It was a cool, beautiful morning out with a good breeze. Made sausage and eggs and had some more of that delicious Bimini bread with it and we split a banana and orange. After breakfast we walked into Alice Town and out to the tip of the island where we'd come in at, to the cemetery and out to the wreck. I don't know how long it's been there, but it's pretty well mostly breaking apart. I couldn't imagine being the house in front of it watching it crash up onto the shore. Just think, for the next 100 years or so, they have a wonderful view of a rusting hulk sitting in front of their beach view and actually on their beach.
I was going to pick up another loaf of bread for when we leave tomorrow but the bread lady wasn't there today. When we got back to the boat I saw Denny standing out on the dock near his boat so we went over to say hi. They're going back towards Bimini Bay Resort with another couple (up the river) and wanted to know if we wanted to come along too but we need to get diesel before we can take off tomorrow. They plan on heading out tomorrow too so maybe we can buddy with them out until they head north. They're going to the Berry's and then toward the Abacos but we're both heading toward North Rock and Mackie Shoals? Another front is supposed to be coming in Thursday so we need to be tucked in off the bank by then. Rick (an instructor) was talking about going over to the End of the World Bar this evening so we might head over there too. It sounds intriguing.
Well we never made it to the Bar, we ended up over near the pool for sundowners with Denny and Brigid and Layne and Joan from the Shahadaroba (the motor boat 2 boats down from us on our dock). All the French speaking Quebec boats were by the pool also. After we got back to the boat I couldn't believe how cold I'd gotten. Made ham sandwiches with the last of the Bimini bread and now its time for some shuteye.
