we're so close.

I'll get another update out to you tomorrow ... after fixing the outboard, cleaning the boat, (oh yeah, I did the hull today) and all the other things that should get done. The boat is working great and we're having a great time.
Oh yeah .... the temps are in the high 80's
