Fun in West End

Today is Monday, 2/25/13 and we are waiting for Jack the mechanic to come to High Spirits and fix our problem.  Two of our warning systems do not shut off after they run through test mode when you first turn on the engine. They are the oil pressure warning light and the horn on the coolant temperature alarm system.  We replaced the oil pressure sensor and checked to make sure they were not loose wires but still no solution. I can disconnect the temperature alarm system, but then it would not tell us if we overhead.

Our engine burns oil and we really need to know if we have pressure or a bad electrical issue.

Jack is bringing a mechanic pressure tester along with a oil pressure gauge to install.  Hopefully he will be here soon and not cost a fortune.

Having a good time here at Old Bahamas Bay resort on the West End of Grand Bahama Island.

At breakfast Joy meet Linda and Stephanie, two doctors on vacation, and we ended getting a ride from Stephanie to the "Catholic" church. Linda wanted to go and we tagged along.  When we got there we found out that it was the ":Anglican" church but we stayed for a 2 hour and 20 minute service.  As Doris told us last week in Bimini, the Anglican/Epis, church is "Catholic Lite"
"All the ritual, none of the guilt".

Joy, Stephanie, and Linda went out kayaking in the afternoon, then we had them over for dinner.
They are flying back to Florida today. They worked together for 5 years as Pediatric. Rehab Docs, and go on vacation together once a year or so.

Here are some pictures from the last couple of days.

On Saturday we used the resort bike's and rode down into the West End Settlement.  There we met Barry at his two stool street side bar and had a nice drink and spent time talking to him about life in West End. 

West End Settlement was  damaged by several hurricanes over the past 10 years including major flooding from Superstorm Sandy. Water was three feet deep in his building. They are a lot of buildings that are abandoned.  Currently there are two small grocery stores, one was almost totaling empty of products.

Conch salad stand across the street from Barry's bar, open on the weekend.

Some of the fellow boaters heading to the Abacos on Saturday night at the 5 pm party.
