Powell Cay

As always, we had a great stay at MOW Cay. For the first part of our stay, we were moored at the far end of the eastern harbor, surrounded by our Nova Scotian friends. At the end of our stay, we moved to a mooring near the opening of the eastern harbor, next to Barb and Barry.

We used up the remainder of the mahi at dinners with Barb and Barry and also at Jan and Jay's. Jan and Jay showed us a new method of BBQ'g the mahi, something I will repeat should we catch more. Jay marinated the fish in sour orange, and then Jan coated it in pepper and mayonnaise. I coated a few in mayonnaise mixed with dry wasabi which was also a big hit. Jan patiently taught me her method for cooking peas and rice, so I have decided I will give it another try at some point in the future. Maybe if we catch some fish?

We got to visit friends at church on Sunday and watch a play by the high school kids on Wednesday. Myron and I got a few pretty good laughs out some of their lines, plus it had a very good message. Uncle Willard gave us a tour of his garden. Myron's diagnosis was a need for more nitrogen. We bought the last bag of 10-10-10 on the shelf for him during our day trip to Marsh Harbor.

We bid goodbye to Barb and Barry this morning, who were also preparing to fly back to the states to assist in the delivery of a 65' motor vessel donated to the Hope Town Sailing Club. I imagine they were already in Florida on the boat before we made it to Powell Cay. It would be a kick if we saw them in the boat going the other direction as we sail toward the states.

Powell Cay is pretty. The wind has gone slightly south of east, bringing a mild swell around the cay. I am probably only noticing it because we have been in a well protected harbor for over a week. There is one power boat and eight other sail boats with us in this large anchorage. We chose not to launch the dinghy, but rather lounge around and use up the last bit of our telephone data service. Myron is checking weather. We were looking at winds of 20 to 25 knots and some angry seas, but the wind forecast keeps decreasing, making our day of departure uncertain.

Love to all,
