With the chicken tetrazzini now in the freezer, we have plenty of meals to just thaw and microwave for our trip home.
We will return our mifi today so our ability to stay connected daily will cease for the most part. We do have a "sat" device that will allow emailing or texting and emergency phone calls which is new for us and we are hoping not to have any emergencies but thankful for the device.
Today with the bad weather we have had some misfortunate accidents happening around us and are just grateful that today "we are not the show". The most unfortunate part of any incident is the fact of course that "it" happened. The second unfortunate thing is the number of so called "innocent bystanders".....the "gawkers" or those trying to figure out what happened. Well we are one of those today as there is not much else to do, but I feel bad for the people that are the "show".
Greg and I found ourselves in a similar situation a week or so ago as we were trying to anchor. You saw people in their cockpits watching for a while and then when they did not want you to think they were watching they would scoot downstairs and watch from their port windows. It was a nerve wracking moment for us but what's wrong with providing anchoring 101 lessons for folks? We finally found our spot and all was good.....especially now that we can laugh about it.
Betty and Dave (Fancy Free), Charlie (Migration), Joel and Donna (Seaquel) and us are all gathering one last time at Snappa's. We have all had or have a Caliber 40 and can talk about the ins and outs of our vessels. It is fun to compare notes and tell stories. George McCreary would be proud of his owners as they all say how much they love their boats. Confidence in your home on the water is big thing and our 40 as well as our 47 have been amongst the best!
We say our goodbyes to all and head to Ti Amo and prepare for our early morning departure to Green Turtle Cay. We will wait there or Powell Cay for our opportunity to cross towards home.
