As you can see Tracey doesn't mind being on the water. The tragedy is that she hates being in it so we drift/row around and she looks into the water through a bathiscope which is just brilliant as its like snorkelling without getting wet!

George Town
So, here we are anchored off George Town where we have been for a few days waiting for our daughter Liv and boyfriend Adam to come and visit for a fortnight. Its been good fun, lots of swimming, walking and jobs on board.

A rest
As you can see from the picture we are in a stunning anchorage and there is a really nice watering hole to go with it. Cape Santa Maria resort, Long Island Bahamas has made us very welcome and we have chosen to stay at anchor here for a few days to relax.

'RELAX' I hear you say 'RELAX' and with good reason but perceptions never quite marry up with reality do they. For sure we have had the trip of our lives so far and wouldn't change it for the world. But it's been pretty full on for we left Europe just over two months ago and in that time, we have done 32 nights at sea and all two handed. I've just worked it out and we have averaged the equivalent of Salcomb to Guernsey on a daily basis! I think Tracey is a proper sailor now!

With that in mind I trust you will understand why we need to stop, recharge, potter and catch up with all those jobs that get set aside when busy. I am doing a full engine service with new impeller this afternoon and went up the mast this morning amongst other little jobs. We have caught up with washing the big stuff like sheets and towels - the rest is done by hand on a daily basis. I have dived on the bottom to scrub it and check the anodes and prop.

Up till now we have had an afternoon nap for having done the heavy lifting and eased up its all caught up with us. Time is now filled with the pleasure of being able to pop ashore for a big meal or a midday cold one. We had pancakes this morning with a mix given to us by Linda and Bob who we have become friends. The pancakes were dripping in Maple Syrup donated by our friends JP and Joan who are anchored just by us.

Bob is a keen pilot and yesterday morning he gave us a personal fly by at the anchorage. It was such a thrill and we look forward to taking them for a sail when we get to Nantuket or before. We always thought that the people we meet would be a big part if this trip and it's nice to see this to be the case.

Tonight, we are hosting drinks on 'Pearl' at sunset with JP, Joan, Matt and Lyn who sailed in yesterday. Matt has been diving on the reef and caught a bucket of Lobster so they will be bringing fresh Lobster Canapes - let's hope we get the green flash to go with it.
