Visitors & Visiting
13 February 2011 | Yacht Haven Marina, Nassau, Bahams
I wrote yesterday’s blog while Bud was starting supper because nothing else usually happens at that point. We eat and read and go to bed. I had just finished up when I thought I heard someone on the dock. Then I heard “Earendil”. I opened the companionway and stuck my head out and there on the dock were Jon and Arline and their dogs, Sarah and Blue! I was so excited. We had quick hugs and then they were aboard.
We insisted they stay for supper. They have already left the Exumas heading back to Florida. I’m so sorry we never caught up to them there, but am so glad they found us here! They are in a marina just down the way from us waiting out the same front. Now I’m doubly glad we didn’t try to go to Allan Cay, we would have missed them!
We had a great dinner and a great visit. They filled us in on all the places they went, where to go and where not to go. We are going to get together on their boat for lunch today. More later...
Well, we had a very, very long lunch. And we finally got to have that drink in their cockpit. Arline was craving pizza and there is a Dominoes right across the street from the marina they’re in, so they treated us to pizza. We had another great visit, this time trading stories, because we’ve actually had enough experience now that we have a few stories of our own.
They also told us about the places they’ve been in the Exumas that we should visit, places we should avoid, and places they heard about but didn’t get to. They have to be back in New York by the beginning of April, so we won’t see them again this season.
Any of our friends at TYC who go to the east end of Ontario, if you happen to go into Little Sodus Bay, stop by Fairpoint Marina and give Jon and Arline a hello from us.
