We are now in Green Turtle Cay where we will be for a few days. There is a "blow" expected tomorrow night, and it is expected to howl over 30 knots. So, we have picked up a mooring and hope it is well founded. It was the last one, and a bear to get a hold of. With the help of Ed on Midwatch, we picked up the mooring chain, then walked with Ed and Beep to see this beautiful island. We checked out the two restaurants and their menus for tonight, New Year's Eve. At $100 a head, it is a tad beyond our budget (although Peter
doesofficially retire effective today).
Today we will explore Black Sound (we are in White Sound here). At 4:00 there is a hors d' pot luck on the beach for all the boats here in the harbor. There is a Junkanoo here tomorrow midday, and hopefully the cold front will hold up.
Pictured is Peter, as his blackberry has no signal he will try anything for a final call to the office.
OH! Ed from Midwatch turned us on to Skype, an internet service that will allow us to make phone calls for 2 cents a minute (as compared to nearly $3/ currently). We downloaded the software and borrowed Midwatch's headset to place a few calls, it works great! But, we will need an internet connection and our own headset, which I have ordered to be shipped to our first visitors in a few weeks. Way cool.
