Whaler Tale: Part II

Today’s post is a continuation of Steve’s Boston Whaler Dinghy Story from yesterday. If you missed it–click here to read it first.   My buddy Spencer and I hauled the boat back from Orange Beach to Spencer’s custom-built 5000 square foot boat shop, we call it Sunbelt Marine.  We began to work on it immediately.  The […]

A whaler of a tale…

Dinghy: a small boat designed as a tender or lifeboat, especially a small ship’s boat, rowed, sailed or powered by motor.   Our dinghy is very important to us.  We use a car to go places while at home on land.  We use a dinghy to go places the big boat can’t go.  When we are […]

A typical day in Marsh Harbour

We are back in Marsh Harbour and getting into a routine of activity.  After a great time spent at home, it was time to come back to our home away from home.   A trip to the grocery store was our first task after our return.  Maxwell’s grocery store is a mile and a half from […]

Snow in Georgia

It was quite a shock to leave the Bahamas with 70 degree weather and arrive in the U.S. with its freezing temperatures. It was 21 degrees when we got back to o our home in Georgia.  I adjusted quickly and figured out how to turn up the temperature on our new thermostat devices and by […]

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 […]

Killing Time on Great Guana

(12/28/17) It was Caroline’s request that we come to the golf cart parade on Great Guana.  Caroline is a travel expert.  She recently visited Barcelona, Portugal, and Ireland–some of this travel was alone while waiting for friends to join her.  She likes a site Atlas Obscura-Curious and Wondrous Travel Destinations.  The site allows the user […]
