From Guana back to Marsh

We headed back to Nippers on April 10, as I was determined to try their nachos, which I’d seen on Facebook. (Listen, when tortilla chips are like $15 a bag, after several months, you seriously crave nachos. ๐Ÿ™‚ )

They did not disappoint.

After we stuffed ourselves on corn chips and cheese, we headed back to the boat and pulled up the anchor. We planned to anchor for the night at John Cash Point, outside Marsh Harbour, where we were hoping to scope out some snorkeling spots, but the wind was picking up, and the angle was just not great to hang out there, so we decided to head into the outside anchorage at Marsh Harbour instead.

We dropped anchor, then decided we had ended up too close to another boat so we’d pull up and move over a bit. While we were moving the boat, we managed to ground ourselves on an uncharted coral head. No bueno. We were stuck, and the tide was falling, so we had to figure a plan out quickly in order to not soon be high and dry. Patrick jumped in with a snorkel to confirm what was going on for sure, and he decided that if we put the jib out to port, we’d heel the boat over enough to drift off. So we did, and it worked. Whew! We re-anchored with no drama, and decided that was enough excitement for us for one day, as the wind had climbed into the 20s. No real damage done, other than to our pride. Always learning something during this sailing life!
