Lots of sailing north and south

04 February 2010 | Hopetown Harbour
another northern front arriving!
Bruce and Linda arrived on schedule without problems, so we spent a short day in HopeTown and then started south with the wind on the stern.... a couple of days anchored out, and then a visit to Little Harbour to celebrate my birthday...

Very quiet with almost no-one around..... Pete's Pub was empty, and the foundry looks abandoned.....

With the wind swinging to the south, we sailed back north and into Marsh Harbour to replenish our cupboards ( Louise has run out of garlic... shocking!).

We sailed back to HopeTown with another northern front at 20 knots with just a small foresail raised, and arrived at high tide, back to our mooring after 6 days away.

Fresh fish from a local resident at the dock, a lobster/artichoke dip for lunch, and fresh pasta planned for dinner. Laundry done, dinghy refueled, snorkelling planned for this afternoon....

It's taken a week for our guests to relax, but I suspect they'll have a great week here in HopeTown before their overnight stay in Nassau before flying home to Toronto.

My wonderful birthday present was the news that our son, Marc-Andre, has won the grand prize at the Feel Good Filmfest in Toronto ($100,000) for his short film entitled "Nuit Blanche". After the thousands of hours of work, it is great to see him so successful.... he's now back in NYC working on another contract...... so it goes.....

We've booked our return flights for April 8th, so we're already past the half way mark.....

Hot and sunny...... not a worry in the world!
