Mayaguana to Rum Cay

We finally left the Caicos on Saturday, March 10th and headed to Mayaguana. It's the first island in the Bahamas when your traveling west. We checked in and stayed there until the weather cleared today. We are now enroute to Rum Cay, we should arrive there tomorrow (Saturday) before noon. We have some settled weather today and tomorrow early, but another cold front will pass us up tomorrow around noon, and behind that will be another week of very heavy winds and high seas. We chose Rum Cay because it looks to have good protection from the ENE & NE winds that should be hitting us and it should be a nice little island to check out, beaches, ruins and a few little restaurants.

The settlement of Abraham's Bay, Mayaguana, where we checked into the Bahamas is a small, quaint town. The Settlement's Administrator was in a small office about a 1/2 mile down the road from the beach. He was the Administrator, the Customs & Immigration officer, and we think the postmaster and a few other things too. The residents there were very friendly!!

Rum Cay is a bit smaller and has one Settlement called Port Nelson, they do have a Marina here so we may get fuel and some much needed laundry done. There are only 50-60 people on this island. After Rum Cay, we will do a day sail over to Conception Island.

Hope you all are doing good, we'll update the blog with pictures when we have an internet connection....Cheers Mike and Kim
