LEFT: Staniel Cay Christmas Tree Lighting - Paul and Sheryl. Every
December the residents of Staniel Cay have a Christmas Tree Lighting
ceremony at the village church by the ferry dock. Everyone is invited and
there is a dinner on the pier afterwards. Names of loved ones who have
passed on are placed on decorations on the tree in memory. Instead of
an angel at the top, they placed a model of a traditional Bahamian sloop
since a local captain had passed that year.

Next stop for our crew was Nassau where they were all to fly
home from, but not before they got a night or two at the famous
Atlantis Marina Village on Paradise Island. Passing rows of
cruise ships docked in port, we entered this luxurious marina and
resort with an amusement park of " Disneyesque " proportions.
What a contrast to being at sea and in the remote natural beauty
of the Berry Islands! But, we have to admit, the contrast was
part of the appeal and it was really fun to be there. The marina
is mostly home to a host of opulent mega-yachts and gleaming
sport fishing boats, so we all enjoyed the " boat show " aspect of
being there.
We waved farewell to our friends and began a slow journey
back south to the Exuma Islands, our favourite cruising grounds
for the winter months when the winds are consistently stronger
and there are more frequent winter storms called " northers " ,
powerful fronts that roll down from the United States. But, you
can easily hide from them in the numerous protected harbours
and anchorages scattered all over the Bahamas; they're merely
a nuisance. The further south you go, the fewer northers make
it down to you. That's why the Exumas and other island groups

Long Island - Dean's Blue Hole. Dean's Blue Hole is a blue hole (naturally formed sink hole) located in a bay west of Clarence Town on Long
Island and is the world's second deepest with a depth of 202 metres (663 feet).
