Countdown to the Regatta

With a bit of sadness, we bid farewell to Melisa, Brian, Anna Lisa and Grant this morning.  We had a wonderful visit which I'm sure will be remembered by all.  Two weeks with guests and it already is begining to feel a little lonely.  You just become accustomed to all the commotion, conversation and loving smiles, that once it's gone, normal no longer seems so normal. 
We did get to spend a little time with John and Susan Hornaday, their daughter Brooks and her husband Steve.  We spent the morning talking, laughing and swapping stories.  By lunch we had really worked up an appetite, so we sauntered down to the Peace & Plenty to grab Sunday lunch together.  It was nice to catch up with some friends from home and to hear about their cruising plans for the next few months.
Here is the final installment of the Ciarrocca Saga.  Some of these pictures may even become the next P90X promotion posters!

Melisa, Brian, Anna Lisa and Grant

The Next group has arrived!  We have already had lots of fun but have taken very few pictures.  We have gone snorkeling at Fowl Cay, attended a sunrise Easter Service on the beach, played in a Texas Holdem tourney with 45 other cruisers, sang karoke at the St Francis Resort and have even caught a fish at anchor off the stern!  Here is the first installment of pictures:
We will post more pictures soon, so check back and follow the link!

Kevin, Lisa and Tyler

We are glad to have Kevin, Lisa and Tyler visiting with us this week.  We have left the Exumas Docking for Stocking Island on the other side of Elizabeth harbor.  Yesterday we went to the pig roast at the "Chat and Chill".  Today we sampled the burgers at the "Peace and Plenty Beach Club".  Check out the pics from these and other adventures at:

Hello all.  I know its been some time since our last post but I've been lazy.  We've spent a few days traveling, a few days exploring Cave Cay, a few days working on the boat, and a few days exploring Georgetown.  I have been glad to find that GT doesn't quite live up to its poor reputation as other cruisers have told us.  I guess its a place you either love or hate.  I'm not sure which side I'll end on, but wouldn't be surprised if I ended up in the middle.  It definitely isn't as unspoiled and beautiful as other places we've visited but it is still pretty beautiful.  And, being back in "civilization" does have its advantages... ie groceries, restaurants.  I tried hitchhiking for the first time in my life.  I was headed to the NAPA auto parts store to get some filters for the boat and on the way stopped to get a wi-fi card from Perez - the local wi-fi guru, pet store owner and Rastafarian.  I asked how far the Napa was and he said I should "hike it mon, someone will pick you up!"  True to his word someone did pick me up.  As I got in, my benefactor said, "I'm just having some lunch mon, do you want some?"  He was eating some chicken wings and pointed me to the plate.  I had just eaten a killer meatloaf at the Peace and Plenty Beach Club and so declined his generous offer.  That seems to be how most folks are around here... always quick with a smile and greeting, willing to lend a hand whenever they can.  No one seems to be rich monetarily but instead are truly rich in kindness, generosity and sense of community.
