On Thursday morning we explored the Atlantis Hotel and Casino complex. It was somewhat odd to be wandering in a resort hotel with all the shops and restaurants and hotel guests after living attached to a mooring ball. There is an amazing aquarium in the casino with 100’s of fish. The photo of the aquarium looks like a mural.
There was also a wonderful swimming pool a few steps away.
We called Nassau Harbor Control and asked permission to cross the harbor from Atlantis Marina to the Nassau Harbor Hotel Marina. Permission granted.
We fueled up and moved to our slip. I checked it ahead of time. It as all the way in towards the shore. I mentioned to the dockmaster that we draw 3.5 feet and the water looks very thin. He said “no worries mon, you will have at least 1 foot extra under your boat.
Dale started washing the inches of baked on salt off our boat. Godfrey stopped by and offered to wash the boat inside and out for $100. Deal. He did a very good job. Godfrey mentioned he is 54 years old and has 9 children and 4 grandchildren.
On Friday we bid farewell to Nassau and cruised 94 miles across the Northeast Providence Channel to Little Harbour in the Abacos. Little Harbour is best known for Pete’s Pub a renown bar and eatery. Stories will flow from tonight’s adventure ashore. We will cruise the Abacos for 7 – 10 days before heading back to Florida. The wind will shift north on Sunday so we need to decide where we want sit out the weather for a few days.
Bonus photo – We are the red triangle in Nassau and are in Great Abaco now.
