A Historic moment!
Still north winds at 40+ kph

A lovely photo by Bill Grimshaw capturing the historic moment (c/w clock) when the new president arrives!

The one that didn't get away!
Still blowing hard!

A lovely photo of Ginny holding Bill's prize fish!

Not bad for a rookie!

With the wind still howling, we'll spend the day wandering about town, and watching Obama become the President.

Louise finally found her homemade granola.... it took her a month of searching throughout the boat and she found it in a quaker oat tin under the sofa (after giving up looking and deciding to cook quaker oats!)...........so it goes..........

Big winds and rain from the north! Happy to be safe in a great harbour!

We had a lovely lunch (thank you Bill!) and watched the new president ceremony with lots of locals in the local restaurant. I really liked the venue and Bill should have some great photos!

We learned that the fish Bill caught is a mutton snapper and is considered one of the very best eating fish in the Bahamas!

Fresh cream from the grocery store, eggs may be available tomorrow.

Relaxing in the sunshine
Big winds!
01/20/2009, GTC, Bahamas

With the forecast calling for 50+kph winds, we spent the day scrapping the boat, and visiting one of the local museums.

The strong winds started at noon, and by nightfall, the sky blackened, and we had lots of lightening/thunder/rain.

We enjoyed a quiet game of Rummikub with Louise's new rum cake ..... fantastic!

Bill was out trolling in the dinghy and managed to catch a wonderful 4lb snapper... I'll post a photo when we download it off his camera.
It will be dinner tonight, after we spend this afternoon watching the "big show" in Washington at a local restaurant/bar/bakery called the Wrecking Tree.
