Waiting for weather windows and watching weather are often cruisers’ busiest past-times. We have been waiting for a good weather opportunity to go lobstering and finally decided we would just do it! The winds were expected to pick up in the afternoon and so we decided, along with Jim on Blue Angel, to head out to a nearby location, to do some lobstering. Luckily, Jim decided to come along or we might have had chicken for dinner! Instead we had six lobster! Jim and Sharon came over for dinner and she brought her great recipe of Bahamian baked mac and cheese. What a great addition to lobster and broccoli slaw. We plan to get more gear and go again soon. We have had a lot of fun fishing and lobstering with our great mentors and friends from Blue Angel.
Dick is working on replacing various gauges which have been going on the blink. Today he is working on the stainless, which frequently needs de-rusting and corrosion block applied. I am studying some info, recipes, and regulations on Florida fishing. Also I am taking a class on pine needle basket-making from a local live aboard with questionable results!
