We picked up Steve and Maretjie in Nassau who had flown in from South Africa. We stayed at the Harbour Club Marina – which sounds very fancy, is is pretty run down. They did however have a nice pool and were right opposite the shopping centre. We were able to buy all our provisions – including mixes for our new favourite drinks on Time2 – frozen rum punches.  Very evil drinks, packed with high fructose corn syrup ... NOT what the doctor would recommend. On the second day we had a massive rain-storm, and the streets of Nassau were flooded. This was the day Maretjie and I walked to town, it was quite hilarious as we waded through the water next to the cars.

From Nassau we headed north east to Spanish Wells, a settlement on the north side of Eleuthera.  We had visited this very cute fishing town before, but this time had to anchor off Meeks island (shallow draft).  It was no problem to take our big dink across the bay to the town for the day. Wow, what a lot of development since our last visit 6 years ago.  The families that control this island – lots of  Sands and Pinder, have managed to maintain the gorgeous look and feel of the town, but now have a little marina, a good restaurant and even a bar or two. Spanish Wells is the home of the Bahamina Lobster fleet – now off season, so lots of repairs going on at the yards in town. We had a lovely lobster (crayfish) lunch at The Shipyard and then took a walk around town to admire the pretty homes.
