We left Bimini at dawn and motored down to the Cat and Gun Cay (islands) and cut between them and entered the Bahama Bank. The Bank is a huge area of shallow water we cross before we get to the “The Tongue of the Ocean”. The Tongue is one of the deepest areas in this part of the sea. We motored because the wind was right on our nose and we couldn’t sail. The area is beautiful like a desert under the Ocean. Most of it was under 10ft deep. We got close to the North West Channel Marker and anchored for the night. Seems weird to anchor with 360 degrees of horizon but it is done all the time. When we woke up we had a few boats which had put down for the night on the horizon. Tomorrow we will make Nassau with a 50 mile trip.
