Kids Week.

Jeremy, Amy, Dad, Mom, and Jill 
Well it was a very busy and fun week with the kids here. This is in Port Lucaya over where there are a lot of shops and restaurants  They bus the tourist from the cruise ships that come into Freeport here. This is also where most of the water sport tours originate; booze cruise, snorkeling, diving, fishing and more. Quite the tourist population is here. Blue was not happy as we left her on the boat. The kids room was right near the boat so we had A/C during some of the days when it was HOT, and Humid. Oh yeah I guess it's still not spring up north yet,...  There was a grill right in front of their room so we did all of the cooking there. We went to the beach several times, visited the  Grand Lucayan Waterway, and viewed all of the empty and abandoned sites. They had big plans for the island and again like Great Harbour Cay, it is the land of broken dreams. Jeremy, Jill, and dad went out snorkeling making it to the east of Bell Channel. There really was a lot of fish, we had taken the new and better dinghy of ours and made it to an area where all the glass bottom boats go. There was one that had a whole room under water for people to sit and look out. It was the size of a gondola that would be under a blimp if you can picture that. There must have been about 25 people in it just watching fish and the crew had been chumming from above so that was the reason all the fish where near them. We swam over to wave at the kids with their noses pressed up against the glass. I was going to shoot a large fish but figured it would find it way on Facebook and it would be too small or just illegal somehow so I held off. 
The Gold Rock Creek Film Studio is on Grand Bahamas and only 45 min drive and worth the visit. Not a lot there any more but the two sunken items in the picture is what was used to film Pirates of the Caribbean, II and III Dead mans Chest and I don't know what III was called. There is quite a bit on the internet about the filming of it with photos too. 
This is the pitch for filming here, pretty cool check it out. 


What a trill it is to see our kids together and such good friends. To hear of their successes and the threshold of where they are going is humbling to say the least,...

Amy and Jeremy with the new location and house in the DC area now have Chickens and a chicken coop may be on my to do list if we get there in time,..

Jill with her new job of only 6 months had earned a week of PTO (not power take off BUT Paid Time Off; who the hell ever thought or heard of that,...if only I knew LOL)
and more still on the books.

This is in the old studio too where they filmed the mangrove scenes. Very Pretty and a great spot under the shade to just sit and chill. Had we known it was here we would have brought the cooler and towels.

Senor Frog in Freeport is always a cool stop. Nice Chairs

Jill and Blue staying out of the sun and some Frisbee time at the best beach we found to date.
Oh yeah we all got wet this day. Back to the pool and a final night of poker, which Jeremy won, too bad he couldn't take his prize back home with him so he left it on the boat and I promised to bring his bottle of rum back with us to the states and,........opps sorry, I'll work on the chicken coop instead,...

This is most likely our last week here in the Bahamas. We'll be spending a short time in Florida but more time than we had other years. We're very excited about what is coming up for us and the opportunities are endless. But for sure the boat is still our home and travel is still a need.

Thanks for watching, more to come
