Still Crazy

We enjoyed dining out with other cruisers at the Crazy Love Cafe, taking up 3 of the 5 tables. Prime rib night! We're singing "Crazy Love" by Van Morrison in the first pictures below.
The Wrecking Tree is a restaurant built around the original New Plymouth wrecking tree.  The wrecking crews, people going out to wrecks to salvage treasure and other goodies, would bring their bounty to this tree to divvy up the proceeds. We had the BEST cracked conch so far at the Wrecking Tree. Chatted with the cook after dinner. She said she gets smaller conch from the shallow Sea of Abaco instead of larger conch from the deeper Atlantic ocean and it makes a difference. Big difference, dinner was excellent.

Surf Casting

There are great beaches on Green Turtle.  We have had some fun fishing from shore.  You get right in the surf and cast past the rocks.  Ed has had success catching bonefish and triggerfish (triggerfish are really ugly but tasty).

Green Turtle Cay

We love Green Turtle Cay, a quaint island complete with the sound of roosters crowing to wake you in the morning.  When was the last time you saw a telephone booth?   The buildings are all painted in pastels...even the old pink jail!


Luckily we have been able to sail a lot here in the Bahamas.  Here we are sailing with our friends on Old Rosie.
