…440 Sea Star, 35 Island Spirit, 380 Gotta Jibboo…

Thank you to Dan and Kathy on IP 440 Sea Star, who lead us and Karin and Carl of IP 380 Gotta Jibboo from Little Farmers Key south around Musha Cay and into Rudder Cut Cay to a private pond through a deep cut. Dan and Kathy have been here before and we all went there to ride out an approaching front. While there for three days, we swam (finally!) and cleaned the water line. Then we dinghy-explored the various islands in the southern Exumas chain. Six of these islands are owned by David Copperfield and they are all marked no trespassing, so we could not go ashore. One night we had a popcorn and movie night aboard 440 Sea Star with terrific homemade popcorn and delicious snacks. We watched a documentary from Mystic Seaport Museum “The Voyage of The Peking” and Nicholas Cage in “The Family Man.” The second night we had a casual dinner aboard Island Spirit with Radeen’s Blue Water Chicken Salad, Kathy’s yummy carrot salad, appetizers and candies from Karin and a pumpkin cheesecake.

Life aboard is so calm, simple and peaceful. Imagine, a few TV broadcasts stations, if any, very limited internet, just good friends, good food, beautiful beaches, crystal clear water, swimming, reading, star watching and reflecting. We are so grateful for this life!

We are also grateful for the willingness of friends like Dan and Kathy to share what they know with other cruisers. We look forward to seeing Sea Star and Gotta Jibboo somewhere soon!
