This past month we traveled from Glass Window Eleuthera Bahamas
to George Town Exuma and back a little up to Emerald Bay Exuma (started heading North). We did spent one day at Cape Eleuthera Marina for fuel/water/laundry and the rest at anchor
. We experienced at least 2 gales and have had to hide from weather
We dined out a few times, once at a real restaurant and couple of times at beach type restaurant.
Entertainment expenses were for some Kindle books
, and a couple weeks’ worth of Bahamas WiFi
that didn’t work
well at anchor
in George Town (don’t understand the attraction people have for George Town).
We had two good stops for provisioning
and did restocking at them (Black Sound and George Town).
I still use my credit card, but in Georgetown
the bank ATM was easy to use so took a lot of cash out as the store adds 5% to your bill to use a credit card. Since people wanted to “fix” the cost of using my credit card last month this month I included the cash back I got from last month to this month’s credit card and ATM fees
During one of the gales our head
sail unrolled a little and it took me hours to “fix” due to the dark and conditions. This resulted in it beating itself and the rigging
tearing out the stitching for the UV cover. That was much more sewing than we able to do so that was a sail repair at this little shack place in George Town.
I think water
costs are low by $30 or so because the marina charged based on 100 gal instead of 1 gal, but it is what I paid
The total was $2,387.41 as follows:
, soda, alcohol, clothing
, sundries - $ 1,158.10
- $ 220.00
(diesel, gas, propane) - $ 232.67
Dining out - $ 379.15
Entertainment - $ 58.96

- $ -1.09
Marina - $ 88.41
