A great start to 2018

(1/1/18) What a great way to start of 2018 by watching our Georgia Bulldogs defeat the Oklahoma Sooners 54-48.  A crew of Sooners fans came in to cheer against us but to no avail–we dominated.  After the game, several people came over to us to say they were cheering for us the whole time–albeit silently.   […]

The party’s over!

(12/30/17) Caroline left us on Friday and now Katy, Matt & Lainey have to go back to reality.  We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.  Steve and I think it was a successful visit because all the kids were tired when they left.  I guess we still operate on the philosophy when they were small–keep the kids […]

Hello Sunshine!

(12/29/17) Our time with the kids is coming to an end.  Steve and I got up early Friday morning and were out of the marina by 6:15.  Caroline had a plane to catch in Marsh Harbour so we had to get out early.  We thought there might be a ferry from Great Guana to Marsh […]

Another snorkeling adventure

Mermaid Reef has proven to be a great hit every time we venture out that way.  It is an easy bike ride from Abaco Beach Resort.  We had to give the new all in one snorkel masks another try.   Saw some great fish but still not happy with the new masks.  If having to swim […]

A Golden Birthday

(12/26/17) Ever heard of a golden birthday?  A golden birthday is when one’s age and birthdate are the same.  My golden birthday was when I turned 23 on January 23. It is also possible to have a golden birthday with your birth year  for example a 57th birthday when born in 1957.  Caroline’s golden birthday […]

What color is the sea?

(12/26/17) What color is the ocean? I would have a hard time answering because there are so many shades I couldn’t pick just one. I took the picture of the sailboat because of the number of people on the side of the boat.  I had no idea it would show the different shades of blue […]
