Bahama Mama

This year getting on the interwebz has not been as easy as it has been in the past. So while I have access and power (always grateful for power in Bahama) I figured I'd post this photo of  to gaze upon. It is a sunrise at Mangoes Marina.  When I return to the states when I'll give a better accounting of my time here.

And then life went bonkers...

This has been a crazy summer.  I will be happy when life settles down once more.  Every time it seems as if it is about to settle, something erupts.  The latest is on the work front.  What can you do but just keep smiling.  = )

I walk Chester during the wee hours of the morning and there are two bright stars (Yes Doug, planets) and I've meant to find out more about them.  Venus and Jupiter - they stand one above the other in the morning sky and it is quite spectacular.

On July 14 I guess the moon will join the line up and is supposed to look something like this.
That's the morning I fly out to meet up with DH for two weeks of relaxation.  After this summer I am major going to need those two weeks. 

It's a lame blog post but there you have it.  If the gods are kind the next will be from the Bahamas.

And they made it...

Wow  - I've been a very bad blogger.  Oops.

Before I share pictures from their trip accross the ocean I have to tell you how sad I was on Saturday.  It was the last day of Chocolate Boot Camp and I hadn't signed up for July because I am going to be out of the country for two weeks.  Doesn't mean I won't be writing, I just won't always have access to the internet.

After two months the thought of not thinking about chocolate made me sad. =...(
But I asked if I could play even it I couldn't always update and I got a thumbs up.  YaY!!

Okay now for the fellas and their crossing.

They dodged a storm but did experience a microburst.  The winds went from 10  to 48 knots in 60 seconds.  There was some scrambling to reef the sails I can tell you!! That or hanging on for dear life.

They left the Chesapeake Bay during rush hour apparently and there was a ton of ship traffic that they had to dodge.  That is always - interesting.  Especially when I'm at the helm and DH is below.... I get a bit nervous, so I'm glad that it was them and not me. ;)

DH loves to drag a line when he's in the ocean and this time was no different.  Here's a close up of a fish one of the crew caught. 

Martin's Fish

One of the other crew members caught a fish too.  I'm thinking he used Martin's bait, er I mean fish to entice this bad boy.
Trevor's Fish

No trip is complete without Dolphins dancing with the bow 

or a sunset.

Tomorrow they are off to explore the islands and see what wonders they can find.
