LFB had a few weeks between scheduled trips so I decided to take advantage of its presence in the Bahamas.  I flew over to Marsh Harbour to meet the boat and the captain and spend a week cruising around the islands and doing some scuba diving.  As the plane came into the airport at Marsh Harbour it was pretty clear where the name came from.

I met the boat at Town Marina and we did a little provisioning, buying seafood including a large bag of very large stone crab claws.  They would serve us well for the trip.   Early the next morning we headed out to find some deserted anchorages where we could look at fish, do some diving and watch some great sunsets.

First night on the hook the weather was shifting so we pulled into a little cove that normally gets little attention.   Sat in the pilot house after dark and watched a great light show as the thunderstorms blew through.

We did occasionally have some company . . .

A little steak, a little lobster, a little green stuff, something cold to drink on the flybridge.  Life is good. . .

Weather was great, water was pretty calm and comfortable at 81 degrees.  LFB performed flawlessly the entire week.  Moving during the day we had wonderful conditions and at night had those sunsets you read about.

When not in the water I did a lot of reading (can’t imagine a trip without my kindle), listened to music and watched a bunch of DVD’s, mostly old movies and concert videos.   But the views outside were too nice to miss. . .

All too soon it was time for me to head back to the mainland and get back to work.   Flying out of Marsh Harbour I looked down and saw LFB safely tied up awaiting its next adventure.
