Breezy But Beautiful!

Another sunny but breezy day in the lucky we are to be here! Ron and I had a great day, beginning with working out on the bike trainer in the early hours. The view across the water was fabulous, from the birds sailing around, to the flying fish popping out of the water (fleeing from what, I wondered?) to the Bahamian cargo boat that made its way south on the Sea of Abaco...just lovely serene views that definitely made the time fly by!

Getting ready to ride

After a bite of breakfast, we did a few small boat projects through the late morning before we went ashore, docking at Grabber’s again. We took an hour’s walk about the island, along the main road harbor on the west side before going over to the beach on the east side to see how the ocean was behaving. It looked a tad rough...!

Heading to Grabbers with game colors on!
We spent the afternoon at Grabber’s watching football...Ravens-Bills, of course! Guana Cay locals and visitors alike congregate there to watch sports on Sundays, and while Steelers fans outnumbered us, we were able to watch both games with mutual respect! (Steelers barely eked it out over Miami, and Baltimore managed the same over Buffalo. We were all grateful to win!) It was a great time...although, just for once, can’t the Ravens win a game without it going down to the wire?? It seems every week we have to cheer and suffer at the same time...and this week was no exception, as it went into overtime, again! Thank goodness Baltimore managed to win, but please: we are tired of the stress of cardiac football!

After the game, we returned to the boat and pulled Eclipse into her chocks on deck, getting her secured and stowed for moving on tomorrow. We're watching the weather, and while we love it here, we think it's time to move on so that we are farther south. Perhaps stay near Marsh Harbor or points beyond, ready to take advantage of any calmer conditions for our crossing to the Exumas when we have the chance.
