Fun in Georgetown

21 April 2018
Our social calendar has been full since we arrived in Georgetown. Have spent time with old friends from previous years and made new friends. We have been spending a lot of time at the beach and in the water since the weather has gotten pretty hot. In the mid to upper 80's most days. We have taken a lot of hikes around Stocking Island and have had several happy hours both at the beach and at different boats.

We have become friends with a Canadian couple, Colin and Catherine. She is a jewelry maker and makes beautiful glass bead earrings, necklaces and bracelets out of beads she creates herself and sells in her online store. She brought a few samples for people to see and had a group of us ladies over last Friday morning for a jewelry viewing party. The guys hung out at Chat n Chill while we had our chick time and then we joined them for lunch.

On Saturday we attended a dance with a Bahamian band at Lumina Point, a nice resort that has a beautiful open air restaurant with a great view of the harbor. We even dressed nice for a change instead of our customary shorts and t shirts.

Monday night we had a farewell dinner on Flying Saucer, they are leaving the harbor soon. We were joined by Lodestar. We had a great dinner of chicken parm and even had dessert, coconut crepes topped with oranges marinated in rum and topped with melted chocolate. Yum. What a great time.

On Tuesday night we hosted a red bean party at our boat(more on that in my next blog).

We met a really nice British lady, Katherine, who lives here in Georgetown. We met through our friend Dennis. On Thursday she volunteered to drive us around the island to see the sights. We drove to the south end of Great Exuma and then on down to Little Exuma. We visited the Tropic of Cancer beach, the Salt Pillar and Salt ponds,then had lunch at Tropic Breeze restaurant. We also made stops at Santanas restaurant for drinks, Mom's bakery for some rum cake, then back to Gtown with a stop at February Point for Pina Coladas and a final stop at Two Turtles for another Pina Colada followed by dinner at Peace and Plenty. We really appreciated her doing this for us.

On Friday we finally caught up with our old friends Bob and Dianne on Two of a Kind. We took a morning hike followed by a swim and a late afternoon happy hour on their boat.

There was a pot luck on the beach today but we were just too tired to go. Can you believe we would skip a party! We just thought we needed a day to rest since regatta starts Monday and that means lots more activities.
