She Did It Again!

16 January 2019
After a few days of restocking and enjoying Georgetown it was time to get out of town for awhile. There are a lot of sailors who spend the whole winter anchored in Georgetown harbour and participate in the numerous activities that the cruiser's community organize. On Monday we went to trivia night with the crew of Sandbox and finished second out of 15 teams and won 2 bottles of wine. However, it's not our cup of tea, much as we enjoy a few days in town we prefer the beautiful secluded anchorages that abound in the area.

We had enjoyed our brief stay in Lee Stocking last week so we decided to return there for a few days. Tuesday morning was hot and sunny with very light winds so we hoisted the anchor at 9 a.m. and set off north under motor for the 3 hour trip. Once clear of the harbour Bev got her fishing gear ready, which included a new leader since the Wahoo had mangled it the other day. Once again as soon as we hit deep water (100' +) she ran out her line and within 15 minutes we had a good strike. After a 15 to 20 minute fight she landed dinner, a nice 10 lb Mahi Mahi. We arrived at our anchorage around 1 p.m. to find Ti Amo and 2 Outrageous already there. While Bev was getting another fish cleaning tutorial we made plans for a fresh fish dinner that evening. Along with the crew of Folly, (new friends from Midland ON.) we had a great evening aboard 2 Outrageous. How was dinner you ask, Delicious!

Once again weather will dictate our travel plans and there is a big wind event forecast for early next week. We'll sit here for a couple of days until the forecast is a little clearer before deciding where to ride it out. In the meantime, swim, snorkel, hike and relax.

Today's picture is last night's dinner.
