We woke up on Monday morning and Zeke could not put any weight on his left paw. I tell ya this dog is going to be the death of us! We got out the magnify glass and sure enough he had some left over burr pieces stuck in between his pads. Poor guy, we did our best to get them out and even asked eagle eye Dan to look at his paw. We bandaged up his paw and all went to Chat n Chill Monday afternoon. It is a beautiful beach with an outdoor restaurant, volleyball net and picnic tables. The cruisers have events there every day, for example there was a class on basket weaving, they play dominoes and cards. Keeps you from going stir crazy or getting “cabin “ fever I suppose. We had a tasty burger and just chilled, Garth played a bit of volleyball.
|Conch salad anyone?|
|No Toronto but there is a .........|
|Seriously ...distance energy healing!!|
|Ahh the smell of fresh bread!|
Thursday we returned to the dock at the Exuma Yacht Club and spent the next two days getting ready for our company. We did take a break to go back to the Rack n Scrape at the Peace and Plenty. This time we stayed for the music and I have to tell you we were all hurting units the next morning. Not sure if it was the rum punches, the dancing or a combination of the two!
Stacy and Steven (Dan & Judys son) were arriving on Sunday and the wind was really picking up. We did not want to get stuck in George Town. We decided to leave Georgetown and go back to the Perry Institute. We would wait there, Stacy and Steven would take a taxi to Barraterre and Dan would take Con there to pick them up. WHEW! the plan worked Steven and Stacy arrived a little worse for wear and a bit salty but safe!
We all enjoyed a wonderful dinner aboard Quest then it was early to bed.
First order of business was a trip to the Pink Iguanas for Stacy and Judy being driven in the tender by Steven. It was a little...ok a lot rough out there. Once they saw the Iguanas Steven brought the tender up to the back of Algonquin and Stacy literally jumped aboard! Again, a little worse for wear and a bit salty.
We are presently on the inside and thank goodness cause it was so nasty out in the ocean today, 25 knot winds and 6-8 foot waves. If we hadn't left on Saturday we would all be sitting at the dock in George Town
|After 6 hours we arrived at Compass Cay|
|It's better in the Bahamas|
