First Guest Arrives Today

Overcast at 15C, lights winds
Our first visitor arrives today from Nassau, so we've sailed to Marsh Harbour for the rendezvous.
It's been an eventful couple of weeks with a wonderful New Years in HopeTown with friends, more fishing for crayfish, a nice visit to Man-of-War Cay to explore more beaches, and relax in the sunshine.
Our new dinghy finally made it onto the freighter and arrived at Marsh Harbour with no major problems... I'll need to repair a couple of air valves, and then things should be perfect. I was lucky to be able to purchase a dinghy on Ebay sight unseen, ship it across Florida, then onto the Bahamas with all of the tracking, customs, agents, and handling which was involved.
I managed to repair the hotwater heater (Louise is happy) and we're now trying to sell the older dinghy here in the Abacos before venturing further south.
Unfortunately Louise forgot to lock her bicycle onshore before returning to the boat, so it's gone missing. We've placed an advertisement in the local newspaper offering a reward for it's return, but I fear her lovely Dahan folding bike is gone... too bad after all the money/work that spent on replacing the rear wheel last month.
Our new guest (Shaun) will be spending a week with us with the objective of teaching me how to kitesurf... should be lots of fun!
Anyone interested in a great deal on the slightly used dinghy?
All the best!
