It's a Small Small World!

19 February 2017
Yesterday I was sitting in the cockpit partaking in a couple of my favourite passtimes aboard Dagny which are lurking and checking out other boats with the binoculars. I like to look at different designs, deck layouts and equipment people use in order to help improve our own boat. One boat caught my eye that I hadn't seen before, but after close study I concluded it was probably an Express 35 that used to be made in Canada. Upon closer examination I thought this boat looked familiar but the owners were out for the day. Imagine their surprise when I radioed them and asked if they had bought their boat from Jack Folkins ( a member at HYC) and my surprise when they said yes. It truly is a small world.

Rock Sound has lived up to it's reputation so far as a great provisioning stop; there are two good grocery stores, a nice hardware store and a NAPA store all within walking distance of the town dock. There is free water available and if one has a long enough hose you can fill the jerry cans right in th dinghy. While doing so yesterday I noticed a guy across the road under an umbrella selling something, I wondered over and found he was making conch salad to go. We ordered one and Bev got a lesson on how to prepare it as he made us a nice big delicious salad to take home for dinner. I think roosters might be the national bird of the Bahamas because there are certainly a lot around here to help us get our day started.
