Wow! Welcome to the high life.
Early this morning, we dinghied in to Minn's Water Sports and picked up the pick up truck that we have use of while we are house sitting. We loaded our clothes, rum, weasels and computers into the truck and then drove down to Bailey's house, about 10 miles south of town.
After a 15 minute briefing, we waved good-bye to Bailey and his wife and sent them on their way towards Canada. See you guys in 7 weeks or so.
It took us a good two hours to unload the truck and settle into our new digs, but by 11 am we were officially moved in. We celebrated with a couple of cold cut subs which we ate on our veranda over looking Man-O-War Bay and the Exuma Sound beyond.
After eating and quick showers (editors note: with real, unlimited hot water) we got back in the truck and drove back to the dinghy. We then motored back to Dream Catcher, picked up anchor and sailed across the harbour to St. Francis's mooring field. We picked up ball number 9 and then spent 2 hours securing the boat.
By 3 pm we were headed back across the harbour in "GrouperStyle" where I dropped Amy off at the market. She went in and picked up some veggies and orange juice and then drove the truck back to our new temporary home, while I took the dinghy down the backside of Crab Cay and then across the "haul over" and around behind Man-O-War cay and on to Bailey's dock.
By the time I had the dinghy secure, Amy was already back and unpacked. We agreed on a simpler of dinner of steak and potatoes, cooked on a real, full sized, electric stove and oven. I think dinner was good, but I'm not sure as we both passed out from exhaustion as soon as we were done eating.
More to follow, end of line ....
