Carnival Weekend

Sunset at Tahiti Beach
  We sailed back to Marsh Harbour today. Another great day of sailing for Malaika. We were heeling more than we ever have. Heeling is when the boat tips to one side away from the wind. It's a bit unnerving at first. It's not a natural feeling to walk on the side of the boat instead of the floor. We are used to it by now but today was pretty dramatic & I let out a couple little screams. It's not unsafe. It's what the boat is supposed to do. It won't tip over....I just have to keep reminding myself of that sometimes.
  We had a great time at Tahiti Beach but returned to Marsh Harbour because it's like "Carnival" or "Mardi Gras" this weekend. There are lots of events scheduled including 2 Junkanoo's. We went to one for New Years & had an awesome time. I can't wait to see all the costumes!!!
Tonight the Bahama's Tourism Association is hosting a party for all cruisers. Food & drinks supplied, live music from the best Bahama bands, arts & crafts from local artists. Good Times!
  Scott continues to do weaving with palm fronds. He's been working on his hat for about a month. So today, we get anchored in Marsh Harbour & a dinghy comes right over. Turns out, it's someone we met the other night at the dinghy drift. He came to tell Scott he really loved the hat he wore @ the dinghy drift. Thought it was "super cool".

 Scott is quite proud of himself now. He's always been proud of the hat. Island life. It's awesome.
Love & Miss Everyone. XXXXOOOO  Mom & Dad..we hope to get minutes for our cell phone this weekend so we'll call as soon as we do. Love you
