Staniel Cay to New Providence (22-30 May 2019)

As I start this update, my heart is heavy for the wonderful residents of The Bahamas that we met during our travels. I hope they were all able to evacuate or stayed safe during Dorian. I also know it will take awhile for the people and islands to heal and I wish you all the best on that journey.

Next, my apologies for being so long between posts. We’ve had a lot going on and I hope to catch up a bit here now!

Steve and I share a photo stream with our family and some friends. This allows them to see where we are and share a bit of our journey. It also encouraged Steve’s sister and neice to brave the small airplane ride from FL to Staniel Cay in order to come join us on Always!

Plane ride = 2 rum drinks before the dinghy ride

We travel north, nearly on the same track we came to Staniel Cay. We shared the Land and Sea Park on Warderick Wells Cay, Hawksbill Cay and Rat and the Mice cays near Overyonder Cay with them on our way to New Providence.

We had a great time sailing, looking for creatures and sharing tasty, simple food.

Afternoon snack-rice cakes, almond butter and apple slices (I do actually have pants on!!!)
My pot for flattening masa into tortillas, then hold and keep warm the cooked tortillas
Breakfast of egg and avocado toast
The dessert tortilla-sautéed apple slices with sauce made from coconut oil, agave syrup and unsweetened cocoa powder. The masa is sweetened with agave and cinnamon.
Looking for another hammerhead shark or some turtles!
Watching sea life never gets tiring!

Sometimes there’s too much sun but still so much to see!

We had a great visit with family and looking forward to many more trips like this!
