Sending the location as much as anything, if
you zoom in on this position on google earth (satelite version on
mailasail) you should see we are surrounded by coral reefs and islands.
The wind is still coming at us at a rate of knots but it's relatively calm and
no swell tonight!
We had the kayak out again today for the first time
in ages so feels like we are on holiday for a while. Paddled across to two
of the beaches here today and in the morning we'll go to the boat free area
where the turtles gather. Gone off taking the didital camera underwater
since it had a turn but for a turtle picture on the blog we may risk
Yesterday after the stern gland had been fixed I
spent a while under the boat with the mini scuba gear on, (Susan is right
about the guys who do that for a living needing all their shots up to
date). Job was to clean us up a bit under the water line. Having found an
'undredged' part of Rodney Bay Marina in front of G dock it looked as if we had
lost all the antifouling paint on the bulb of the keel, turns out we had helped
the dredging and had a load of mud still stuck there. The log had not been
working so did that from outside instead of taking it apart from under the floor
yet again. Gave the water line a bit of a scrub etc etc. It's so
glamarous living on a yacht, I have come to think of it as a synergistic
relationship, if one of us doesn't function the other will suffer. Unlike
the MEGA yacht (aka small cruise ship) Rising Sun anchored just outside the Cays
tonight thats more like living in a small town, where everyone knows what you
are doing but it makes very little difference to the whole thing!!
Anyway, todays picture; one of our best features on
board, the solar shower. On a hot day like today the water is almost
too hot to use it is so efficient. We have a shower plumbed in on the
swim deck but usually prefer this one, thanks Hannah.
