Fall and winter in the Bahamas can mean cold fronts. Now we don’t mind some, but anything pushing thirty knots and we want to find a place to hide.
There are several marina’s in the Exumas that offer 360 degree protection. Highbourne Cay, Compass Cay and Cave Cay are all good places to hide.
This photo was taken last year by a friend from the top of his mast.
You can see Mattina in the bottom left corner. You can also see how many other boats chose to hide with us.
The thing about Compass is it’s easy to keep busy. Walking, swimming, kayaking in the mangroves and even hiking to the bubbles baths for a splash in the surf entertain us.
Sometimes we hunker down at anchor and wait out a cold front. This can get a little boring or very exciting depending on what the weather does. Really all we care about is that we’re safe
Thanks for reading . . .

WOW! I hope that friend wasn’t at the top of that pole holding the camera. Yikes!!! Even a mounted camera wouldn’t have a fun ride in bad weather.
He was. Crazy guy climbed up and then was nice enough to share the photo with us. Considering how windy it was, I’m amazed, but I guess some people need the adrenaline rush more than others.
Amazing photo. Glad to hear you have somewhere cosy to hide away from the wind.
We like to hide. Not point in riding out bad weather if we don’t have to.
Wow. Crazy photo. Stay warm and safe!
Hi Nancy, Thanks for the good wishes. One more storm to go and then I think the weather should clear for a bit. On the good side, the rain does wash the boat.
