Life at the Job room - Marsh Harbor

Well here we are again at the Job Room, eating ribs On Wed night cookout and steak night for Joy on Saturday. all of a sudden, my pc has come back to life, although it is helped by a new plug in keyboard and plug in mouse.  Looks like the water damage from the storm may not be permanent.

We are waiting for our last friend, Madonna, from Cleveland to arrive tomorrow. She will be with us for two weeks or so.  Trying to start to head back after next week.  Island Festival is next weekend at Green Turtle and we are headed there on Tuesday, which looks like a good day to cross Whale Cut.

The Whale Cut is part of the Abacos that is open to the ocean swells from Africa. It is about 2 miles of unprotected ocean , so you need to go through with low waves.

just got a flash on the Internet that Bahamas may have very strong winds next weekend.  Should be interesting.

Spend yesterday with Steve and Lisa Wallace.  Went to lunch at Sandy Point, a real small settlement at the end of Abaco Island, then an art show at a high end development, Schooner Bay, and finally trying to find the parrots at  Bahamas Palm Shores

did find the parrots

They love whatever these berries are called.

It is definitely getting to the end of the sail cruising season in the Bahamas. After a short lull, the fisher people start coming over in the big power boats.

More later on the storm coming next weekend

In the Abacos

Well it has been a while since I wrote something.  a lot has happened, all of it good except for the loss of my computer.

We had a rain shower early in the morning and we thought we had latched the center hatch tightly.  however the latch was not tight, and the water poured in, right on top od the laptop.

it already was not working properly, bad keyboard.  Nick and Sue brought me a plug in keyboard and that  worked until the rain storm.  thought it might work, packed it in rice for a couple of days, but alas, it would not turn on.

fortunately i had backed up my important files on a flashs drive.  Will get a new PC when we return to the States in mid May.

Nick and Sue came and stayed for two weeks, one week in the Blacpoint Settlement area and then one week traveling north throughout Exumas Lake and Sea  Park and flying home out of Nassau

 I have problems accessing our photos via the  blog.  So new picture ofNickand Sue.

We will be spending the month of April here in the Abacos.  One of Joy's college friends, Lisa is coming on High Spirits for a few days with her husband,SteveN.

Lisa was a bridesmaid in our wedding 45 years ago.

The at the end of April, Madonna is coming for two weeks to help us  sail back to Florida.

More later after I figured out how IPAD and blogspot work together to load up pictures.
