16 February 2012 | Blackpoint, Bahamas
We had a very peaceful, quiet night on the seawall at the Decca Station. We could only see the lights from two large power boats out in the distance. Otherwise it was totally dark and we were totally alone. We left before 8:00 this morning, headed to Blackpoint and the Rockside Laundromat. We arrived right about 11:00. Got anchored, pumped up the dinghy, gathered the dirty laundry and dinghied in. The Laundromat was busy, but there were just enough washers for our stuff. We did have to wait for dryers though. I checked our regular email accounts and Facebook while I was there. Ida offers free internet. Nice to be able to check in on everyone. After we folded the laundry, we walked over to Lorraine's Café for a burger and some cracked conch. Visited with Lorraine a bit. She traded Charlie one of her T-shirts for the fish trap he found a week ago. We just need to take it into to her. We say Peymon and ordered two loaves of bread for Saturday morning. Didn't do much else the rest of the day. By the time we made it back to the boat, it was almost 3:00. We put the clothes away. Made up the V-berth for guests and read a bit. Sunny most of the day today. We didn't try to put the sails out, because the wind was basically on our nose the whole way. Nice that it wasn't blowing more than about 10 knots. Temperature wise, it was probably about 75 for the high, but the breeze was a bit cool.
