30 April 2010 | Coral Harbour, Ba
A little wrap up for the week. We got here on Monday, sailing through a terrible cold front a with lots of wind and large seas. Beckie left on Tuesday and here it is Friday. I have the boat cleaned up, the dinghy stored away and the boat ready for the 6-7 day offshore passage to the Chesapeake. Filters, oil, pickled water maker ... every thing ready to go.
I was invited for cocktails this evening by the people who own the dock I am rafted up to (3 deep). They are the SSCA station hosts who live here in Coral Harbor. Nick and Carolyn do the weather net for the Bahamas every morning on VHF 72 as well as on SSB radio. They also volunteer with the BASARA
Apparently across the canal is a big pink house that was bought by Anna Nicole Smith a few weeks before she died in Fla. As you can see in the picture there was a large concrete block privacy wall built around the swimming pool (you'd have to get pretty high up to see over that wall) that was never completed. The house is vacant right now... So that is the gossip from here.
I 'll be home this weekend for a few weeks.......
