So, we’re still stuck in Bimini, waiting to cross to West Palm Beach. Sadly we are still waiting for Aeolus** to smile upon us. It appears that he will be sending fair winds from tomorrow and we will probably be heading to the US on Saturday. The last few days it has been blowing around 18 knots consistently from the E/NE – unfavorably for the trip.
We spend our time wandering around Alicetown, going to the beach, talking to other cruisers and eating lobster!
Yesterday we met an Australian couple, Carol and Terry, who are from the western side of Australia. They sold their home and bought a boat in Annapolis last year and have spent till now, fitting it out and traveling down the ICW and finally made it across the Gulf stream a few days ago. Sold him my Hawaiian sling as I have no further use for it!!
Wandering along the western beach of Bimini we came across another wreck – guess this is what happens if you don’t pay attention!! On the western side, the beach and sea are still idyllic as it is protected from the wind. So we keep working on our sun tans!!
In the meantime we buy, yes buy, lobsters from a local fishing boat at $30 for a dozen!! Cheaper than going out and diving for them myself!! So we have lobster salad, lobster in bread rolls, lobster fettuchini, lobster……
Ah well, it’s a hard life….
