It costs $100 per person per day to enjoy the attraction if you walk in but this is waived for hotel and marina guests… what a deal!!! So Gavin, Kal, Jinder, Pam and Glen went exploring Tuesday evening and enjoyed Wednesday at the attractions and pools. Just as we were deciding what to do for dinner on Wednesday a local fisherman showed up with lobster. Unfortunately for Jinder and Kal, Gavin has learned that he loves lobster!

Thursday found us back in reality at the more mundane but functional Nassau Yacht Haven. The Sarowas treated us to dinner at the Poop Deck and then we settled in for our last night. The Sarowas left us for the airport at 7 am and we spent the day puttering at the marina. It is strangely quiet when guests leave. Pam decided on an omelette for dinner – is this our parting routine?

The marina was quite full when we arrived and they put us in a slip that would have worked if we didn’t have a bowsprit or a dingy hanging on davits. We spent the first night with a flashing light hung from our bow, hoping we wouldn’t be hit by a Bahamas Divers boat or one of the local fishing charters passing by. The next day Glen moved the boat to the next dock, removed the dingy and here we sit with our davits hanging out over the dock. Leaving on Tuesday might prove to be another adventure!

Glen started our income tax, we did laundry and grocery shopping.

We had drinks with neighbours, Barb and Daryl from SeaWind II and shared docking nightmare stories. One evening we witnessed the effects of the current and tide on a big sailboat as he docked nearby bouncing off the wharf and bumping a boat. We are learning that most boaters struggle with docking.
So, another adventure has ended and we are looking forward to the next… Jen, Luke and Jackson join us on Monday to explore the Exumas from Nassau to Georgetown.
