Darn....another day?

26 March 2019 | Black Point, Exumas

Well as luck would have it, we found ourselves “stuck” in Black Point for another day. We woke to a rather gloomy looking day and spoke with several boats that were leaving out of Staniel Cay and heading to Eleuthera. They fought a mighty strong current out of the cut but the weather here was calling for squalls and winds in the upper 20s to 30 in those squalls. With that weather report for Black Point, we elected to hang around one more day.

And what a day it was!!!! Robin and I headed to the government dock where I take our bag of trash and monetary contribution for its disposal. The reason for the dinghy trip is to pick up some fresh made bread from Lorraine’s mom. She had told me I could come early to pick it up as she would be making the cinnamon raisin first thing. So with that we knock on the door and are welcomed with that sweet smile. She has coconut raisin and cinnamon, cinnamon and raisin, banana, white and wheat bread ready. Wow.....i am in heaven. The aroma plus a little butter ....... I think I could stay here for weeks. I pick up a banana bread as she does not put nuts in hers unless it is requested in advance (she knows me too well). Then I am so taken with the aroma I pick up a coconut cinnamon and raisin as well as a plain cinnamon and raisin. I will slice and freeze them so that we can take slices out for breakfast as needed. Mission complete so we head for the dinghy and motor out to Ti Amo.

Robin and I have some planning to do and what better time than this that we have been granted. So we sit down and talk through the upcoming June wedding we are going to help with. Robin has always been a good person to see the details and ask all the right questions. We sit in the cockpit of Ti Amo as Greg and Jaxon make their way to the beach via several stops to different boats. Greg stops to lend Barry a hand with changing his oil and soon they are back to Ti Amo.

Then the rains squall....small....then another. It cleared and I took Robin back to Crossroads where we have agreed to gather at 4:30 for one last appy hour. Back on Ti Amo to fix a little lunch and then the skies open up for a major rain. The boats are all happy to see it as it helps shed the salt off their hulls and decks.

By 4:30 it has cleared enough and we head to Crossroads to bid our warm wishes for the remainder of their cruise. They are heading further south to George Town and then heading back up to Eleuthera, Spanish Wells and on.
We will shove off and start heading north.

So we are truly thankful to have had time with them. We are back to Ti Amo and settling in for the evening.
