Green Turtle to Marsh Harbour - 2017
|Maggie took this picture of my seventieth birthday celebration at|
Pineapples Bar & Grill on Green Turtle Cay. From left to
right, there's Ken, me, Nancy, Marion, and Jonathan.
|I captured this image of two beached fishing boats as we |
walked into New Plymouth for lunch.
|The heavy green line is Whale Cay Passage. The little yellow areas |
with black dots are reefs. Green Turtle Cay is off the chart
on the upper left and Marsh Harbor is off the chart
on the lower right. The depths shown
on this chart are in meters.
|We could not have picked better conditions to transit Whale Cay |
Passage--the wind was light and the ocean was calm.
The above photo is of the northeast end of
Whale Cay from the ocean side.
|As we motored from Loggerhead Channel to Marsh Harbour, we couldn't |
stop gawking at the beautiful turquoise water in every direction.
The water depth in this area was between 10
and 14 feet at about mid-tide.
|Marsh Harbour, located on Great Abaco, is a well protected |
anchorage with great holding. It's no wonder that a
town was established around this natural harbor.
|We took this photograph as we entered Marsh Harbour from the Sea |
of Abaco. There were two to three dozen other boats
anchored in the harbor when we arrived.
|This photograph was taken looking at the anchorage area |
as the sun was setting behind us.
|This was our first sunset in Marsh Harbour.|
