Moon over Marsh Harbor

We enjoyed our stay in Marsh Harbor.  The full moon was spectacular,  even at sunrise, as you can see in the photo.  We finally got a chance to try the famous Bahamian coconut bread from Da Bes Yet  bakery....yum.  Also, a first for us, Rake n Scrape band with Brown Tip.  He cleans boat bottoms by day and entertains by night. Rake n Scrape is music with a saw and a grater. Wish I had his energy!  This little lizard joined us at the bar for happy hour.  We are now at Treasure Cay awaiting the Bahamian sunshine....its cold (61 degrees) and cloudy.

By the way, an update,  the Captain has fixed our generator and outboard dinghy engine (knock on wood). Great job, Bud jr.!

Holy Mackeral!

The weather has been unusual for Bahamas...lots of west winds.  On Monday we decided to head out the Whale passage to go south, an area with more choices for protection from west winds.  The passage can "rage" if the wind and sea conditions are just right (or just wrong).  Conditions were good so we headed out to sea and put out a lure...hopefully catch some dinner.  No luck outside but when we came in to the Sea of Abaco we switched to a smaller lure and......holy mackerel Ed caught a Spanish Mackeral!  Too small, we sent him back, but it was nice to finally catch one.   We are in Marsh Harbor...big town but only have internet at the restaurants and cafes.   TAke a look at the beautiful Marsh Harbor sunset.
