Marsh Harbour to Man-O-War Cay

Thursday we met up with Barb and Barry (BeachCruiser), and Leslie and Doug (Happy Clamz, a Manatee Kroger motor vessel) in Marsh Harbor.  It was one of the best weather days we have had in some time.  We had breakfast and did some shopping and errands.  Once we were loaded back on to Hold Fast, we put the dinghy motor away, pulled up anchor and headed over to Man-O-War Cay.  We made water along the way, about 37 gallons.  We are on a mooring in the Eastern Harbor, which is very quiet and dark at night.  It is also seriously peaceful during windy or stormy weather, which we had Friday night.

On Friday Myron helped Barry and Paul with a project over at Jay’s house.  Jay scored us some batten stock, so I am sure our main sail repair will be a project for Myron in the near future.  To the best of my ability, I compiled mountains of laundry into three loads.  At $5/wash and $5/dry, you can understand why.  After laundry was back on the boat (but not put away) I got the rest of the afternoon with Barb in her sewing room.  We sewed and talked and she gave me all kinds of colors for my current and future quilt projects.  I hope to have more afternoons like that while we are here!

Jay also scored us some sugar cane from his yard.  That is the first time I have ever chewed on sugar cane, it is downright good!

There are more people to see and more things to do here.  Myron says we will be here through the Super Bowl, and then we will be looking for a weather window to head south.

Love to all,
