April 24, 2019 Exporing Lighthouse Bay, SE Eleuthera

Today was my dad’s birthday.  Great memories.  He would have loved the stories of our adventures.  My mom, on the other hand, would have said “now that’s enough of the sailing, you should get a real house and go back to work.”

We finally left Rock Sound after being here for a week.  We anchored at the south east tip of Eleuthera, Lighthouse Bay.  We took the dinghy for a ride past some beautiful rock islands.  But it seemed a little rough to snorkel there.  We ended up snorkeling a reef just off of the beach.  It felt good to be swimming again.

Dave had signed up for a 2 night radar class online.  We were able to pick it up on his phone, but it cut out once in awhile.  I gave up and went to bed, but he learned a few things.


We were anchored in a good position for the island to block the wind.  But surge came around the rock islands and we rolled side to side all night.  Not good for sleeping.
