Christmas in the Exumas
We were very excited to see sv AlleyCat and  sv Shilo sailing into the Majors a few days before Christmas.  Immediately plans were put into place for a big dinner on Xmas eve aboard Alleycat, and just in time more friends of theirs, on sv AquaVida arrived too.  Thanks to Marita and Alan for hosting a fantastic evening, and everyone for the great food.

I though that Mike & I cleaned up quite well, but not nearly as stylish as Alan and Marita

Yes – we even had a home baked gammon and Xmas cake
On Christmas day we all dinghied over to the beach for a relaxing day of leftovers, rum punch and sunshine. We have not spent a lot of time on the beach this time, due to the plague of no-see-ums & flies.  Everyone has been badly bitten, and sundowners there are impossible. But on Xmas day, even the bugs had the day off, and it was another great day.

Mike has made us a “boat board” to hang at Pirate’s beach – alongside all the other boats that visit here regularly.
