March has arrived
01 March 2010 | Hopetown Harbour
Still Cold! 60F with cold north winds!
We spent a lovely day on the beach, with long walks, and fresh fish for dinner. A rather nice event was opening a fresh coconut I found on the beach. The machete did a great job, and Louise found a recipe for "coconut milk" (Hot water, shredded coconut and honey) which when combined with crushed ice, fresh pineapple juice and rum created a spectacular pina colada! truly wonderful relaxing in the harbour in the sunshine!
The weather looks like it's going to get better in a couple of days, so we'll wave goodbye to Hopetown and start the trip north (or south) in search of adventure and lobsters.
The boat has been performing wonderfully with no real problems and most of the routine maintenance tasks completed.... my job jar is empty... I'll need to find some more things to work on!
Lovely full moon last night.... you could almost read by the moonlight!
Based upon the cheering from the local pub, it sounded like a great hockey night last night....
