Great Harbour Cay then off to ORYC

Oh how time fly's by as we get older, it seems like we just got here and now our season is half way over.
The Girls at Thanksgiving Dinner
We had a wonderful time in the Berry Islands with old friends and new ones too. We had many storms and fronts come in this year so not as much fishing as we would have liked.

Blue Hole
Lauren and Cassidy
While in the Berry's we had lots of fun with new friends on a boat called Ditchd (Clark,Lana and Faith). They were nice enough to host our Thanksgiving dinner and invite us to head off to the Blue Hole for a fun day of exploring. The whole group had a blast.
We played tennis on a clay court and had the opportunity to play with two brothers(Lauren and Cassidy) who were stuck there because of all the storms, on their lobster boat.They were a lot of fun to play with and we got to here some great story's of hunting for lobsters and about their home in Spanish Wells which is east of the Berry Islands.

The marina is looking better and better every year we go back thanks to Hans the marina manager and all his staff.Sam,Kim,Meco and Meco work at the marina so that was really cool to talk and hang with them all.
New Gazebo at GHC
We were able to visit Sara's grave a few times and touch up her stone with some new paint and add a few more conch shells.
One day we went through the mangroves on the west side of the island and came out on the east side called Sharks creek, this was very cool because we have always tried to find the cut but always ended up down the wrong one which you need a high tide to make it all the way.

We lost our dinghy anchor while out fishing in about 25 feet of water and Jon dove trying to find it with no luck then as luck would have it a few days later we were going past the area to get to a beach and there the bobber was floating as to say come and get me. the next day we stopped at a beach to clean some fish and a 4ft black tip shark was close to shore looking for food so when Jon started cleaning the fish the shark was right there to help himself( watch the video).

Noah and Barry
Jon helped our friend Barry one day with an issue he was having on his boat so it gave Jon and him a chance to catch up.Barry brought his daughter Liberty and son Noah over to visit with me. They are getting sooo big and they are both beautiful just like their parents inside and out.

Rainbow Runner
It was a lot of fun and maybe we will stay longer next time but this year we wanted to go see some other cruising family so off to ORYC.
