Rainy Day Mondays...

...are followed by Sunny Day Tuesdays! While the weather didn't exactly cooperate on Monday, we didn't let the overcast skies dampen our spirits! Still, we didn't do a whole lot throughout the day, although Ron and Kerry did get out in Tingum in the morning to do a bit of fishing. They returning with one good-sized mahi-mahi, and several stories of the ones that got away.. Muriel, Paul and Karyn stayed aboard Equinox and had a low-key day. Paul & Muriel went to the beach over at Treasure Cay, and Karyn took the opportunity to accomplish some small boat tasks - vacuuming, laundry, dishes, etc. 

We were invited for evening sundowners were aboard Concrete Idea by Kerry and Karen, which started off the night nicely! Dinner aboard Equinox was one of Chef Ron's favorite specialties: surf and turf comprised of lobster and filet mignon. Although the surf portion was not made with local Bahamian lobster as it's not lobster season here. Nevertheless, the ambience was warm and tropical, the food quite delicious, and the wine even more so, as we shared a bottle of Chateau Montelena Cabernet. Dinner, of course, was followed by a viewing of Bottle Shock...we had to watch the movie with it's namesake wine, right?

Their Chardonnay stars in the movie, but their
Cabernet is delicious also!

Stars were out from horizon to horizon in full glory as the clouds finally dissipated. We spent the late evening sitting on the cushioned bench seats on the bow, star-gazing and wishing on shooting stars, listening to the waves and just enjoying the night breezes over the water. A great night on anchor on the Sea of Abaco!
