Our Christmas was filled with lots of fun and sun, we went to the beach after breakfast and did a lot of walking, so much that the doggies had to be carried on the way back. For dinner we had a potluck with some other boats that were anchored out in the small cove. Jon made some conch fritters that were the best I have had so far in the Islands.
On Sunday the winds picked up to around 35 and one by one the anchored boats took up some empty slips at the dock. Not that we want to be at a dock spending all our kitty money but it was nice knowing we were OK in the huge two day blow.
Jon is still trying to get the parts for the engine, the good news is that the mechanic helping Jon with it finally came and carted the engine off and will get with Jon today to start pulling it apart to see exactly what needs to be replaced.
