Pipe Creek, Exumas
We are tucked in to a favorite spot, between Rat Cay and the Mice (nice names!). The glorious, cloud-free blue skies and 70 degree temperatures belie the fact that we are about to be POUNDED with wind (of course, after midnight). The weather that is dumping so much snow on the Mid-Atlantic is making its way all the way here, bringing us wind and lots of it.
We are sitting well to 2 anchors, with the 3rd ready to deploy this afternoon.
Ah weather. In a house you just close the doors and get more firewood ready, maybe inconvenienced by power going out. You (hopefully) don’t have to worry about your house moving or another one crashing into you!
Cruising isn’t all rum drinks and snorkeling.
