Sunday 15 April 2018 -- Relaxing DAY—So FAR
This has been a sort of relaxing day, so far… Although this morning during the Single Side Band (radio) check in (High Freq. Radio), s/v MINX mentioned during the “announcements” that a new program had been initiated by the US Government (namely Homeland Security)… under the Small Vessel Reporting System… (SVRS- or local boaters option program)…. SO I took notes, and downloaded the new APP for phones…. (new APP “CBP Roam”) ……………. Wow… It took a while to download; mostly because of Donnie’s WIFI here… (WEAK)….
Anyway…once downloaded; I started to enter data…. WOW…! Typical Gov’t data base…. 14 types of security levels to get into it… And then…. Probably the entire cruising community was ON the SITE… So about ¾ of the way through IT CRASHED…. SO……… I’ll try again tonight, when most cruisers are asleep.
Could be an interesting way to check back into the USA though…. ONCE your data is entered… all you do is dial up and have a VIDeo CHAT with Customs, and Border Patrol… no boarding, no taxi trips to airports, etc.
Could be GOOD!!!
SO………………… I haven’t really written anything for a blog in about a week or so…. WE’ve been busy with the end of the trip STUFF… namely doing the things we’ve wanted to to… and never made the time.
Like: 1.) The dinghy trip to WHITE Sound, here in Green Turtle Cay; We’d never been in White sound, where the BLUFF house, Green Turtle Club, and dive shop are located. SO WE (SEEKER; Dalmatian; Second Wind; and AB) all took our respective dinghies out the channel, around the point, and into White Sound. NICE trip (a little bouncy, but not too wet). NICE place…. I guess the “HOLDING” isn’t that great IF you’re anchored there…. But a mooring would be good.
We dodged some rain storms; visited the Green Turtle Club (Dollar Bar, and lounge) and then had lunch at the Tranquil Turtle bar…over on the Sea of Abacos side of the island. GREAT !!! ON the trip back to the boats we stopped midway, and walked to the OCEAN side beaches…. For Beach TIME…. Then stopped again on the way back to the dinghies for RUM Drinks…. Two (2) “Bahama mamas”, or “Goombay smashes” for $10 (happy hour at the Leeward Yacht club).
On Friday Last, we again attended the “cruisers NITE” at the Plymouth Liquor store, and CAFÉ. Buy a bottle, and they keep your glass wine glass topped up all night (well, until your bottle runs empty)…
ON Thursday…. What ???? Project DAY…. Followed by a music night… Normally when you play for a group, you tend to play your “best stuff”…. So I told Earl, Kathy and some others that we’d make a night of playing “everything else”…. Music you’re never heard at least ME play before…. So that’s what we did. Interesting, and NICE!!!
OK…. There’s probably a lot more that I’m leaving OUT, but we’ll close this NOW, and POST.
