Heading for the Gulf Stream

Well, we received our email from weather guru, Chris Parker. We have a window to cross the Gulf Stream and make it to the Bahamas sometime Saturday or Sunday. The conditions won’t be ideal but should be less than “gnarly”.  We are making our last minute preparations and plan to leave within the hour. I admit that I am nervous. I am not looking forward to the 5-6 foot seas, especially if they are on the beam. 
Before we leave I just want to mention how much we like Brunswick and Brunswick Landing Marina. The people here are so nice and the marina is focused on providing a good experience for cruisers. The city reminds us of our home, Cambridge, MD. Once a prosperous city with a lot of natural beauty. It fell on hard times but seems to be on the upswing. Great restaurants, a nice little grocery store and a well-stocked old fashioned hardware store are an easy walk from the marina. Yesterday we walked into town to eat lunch at Indigo Coastal Shanty. The food was delicious. I imagine we will be back.
