Wind, wind and more wind!
02 February 2013 | Volleyball Beach, George Town
Friday, Saturday, February 1st -2nd - This morning began with no wind at all...finally! Ron made a trip to town for water since it is so calm. In the afternoon I attended another basket making class. I've managed to finish up my one small round basket. While I was there the wind began to howl and the sky turned black. We thought it was just a squall passing through but it lasted all afternoon, all night and through most of Saturday. Several boats dragged anchor and a few had their dinghies come untied. There was only a little rain, but we spent most of Saturday on the boat playing cards and reading.
Some people come to George Town and stay here for the entire winter. We've met several people who have spent every winter here for the past eight to ten years. We won't be doing that. It's quite far to town by dinghy and it seems to always be rough - so you get soaked either going or coming back. There are constant organized games and events, but if you aren't into that...and we aren't...so it's just not for us. We will head out during the next weather window, hopefully next Tuesday or Wednesday and spend some time in Warderick Wells, the Land and Sea Park on our way back towards the more northern Bahamas.
