Berry Islands & Bimini
We didn't see a lot of the Berry Islands but what little we saw we didn't like. It is extremely shallow throughout the islands and there aren't many protected anchorages. It took us five attempts to set the anchor on a grassy bottom at Bird Cay. It was very rolly even though there was practically no wind. We decided to leave yesterday morning and travel slowly overnight to Bimini. From here we will cross over to Florida. We arrived at Bimini Sands Marina at 7:45 this morning. The marina looks like it was once nice but has fallen on hard times. We were told that new management will take over in April. We plan to take advantage of a weather window to cross the Gulf Stream tomorrow and head to Marathon, FL.
