Wednesday Feb 24th
What’s been happening since we last chatted….
Last time we had also gone up at dusk when the light keeper light it, which was absolutely fascinating.
Soooo we just had to take advantage of this nice little window….actually everybody was on the same page…there was a mass exodus, most of the harbour emptied out.
Saturday morning, Indian Summer and Soli left HT close to high tide and we planned on meeting up with Hannyah and David (Dovolena) on Lynyard Cay. We unfortunately motored as the little wind we had was from the south, but it was a beautiful day and it felt good to be out on the open sea!
We met up with Dovolena …they had been anchored for a while as they went down the shallow passage which is much shorter…my skipper is driving the “Queen Mary” and we stick to “big ship” passages, but it mattered not we were in no hurry. The anchorage was such a pretty spot with a lovely beach, there were only half a dozen boats anchored there and everyone met up on the beach for “sun downers”. We barbecued steaks and had a peaceful night at anchor, David is so pleased with our new anchor…a 45 lbs Manson Supreme (Rocna type), the only anchor approved by Lloyds of London (stamped right on it!!!!).
We had a lovely happy hour on board Heart Beat last evening as well as a knot tying seminar….promised I’d go back today re refresher course.
We are back ensconced in HT and swinging from our mooring….it is very windy about 25-30 knt ….Sharon and I have a date this morning to go to the coffee house (aka internet café) with our laptops to have a blogging session…and maybe a cappuccino… yum!!!
