Happy to be Here

I have to admit, there were a few moments when I thought it just wasn’t worth it. Those moments passed quickly. Yesterday, as we were preparing to go for a swim in the pool, I realized I was happy to be here in the Bahamas. We have had two full nights of sleep since we arrived. We spent yesterday cleaning the thick crust of salt off of the boat. I wiped down the enclosure panels and put them away for the winter. We did laundry and put away the long underwear. George was preparing to put the dinghy together and drop it in the water until he realized there isn’t enough room between our boat and the catamaran beside us to drop the dinghy in the water. It will have to wait. 
Today we walked into town and picked up a few fresh foods at the grocery store. Later we walked to a local restaurant, Colors by the Sea, for a good Bahamian lunch. We are ready to move on as soon as the wind subsides. We plan to visit Treasure Cay, Green Turtle Cay and possibly Hopetown. The timing and order depends on the wind and the tides. If the wind doesn’t subside until tomorrow afternoon it may be too close to low tide to leave the slip. In that case we will wait until the next day to leave. We both feel more patient this year compared to last year since we now realize there is plenty of time to see what we want to see.
