Kona at Gun Cay
Anchored out at Gun Cay, our last night in the Bahamas. Doesn't Kona look bummed?!?!
It is with mixed emotions that I write this blog. On one hand, we are bummed to leave the islands. We have truly loved this life, living on the boat and sailing throughout the Bahamas and the Caribbean. We have certainly seen some amazing things and met some wonderful people along the way, and every day is an adventure.

But it certainly is good to be back in the States.
