New Year's Dinner
02 January 2017
We actually made it to midnight on New Year's Eve! We had a great little potluck dinner on Pirate Beach with the crews of 4 other boats. We elected to have an unofficial countdown at 10 pm. since some people wanted to head back to their boats. As we were preparing to leave the beach two more boat loads of people arrived so we decided to stay and join them around the bonfire. It was quite an eclectic group, 2 girls from South Africa, a Canadian from Argentina, a couple of guys from Vancouver and a Croatian. We were serenaded by Pierre Jasmin playing some blues on his mouth organ as we welcomed in 2017. It was truly a memorable New Years Eve as we all marvelled at the brilliant stars overheard and the fireworks display at Staniel Cay.
On New Year's Day we relaxed, swam a little and toured around the anchorage in the dinghy before heading out to dinner. Staniel Cay YC has a very nice restaurant and we decided to treat ourselves to a nice meal to celebrate the start of 2017. We joined our friends Gregg and Glenda from Ti Amo for a great evening at the Club, what a great way to start the year!
