Cruisers love to get together and what better reason that it’s Cinco de Mayo, and Long Johns birthday on the same day. All cruisers in the anchorage were invited to a Mexican Pot Luck, meaning each yacht brings a Mexican Dish to share and their own drinks. We had about 30 Cruisers, all gathering at the Hog Cay Yacht Club Boma around 4.30pm. As there are no lights ashore, dinner is an early affair.

As darkness fell, we moved from the Boma to around the fire pit, with music provided by Karen, Hanna and John

Wonderful bonfire

Fab night, with excellent Frozen Margaritas, Bahamian Sky Juice, a variety of Chillie con Carne, fajita, tacos, Mexican salads and salsa.
Cruisers certainly know how to stage an excellent Social.
Thanks to Marita and Holli for the planning, table and decoration setup.
