Happy New Year from Green Turtle Cay

The pot luck was great and we met many new friends. Fireworks welcomed in the New Year. On New Year's Day we all attended Junkanoo (pictures to follow when the signal permits). Junkanoo is a parade with the locals dressing in costumes and performing dances to cowbells and horns. Restaurants had food stalls and booze tables, fried conch and goombay smashes, etc. Met up with a lot of folk we had seen in Lake Worth and Manjack. Finished the day off with Happy Hour at Pineapples and more fireworks.

Now, the blow has arrived and we are snug on our mooring. Several boats have dragged their anchors, and reset or taken a slip. Tonight we are having Debbie and Bill on Debra Lee, our mooring neighbor in for cocktails. It seems the wind is picking up, although it is sunny and blue skies. I am, however, sitting here in a fleece, but there is no evidence of snow, sleet, or ice.

I have been having frustrations with internet signals. Everyone seems to be able to pickup the Coconut signal for free, except for me and our fancy signal extender. So, this is the fourth attempt at a blog update, this time without a photo.

Happy New Year.
