We entertained Angela & Christoph from Ithaka & Bert & Tina from Festina Lente, both German couples who had never had Christmas turkey roast… how surreal eating a full roast dinner in 30 degrees!!! We found a Leader Price supermarket which was well stocked and cheap, getting to it was fun as we read the route was by taking the dinghy down a mangrove river. This was followed by a 10 minute walk…. to find the supermarket had its own dinghy dock and we didn’t need to walk !! Still, we gave our guests a christmas day to remember 🙂
We had arranged to spend New Years eve with Steve & Helen from Allegrini back in Rodney Bay which was a win win as Caroline’s sister was flying in also for a 2 week holiday with us, her first time sailing!
Pontoon party ensued with a couple of gatecrashers and 4 ARC+ yachts still in the marina. After pre loading with alcohol, we all headed off to the boardwalk bar expecting live music and a party atmosphere, sadly it was all a bit subdued. Apparently the party atmosphere was on the beach where we weren’t…. note to self to check first next year for the lively place to be🤷🏻♂️
