High Five! Arriving at Bermuda after Four Days at Sea

We sailed about 660 miles from Morehead City, North Carolina, USA. Average speed 7 knots. Because of the constant rocking, during this trip, we didn’t sleep very comfortably. The two cats stopped eating their food (except cat treats and tuna water).

Entering the harbor, it appeared that Bermuda looked similar to Curacao (houses on the island) and somewhat like the Bahamas (clear water and sandy bottom).
