We spent two long weeks at Royal Island because of some nasty weather that came through. The wind was blowing 18+ knots with squalls coming through every now and then. Luckily, the Royal Island anchorage has all-around protection (link to a top view of the anchorage) so we were sitting pretty inside the island’s harbor. We spent A LOT of time on the boat and often found ourselves going a little cuckoo. This usually entails alot of odd singing and dancing for exercise. Speaking of exercise, we did actually start exercising on deck too. Sailboats are surprisingly great places to get creative for exercises. This was our turning point in the trip…once we left Royal Island we were officially heading back to Florida, so during our stay here we had to decide which route we’d be taking back. Good thing we had some time!
We spent one of the days hiking the island. There were some roads and stuff because there were plans to build a golf course/resort but they were put on hold, as are many of these endeavors in the Bahamas.
Finally, leaving Royal Island…though I can’t complain too much about our stay!
