Fun in the Abacos
We are having a lot of fun here in the Abacos. The weather is in a pattern of very high winds four or five days then calm for maybe one or if really lucky two days. We have been told that the cruisers are just not here this year. We have a hard time finding a place for the ability to connect to the internet but the places that we can are paradise. Sunday night we hit two places for the Super bowl. The Green Turtle Marina was the first which had several cruisers, then at Half time went to Sundowners which is locals and cruisers.
This morning we woke up and needed to do some repairs. Yes we had to think about all the little things that needed to be fixed on Kasidah. Jon did a little repairing of some wiring that came apart when the microwave leaped across the galley, and then I need to bring the headsail to the dock and mend the leading edge which took a beaten during the crossing.
We love reading all the stuff that people email us to let us know either what’s going on back home or just to talk about the sailing we are doing. It keeps us in touch with the real world.
The dogs are doing fine and really love the beaches when they can go off their leads and explore. Sara has noticed a new creature but they seem to be getting bigger and bigger, some times she will be sleepin
g and the
y will go right up to her nose. When she opens her eyes she runs after them and it is a hoot to see them run from her.
