another northern front arriving!
With a single day before the next strong northern front arriving, Louise and I took the dinghy out to a nearby reef, and within 40 minutes I found a lovely 3 lb lobster and a two pound red snapper to supplement our dinner menus.
Our immediate neighbours ( Marie-Francoise and Jean-Pierre) picked up their son at Marsh Harbour last night and arrived this morning with another case of Chilean Chardonnay (along with parchment paper) from the big city, so we're good for at least another week!
This evening will be ravioli with a spinach/lobster/potato stuffing enjoyed in the cockpit as the strong (50mph) winds arrive. We're all strapped down with double lines on the dinghy.....
The latest entertainment has been watching other boats going aground as a result of the very low (and high) tides associated with the full moon. Once you put 30,000lbs of boat onto a sandbar, it takes alot of time and effort to hump the sucker back into the water!
Great sunsets, wonderful sunrises, empty beaches..... not too many tourists around at all......wonderful!
Let's hope the mild weather continues in Canada, and the warm weather arrives in the Bahamas.... the locals are all complaining about the very cold winter they have had..... I cannot complain at all!
See you all soon!
