Greg/Mary Sunny with wind
We have been negligent in our blogging. I think it has to do with the sun, water, rocking boat, rum punches, and just being here. Time just kinda sails by.
We had our first guests on our sailboat. Keith and Mary Carol, Greg's brother and sister came down without their spouses to spend some warm time. Both were escaping the long winter. We had a wonderful time exploring new places and going back to some of our favorite ones. Hope town, Nipper's on guana Cay and Treasure cay to name a few. It was so good to be with people that know us and not have to start from scratch with new friends.
We have decided that we are ready to head back to Florida. We have a large to do list for our boat before next season. We hope to get some of them done while we are in Florida and start budgeting for others. Our plans are to be back in Florida around May 1st. We will be going back to St Petersburg, FL and stay at the same Marina where we were before.
This is and has been a great experience with lots of learning moments. We still feel like first time sailors. Yesterday we did not get a morning weather report. We started out based on an old report 10-15knots of wind, sunny day. One hour after we leave our secure anchorage we are battling in out in 25-30knot winds, driving rain and heavy seas. We are wet and cold and drop the mooring hook trying to get hooked to a ball. Thankfully we had help from a neighboring boat and all is well that ends well.
Today it is time for a Sunday pig roast.
