CSY-44 Antigua - Hull 001

WINDY today... storm coming... Lazy DAY

19 April 2019

Friday – WINDY - but lots of sun in AM…. 19 APR 2019
Turned wind generator OFF last night, so we could get some sleep…. But turned it back on this AM… brought batteries up in the last few hours… Wow… “earning its KEEP today”…. Wow…
Rains aren’t really supposed to hit here until tomorrow… WEE hours So today, just a lot of wind…
Last night Kathy, Earl, Susan and I took Dave Wright out for dinner, and ice cream (dinner at the dock and dine, and ice cream up by the Hibiscus Rest. )
NICE… it’s was Dave’s last night on island…. Before he takes flights to Florida, and then New England (MA).
Fun evening…
WEATHER… as I said above… Windy… storm coming off the USA mainland will get to us, here in the Abacos later today….(and rains in the wee hours of Saturday….)..
BUT……………… the good news (sort of)… is that after all this wind, and rain… there looks to be a weather window forming, for WEST Bound travel (back to the USA)… Perhaps mid-week… next week… SO… We have to “be ready”…. To MOVE…
Today, (so far) seems like such a “lazy day”…. As Earl says “a supreme lack of urgency”….
We’ve been listening to the news, and comments about the “report”… OF course…. That will be PRIME news item for weeks, I think…. PLUS the storms in the central USA….
The strange thing about this area of the Abacos… (namely MOW cay)…. We can receive CBS TV (on over the air broadcast)… from either MARSH Harbor, or HOPETOWN…. (don’t know which… ). We could NOT do that at Green Turtle… AT green turtle we had to relay on the BTC (flow-to-go) TV on Susan’s iPhone.
Weird but TRUE.
OK…. On with this lazy day….. I’m also “following” BILL S, and PETE trying to long distance ‘trouble shoot a voltage / alternator problem on Pete and Bunny’s new vessel.
More later.

BTW -- if picture loads.. that's DAVE W. playing the 100 year old mandolin; he's wearing a pink shirt.
