It didn’t take Mark long to settle into the Bahamas. We anchored Rode Trip between Big Majors Spot and Little Majors Spot so that we’d be snuggled for the next front. Yes, the weather knew we had a new arrival and scheduled wind accordingly. Mark jumped right into the water and soon found his own treasures.
