    As I wake early today looking over Bimini bay from the back of my boat pondering the early departure to face the early ride home thanks to NOAA and her not so great forecast. Was wanting to leave tomorrow morning but sea building to 6+ and 25 knot winds not my idea of fun crossing the gulfstream so we are going to have a go of it early today and be back in Ft lauderdale by early afternoon before it gets too nautical. Anyway trip ended up great as usual, and this most likely is the last trip of this summer season as the northerly winds are definately starting to blow. Got in 4 trips (22 days in paradise) to the Bahamas this year and enjoyed every one of them. Already planning next years to Abacos and Exumas. But until then I will enjoy these memories.

    And we will be haunting the Abaco down through the Berrys and Exuma throughout next summer.
    Hope we can all meet!
