Beach Treasures

We still haven’t diagnosed the dinghy problem.  It is good to take us to the beach and back but starts acting up when we push the speed up, so we are taking advantage of what it can do for us in an early morning beach walk and search for treasures. Looking forward to getting these […]

Peace at Anchor-Rumbling on the Atlantic

It is always wise to anchor with protection from the winds.  We anchored behind Lynyard Cay in the Sea of Abaco protected from the winds blew on the Atlantic side.  The small island deflected the winds to make the Sea of Abaco calm.  A walk across the island shows how much the wind was churning […]

Good Morning Lynyard

One of the nicest parts of anchoring is the morning sunrise.  There is a quiet that is hard to find in populated areas.  We love to sit on the flybridge with a cup of coffee and see the day begin.     Joy

Let’s go to Lynyard Cay

A large contingent of Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club Members headed out of Abaco Beach Resort to anchor at Lynyard Cay on Wednesday.  Several boats picked up a mooring ball at Little Harbour just across the Sea of Abaco from Lynyard Cay.  The weather was good for heading south, so  many of the mooring balls […]

On a recent post, I made a note that I think in order to stay young we have to learn something new every day.  We have a dear friend who after she retired took painting lessons.  She continues to amaze us with her talent and we are delighted to own some of her work.   I […]

Replacing the Zincs or Anodes on Meandering Joy

Bear in mind as you read this that I do not understand everything about how the boat works. When we first bought the boat I was so overwhelmed with new information that I took the most basic lessons and moved on to the next topic. Now that we have been on the boat for 5 […]

Out and About at Great Guana

I am hesitant to complain about the weather here since many of you are in the US where the weather is much colder.  It has been a cold and windy January and early February in the Bahamas.  The Bahamian people wear scarves and hats when the weather is in the low sixties.  I think the […]
