So almost two months have passed since our last update. Allow me to assure my dear readers that we are not in fact, dead, arrested, ship wrecked or otherwise damaged in any way, shape or form.
We've been keeping the updates on hold while we navigated through about a metric shit-ton of Bahamian immigration red tape. I had reason to believe that the local immigration administrator may have been monitoring our blog for insights into the local cruising psyche and so until I got my new passport back from the U.S. Embassy in Nassau, we had to go dark.
Now that we have all the right stamps, forms, voodoo dolls and personal blessings from the necessary, self important officials that make up our somewhat corrupt and definitely inept local island government, we can once again resume our regularly scheduled blogging activities. I have a number of updates to post, so please check back regularly and I’ll bring you up to speed on life aboard Dream Catcher.
Oh yeah, I want to say thanks for the two hundred and forty four emails we got requesting an update on our status. I guess maybe more than one person is reading along after all. Kick ass ! More to follow, end of line …
PS – Georgetown-bound cruisers may want to consider checking in and filing for immigration extensions somewhere other than in Georgetown proper. Long Island has a couple of options as does, Cat Island, Nassau, Mayaguana, Bimini, Freeport and several more in the Abacos. If you do need immigrations services on Great Exuma, consider renting a car and heading out to the airport. Just my two cents worth….
