Bahama Passage Still On-Hold


Gary and Ed have been deligently watching the weather reports for both here and the Bahamas.  It looks like we might make our crossing on Wednesday or Thursday.  Hopefully, by Friday we will be seeing the crystal blue water we all are longing to see.

Today, Ed took us to shore in the dingy and dropped us off so we could do some shopping .  Just a short walk brought us to the grocery store and the CVS.  Cheryl went to Stein Mart, which is in the same plaza as the grocery store, while Gary and I walked another half mile to West Marine.  We reunited at the grocery and finished our shopping there.  While Gary was going through the check-out, I walked across the street to a French Cafe and purchased a freshly baked round of bread.  We have all the ingredients needed to make bread on the boat, but as long as it’s available to buy, the galley slave is opting to enjoy the fresh baked goods of others. 

Yesterday morning, Gary and I went to the French Cafe for breakfast with the couple from one of the other Gemini catamarans in this harbor, Lily Pad.  The captain’s name is Sandy, and his wife and first mate is Nancy.  Sandy and Nancy’s boat will be  the third Gemini in our flotilla going to the Bahamas. We found out the fourth Gemini in the harbor has had no one aboard for awhile.

Yesterday evening, Chery and Ed came over to our boat for Easter dinner.  She grilled a pork tenderloin and I made eveything else.  After dinner, we taught them how to play Parcheesi.   

No church service.  No Easter egg hunt.  No big family dinner.  Gary and I sat on the love seat on the back of the boat, and listened to the church bells ringing in the distance.  Church of a different kind.  A great Easter Day…
