Herb and Linda have been together for a little over a year and are what we would describe as a "colorful couple". Herb is not shy about sharing their exploits, some times at Linda's embarrassment, and has quite a background. An Austrian, Herb shared tales of the Nazis and WWII, serving aboard the Bounty, the sailing vessel recently demised during Hurricane Sandy, and starting a Ministry for Wayward Boys. Herb has fought with sharks and Colombian drug runners, and has an arsenal onboard even our friend Jay would envy. He has a lovely singing voice and is entertaining without it.
Our Christmas Dinner aboard Utopia was nothing less than a feast. Herb prepared enough Christmas Schnitzel, as Arlene termed it, for the Bahamian Army, along with the best and unusual potato salad ever. Herb and Linda regaled us with songs Herb had composed and some extemporaneous jamming. Quite a delightful evening shared with new friends, and more Christmas memories in the Bahamas.
