January 15, 2010... So This is Eleuthera!
Finally, into Alabaster Bay. We chose this place because it is right next to Governor's Harbor airport where Jay needs to fly out of in the morning.
Once anchored, we dinghyed over to Cocodimama's to ask if it is ok to bring the dinghy up there, get a table for dinner tonight, and find out about walking to airport. We found the road, walked to GHB, and asked the Bahamas Air representative about tomorrow morning's flight. The time had already changed once since making the reservation in early December, and we didn't want Jay to miss the flight because we have been out of internet and cell phone range. She told Jay to be there at 6:45am because even though the flight is scheduled for 8:10am, it may leave early!!! OK, so that means a 5:30am wake up and hitting the beach at 6:00am.
Back from the airport, we stopped at Cocodimama's for a drink on the balcony. It overlooked the Bay and our boat! What a beautiful view. The sun came out and we felt like we were finally in the Bahamas, as we were meant to experience them. The last thing on Jay's agenda for the day was to climb the mast and take some pictures. Up he went in the bosuns chair and we have the pictures. Too bad we didn't think fast enough and get some photos of him up the mast. We ended our evening over our first dinner ashore since having Jay aboard. Cocodimama's was just fabulous. We are already talking about going back sometime.
