Spanish Cay

  It was a nice motor sail from Great Sale anchorage to Spanish Cay.We had heard of extensive hurricane Irene damage here but they have been very busy and have all but one row of docks with power and water.The customs/immigration officer here is so friendly and efficient.We were checked in and had our 180 day cruising and fishing permit in no time.
After checking in I bought a loaf of fresh Bahamian bread at the office and found out that the New Years Eve party here features the Barefoot Man live and fireworks and all day events. Looks like we might go to Green Turtle for a couple days and head right back here. I love the Barefoot Man,reminds me of a Pat Dailey concert at Put In Bay back home.
Today is laundry day and Mike will refill the diesel and wash salt off the boat, it is so encrusted on the topsides that it looked like ice crystals at night. We took many waves over the top during the early hours of crossing over. I say that for me crossing over is like childbirth,you say it wasn`t so bad after you have slept a few nights.
