Waiting for Weather
15 April 2012 | Black Point, Great Exuma Island
Arrived here Friday the 13th, we are just great with dates! Beat the weather in, barely. Blowing 20-25 knots and seas outside are big. Will be here until Wednesday, when the forecast calls for easing wind. Black Point is a very nice place to lay up, a little settlement of a few hundred people. (click on location) Very friendly people, and the kids love Leo. Many of the island residents have a surname of Rolle, and the Bahamas is the birthplace of the actress Esther Rolle. We had to leave Leo at home for dinner, which was a unanimous choice of grouper for all three of us. Yum. Kalik is the beer choice in the Bahamas, and it's really pretty good.
Too windy to take the dinghy into town this evening, we will conjure up a canned gastronomic delight instead. In the Islands, it's all good.
