Here comes the sun....

01 May 2012 | Georgetown, Exumas, Bahamas
Lisa-sunny and warm
Today is a beautiful sunny day!! We headed in to town to get some laundry done, buy groceries and recon the marina where we needed to pull up to get water. After all our errands were done we motored across the harbor to Stocking Island. This is where all the cruising boats hang out. There are still a good number of boats – like 40-50. We are hearing that only a week or so ago there were more like 200 and in the highest part of the season there are 400 +. A lot of folks like it here and just stay for the whole season. What’s not to like about beautiful water, white sand beaches and lots of good company? We really needed in interact with some people as it gets a bit lonely sometimes.
One of the stories of Georgetown is that they call it “chicken harbour”. If you are heading south, this is the last place in the Bahamas before you hit the big bad ocean. Rumor has it many folks venture out, don’t like it and just come back. Now days I think this has become the destination for many with no intention of every going further south.

Pic is of me getting my hair "blow dried"-check out the water in the background!

These were taken when we bought her in 2006. The biggest interior change was removing the top bunk in the walkthrough (Wyatt's room) and making it a storage area. Yes - this boat has a TUB!
