Happy New Year!
Sunny and windy - 50kmph
01/01/2010, New Plymouth, GTC

Happy New Year to everyone!

We spent a lovely evening on the beach watching the full moon rise over the Atlantic with a large fire pit keeping us warm and bug-free, with 10-12 other sailors enjoying the event. We celebrated the new year at 8pm due to the overall exhaustion of everyone.

A beautiful new day with loads of sunshine, we plan on enjoying Junkanoo, purchasing some last minute things tomorrow morning, and then heading south to Great Guana Cay, and afterwards Hopetown, if the weather permits.

We are all very fortunate to be alive and enjoying our voyage on our beautiful blue ball (the planet earth) and I have made some ambitious New Year resolutions to try to ensure that it stays beautiful....

Here for a short time, dead for a long time.

getting ready for New Years
Overcast and cool - 70F
12/30/2009, GTC

Today we'll spend the morning gathering coconuts and shells on Gillam Beach and then cycle up to the Green Turtle Club (thanks to the loan of a bicycle from Bill and Ruthe) were we'll enjoy a lovely lunch on the patio by the water.

We are hoping that the winds decline next week so we can sail around the whale and continue our voyage south to Hopetown and make our return to Marsh Harbour. The present sea state is very rough so we'll need to wait at least a couple of days for things to settle down.

I hope everyone enjoys the all new and improved 2010!

Hi Glen, Louise and AM,

Checked the 'cool' temperature in Fahrenheit here in the great white North and according to the weather folks it 'feels like' 1 degree F. My reckoning is it feels ghastly cold! Have a wonderful New Year. The photos are fabulous.

Cheers,
Brenda, Skip, Ali and Andrew

We hiding in Black Sound, enjoying the mooring, and wandering about Green Turtle Cay introducing Anne-Marie to the restaurants, bars, beaches, and friends.....

One of our cruiser neighbours past us while we were sailing north last week and took a picture of Graynorth under sail.... they were surprised when we arrived back in GTC and immediately emailed the photo...

So it goes...
