First Day in Marsh Harbor
We arrived in Marsh Harbour on Tuesday, late afternoon because of the tide situation. We had to wait for high tide to get us safely out of Hopetown.
We arrived at Marsh Harbour Marina, also known as the Jib Room(that is the name of the restaurant). This is the right spot for us to be at. Everybody is very friendly, we learned how to play Mexican Train ( a dominoes game) in the afternoon.
In the morning we went snorkeling down at Mermaid Reef, best place so far. Hundreds of fish, helped by some oatmeal that we scattered in the water. The fish were everywhere and every color. Only a 5 minute walk from the marina.
Ron and Beverly had the dock across from us in Loggerhead Marina in Stuart, FL. They are here and we learned all about their trip. Our friends on Tomkat, Tom and Kathy are also here.
Last night was Ribs night here at the Jib Room. The place was packed. Carol and Paul Cook and some of their friends from last year came over so we had a table for 13 people out in the courtyard where the music and limbo exhibition took place.
The ribs were great. We split a full slab and had an extra side plate so it worked out perfectly for $40.
Only wish I had the camera as we have no pictures of the first day at Marsh Harbor.
Today features a dinghy ride across the harbor to the supermarket. A lady's afternoon featuring lunch out and shopping. Joy, Carol, Kathy, and Carol's friends are taking the afternoon off. I will be finding out where the ferry dock to Man O War is and filling up the diesel tanks. Plus reading a new fiction book.
