Dennis/East winds, blahhh
Here we sit, broken hearted, came to sail, and never started..................
Weather windows are tricky, we shoulda, coulda, left last Friday,,,,,,,,,,,,,we didn't.....
Wanted to be greedy and pick this Tuesday,,,,,,,,,,,,,,little did we know, that mister weather decided to move the "nastys" earlier and ruin those plans. Now it's lookin like Saturday. But ya can't believe that one either.
Gary and Martha are plannin to leave Saturday for Florida as we move to go east.
Maybe a "double crossing" made good. Problem about this crossing of the bar, is there is no wind and I'll have to play motorboat. This is an area of shallow water, about 65 miles from Bimini. At the end of this bar is the tongue,,,,,,,,,,,,,,"tongue of the ocean" is where the shallow "bar" hits the major depths of 3000 ft. in just a couple hundred yards,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,whoooopeee in the wrong weather............
That's why we plan this weather thing so close,,,,,,,,,,,,,and you know what scares me,,,,,,,,,,,these are weather men, and women, predicting the thing we all know is "unpredictable"..............and I'm plannin on their stuff......."heaven help us""""""""""""
The wind is from the east at this time, rockin us in our slip as I type this..........would be much easier on the hook, as the waves arent big, but from the wrong direction........at anchor they would come from the front.........mucho burito............
You know what,,,,,,,,,I miss mexican food.................
We haven't had news sence we left the states on the 24th Feb,,,,,,,,,,,,are ya'll still there??
Watchin videos, and once in a while catch a satelite tv brodcast ya can't here.............gettin not to miss it........
How's the market?? Have I become richer or poorer????
Spring break has started on the island,,,,,,,,,,,,,,3 big sailing cats have came to the marina for a week of partyin and partyin,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and mabe a little drinkin to boot. Each boat is 40', and has about 17 kids on board.............
As I write this, about a dozen left for the excitement of Bimini's bars,,,,,,,,now 10pm, we'll see if they come back before sunrise...........ha ha
Today we had an excursion to South Bimini,,,,,,,,,,,,took the boat taxi over for $2 each, walked a half mile and found the "free bus" has a dead battery.......???? don't know when it'll run again.............?????????? about 45 min later the driver had the jumper battery charger hooked up, and it's runnin again. Gary and Martha were impatient, and started hoofin it to the bar, but Pam, Ray and I waited for the battery,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,We won, sat at the bar for a quarter hour before G&M showed up all puffed out...........
We eventually rolled out of the bar and caught the bus back to the water taxi,,,,,,,,,,
All is kewl here, except the water is milky and the bull sharks are hard to see.
