How low can you go?
04 April 2019 | Marsh Harbor, Abacos, Bahamas
What a day!
We started with a hearty breakfast......fresh eggs, bacon, fruit and toast. I must be in heaven. Fresh eggs and fruit are hard to come by some days and it seemed like a feast.
After breakfast we started on our chores......mine (we refer to as pink jobs) were to clean our forward guests bed of all the extra “stuff” we had be piling up in there. Then I needed to clean our a cabinet that is every changing as we pull inventory from it constantly and it needed to be reorganized.
The “blue” jobs would be to clean out the front water tank as it had a residue in it we did not like, routine service on the generator and finally work on the bilge pump. Oh what fun!
We needed a piece of tubing for the bilge pump so we scooted into town to the hardware store and meandered a little further to see if we could find a pet supply store.
Along our way into town we have seen two set of friends who asked us about rib night at the Jib Room. We gave it a little thought and decided to ask other friends as well. So we have Dagny (Allan & Bev), Migration (Charlie), Bright Ayes (Wayne & Betty), Early Out (Jeff & Cindy), Seaquel (Joel & Donna) and then of course the two of us. So the thing about the Jib Room, it is like a buffet line with ribs, chicken and fish. You choose you entree when you make your reservation and then at 1900 hours the line opens up for the feast to begin.
Lots of conversations happening and the acoustics are horrible. You can hardly hear anyone but we were all smiling and having a good time. After dinner we go outside for the “rake and scrape” music, which is a saw with a screwdriver being scraped along the saw to and fro creating a sound that goes with the beat of the music in the background.
The entertainment does not stop there. Next we have the limbo line with folks lining up to see how low they can go. Always fun to watch as the Jib Room has their own “professional” and he taunts everyone as he does his routine at each level till he gets to less than three feet. No one is challenging him anymore as he takes the limbo stick and replaces it with a lighted pole. Dousing it with alcohol to light it he sets it at the lowest setting they had and puts a cigarette in his mouth. He then goes under the limbo pole with all its fire and lights the cigarette as he completes his successful trip under the pole. Great fun to watch.
Some are leaving and we say our goodbyes as we hang with Dagny just a little longer knowing we won’t see them again for another season or two. Once Bev has finished dancing, we decide to call it a night.
