Alive and Well!
sunny and cooler... lovely weather
01/12/2010, Hopetown Harbour

A busy week!

We sailed over to Marsh Harbour to pick up our friends Ian and Linda (from Victoria) and dropped off Anne-Marie at the airport the following day.

A little bit of shopping and then a screaming ride downwind back to Hopetown with 7.8 knots with maybe half the genoa up only.

Safe and sound in Hopetown, waiting out the cold front.... record low temperatures everywhere.

Fun on the beach and wonderful walks!

Hope everyone is surviving the winter!


Very Cool.. 60F with risk of frost in Miami

Yet another interesting experience....

I have noticed an increasing tenderness in my teeth over the past four weeks, so decided a couple of days ago to book an appointment with a dentist in Marsh Harbour to have a look.

I took the water taxi this morning at 8am, but not before losing 1/2 of a rear molar last night....

I spent three hours having a root canal on my recently install new gold crown (which is now in my pocket), with another three or four visits planned over the coming weeks to complete the necessary work.... happy I am in relative civilization....

My jaw now hurts more than my teeth thanks to opening my mouth so wide for so long....

Hope things warm up soon!

I made it home and I'm still alive!
Around the Whale!
Blowing from the west, with more to follow..
01/04/2010, Hopetown Harbour

Our late evening entertaining some neighbours was followed by an early breakfast, stow all the loose stuff, retrieve bicycles, and make an early departure (8:15am) out of Black Sound....

The strong west winds were happy to blow us south-west at 7.5 knots around Whale Cay (6-8 foot waves) and then back inside to be protected from the ocean rollers, and a quick southern sail to arrive in Hopetown by noon.

Anne-Marie is delighted to have "sailed the whale" and is looking forward to exploring a new and exciting place.

After a well deserved lunch at the Harbour's Edge restaurant (c/w internet) Louise and AM are off to the beach to search for sea glass, while I get to play on the internet.

The weather is quite cool and lots of folks are complaining about the 12C weather and cold winds from Canada. We're wearing our fleeces, scarves,and the local Bahamians are wearing woolen hats.... time to find my socks!

The weather forecast looks cools and windy for the rest of the week, so we'll relax and stay put for the rest of the week.

Have fun!

Ouch is right! We hope you are through your dental work soon! We are off to Sante Fe on Wednesday to celebrate Barb's birthday and ski in Taos. It will definitely be warmer than it is here. Take care you two!
