Hello family & friends! We're at Palm Cay Marina, Nassau, for a few days, waiting for some nasty weather to pass ( predicting 30-45 kt winds, squalls, & waterspouts). It's nice having WiFi, and laundry, and using the courtesy car to get provisions before heading to the Exumas.
I'm happy to report that we'e adapting well to life aboard! We are still buddy boating with the Swain family from Cape Cod ( parents & 3 kids ages 12-10-5) since Christmas Eve and will probably stay together for awhile as we make our way to the Exumas once this front passes.
I've been baking quite a bit onboard, making bread & desserts ( inspired by Sarah Swain - musician, baker, dance & yoga instructor). We have been truly blessed to meet this family & wondering how we will part ways, feeling like we've known each other all our lives.
New Year's Eve at anchorage overlooking the lights of Nassau under a full moon, eating/drinking ("Pallar rum"- thank you Kate Mercedes!) singing in the cockpit proved to be the best NYE ever.

We've been snorkeling/swimming everyday, enjoying new friendships, & learning ALOT about the effects of plastics on the marine environment ( the Swain kids do a 30 minute trawl with a net to assess the amount of plastic- they have found more bits of plastic here than in waters of the US eastern seaboard!) It's been an eye opening experience!)
We're anxiously looking forward to moving south, but the 79 degree clear blue water and 83 degree air temp is not too hard to tolerate! We have been keeping track of weather at home and hope you are all safe & warm.
I'll upload pictures soon as the rain is starting and I have to stand under this palm tree for a WiFi signal!
