After Barbara and Joanne departed George Town,

uninhabited, protected park land. Clean, unspoiled and absolutely
I love it when a turtle or dolphin comes to
The George Town Cruisers Regatta started on the
day my Aunt Nola arrived. We convinced her to join our Trivial
Pursuit team and we won 1st place! Then we crewed for Tom and Cathy
in the 'Around the Harbor' Race and won 3rd place. Mike walked Lucy
in the Pet Parade with at least 15 other dogs.
The beach on the Atlantic Ocean side of the
island is breathtakingly beautiful. We enjoyed long walks on this
My sister Valarie arrived in George Town a week later and
the next day we sailed all day to arrive at Blackpoint where we would
hunker down for the next 3 days while a storm blew over.
We played dominoes and card games, read books, took naps, ate and
drank. I felt bad that Valarie was spending her Bahamas vacation
sequestered in the boat, but we actually had a lot of fun. It was
relaxing and we all got to laugh a lot.
The rain stopped and the wind let up just
enough for Mike and I to make a run into town for essentials. The
next day we were able to move over to Big Majors Spot anchorage on Staniel
Cay. And beautiful weather!
