It’s hard to believe that 2.5 months have gone by since we launched Sea Change in Titusville, Florida. It’s been quite a trip!
The last two days in George Town have been recuperation time, and an opportunity to enjoy the sailing regatta which began two days before our arrival here. We reconnected with friends from The Land and Sea Park – Georgie, Larry and their 22-year-old daughter Alysha on Cabernet – here on Exuma for the first time.
Yesterday, I attended the variety show, which attracts talent from both the sailing and the local community – amazingly good performances (especially the locals!). I tried my hand in a conch-blowing contest – didn’t win but felt good about the effort. The winner blew his conch for 38 seconds – that’s a lot of hot air!!
Today, I took the Cabernet crew on their first hike up Monument Hill, and down to the dramatic crashing waves on the ocean beach below. There we had a picnic lunch, sheltered from the howling wind by huge rock formations. It's always fun to show people around what feels like our other home. Jeff chose to stay aboard and rest.
A visit to “Chat and Chill” on Stocking Island for their weekly pig roast on the beach ended the day today. Tomorrow we begin to close up the boat for another year – so this will likely be my last post for this trip. It’s been quite a ride – I hope you’ve enjoyed reading these posts as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them. Until next year …
