A gorgeous day after a week of rain, rain and more rain. It's lovely to be dry!! Of course, now we have 25-35 kts of gusty, blustery wind! But no worries! We're still having fun, glad to be reunited with Charlie and Trish Medico (off Medici in the slip next door), who are back down after a winter up in PA. We've had lovely time catching up with one another, generally hanging out and/or doing small boat projects, and eating up a storm! Thursday night was Bahamian lobster surf and filet mignon turf, and last night was Italian sausage, meatballs, chopped salad and pasta, pasta, pasta!! The Medico's friends, Sam and Lois, are down for the weekend too, so we've enjoyed some of Sam's homemade wine (delicious) and fun stories of boating at their house on the St. Lawrence River. Tonight they're going to La Scala, and we're hosting our land neighbors, David and Ricky Leibowitz, for a Caribbean fiesta night. Ron's making conch chowder as we speak, plus we'll have stone crab claws for appetizers, grilled Bahamian lobster, jerk chicken, and mango-avocado salad too!
