Feb 5, 2018 – Spanish Wells

Since we were the only boat in this wonderful harbour we lingered the whole  morning before leaving just after noon for the one hour trip to Spanish Wells. Gorgeous sunny day and got distracted talking on the radio with the marina as entered the harbour entrance. Got a bottom touching bump as a wake up !! Tied up at the Yacht Haven but as they have fixed docks it became a struggle to get ashore at low tide.

As we were enjoying a post docking beer, Brad Strawbridge from KYC arrived. He had driven up from his home near Hatchet Harbour, taken the ferry and then rented a golf cart to get to us. We all jumped in the cart and Brad gave us a great tour of Spanish Wells. Along the way we were able to pick up groceries and liquor to replenish our supplies.

Before dinner we walked around the coast of the town starting with the very, very long working docks complete with a marine railway for larger vessels. We ended up at the open beach at low tide near sunset and had a beautiful stroll across rippled sands to the water’s edge.
