We have been busy little bees here since our arrival at Green Turtle three days ago! After getting some sleep, we moved the boat to a better spot, tucking in along the shore just north of the entrance to White Sound. There, we awaited the arrival of our friends from Jensen Beach, Jim and Vicky, and their son Jay, who all made the passage in their 35' Intrepid. (It was a rather wet ride for them between the rain and the spray, unfortunately, but nothing too onerous!) We had them fender up along our portside, and had our own little raft-up!
The weather, while warm and humid, has been somewhat gray and dismal at times since the cloudy weather tempered the sun’s rays. Of course, that hasn’t dampened any spirits! Since their arrival, we’ve done as much as we possibly could, from running in to The Green Turtle Club Wednesday night to dance to the music of The Gully Roosters (“Number 1 Band in the Nation!”) to walking about historic New Plymouth on Thursday, to fine dining in the saloon of Equinox (fresh mahi fillets, spinach and leek risotto, steamed asparagus and Captain Ron’s awesome chopped salad), to movie nights and sundowners aboard. What a treat to be back in the Abacos!

but rest assured the Goombay Smash is still a favorite!
