Bimini 2002 Pictures

Bimini was our first landfall in the Bahamas and our first foreign port of entry.  Some of the photos below show the beautiful color of the water and the landscape.  It doesn't really show how tricky the entrance is though.  You proceed way south of Alicetown and then cut through this narrow cut in the sandbar then turn north and parallel the same sandbar and the shoreline.

You can see the range markers on the shore that ID the cut.
