Still blowing hard!
20 December 2009 | New Plymouth, GTC
Sunny and windy- 40mph
Another day spent relaxing while I continue to ignore the instrument installation.
With the wind blowing hard from the NW we cycled over to the south end of the island and had a great walk along Gillam Bay, yet another spectacular white sand beach without a soul in sight.
I managed to knock down two large coconuts from a palm tree (not without falling down several times), so we''ll try to find some coconut rum and prepare some special drinks when Anne-Marie arrives in a couple of days.
Louise spent the day polishing chrome fittings, and attacking the ever present black mold that wants to grow on every available surface. We've been very fortunate with how clean everything is on board here in the Bahamas, but one still needs to be very vigilant about mold in such a humid environment. Floorboards, hinges, walls, cupboards, everything needs a little wax and polish to eliminate the ever present threat. Yes, it's true... Louise is developing a bit of a fetish..... oh well.........
The north west wind is a dry cool wind so our boat is decorated with towels, duvets, sheets, shorts, etc.... even the cushions from the salon are on deck enjoying the sunshine and breeze! I have my long pants on with a sweater, but still barefoot (and fancy free!).
The christmas lights are lovely in the evening, I'll try to take a photo of the boat this evening....
