|Sunset in Marsh Harbour|
So...remember how happy we were to have the macerator installed? That thing that pumps the poo from our holding tanks out to sea? Well....we already had a macerator malfunction. Grrrr!!!! Of course, we don't realize there is a problem until the tank is full & we're out sea ready to dump it. Scott turned the switch & nothing. The motor was trying to run but couldn't & after about 6 seconds it would shut itself off. Uh oh. That can mean only one thing....it's clogged somewhere. Gross. Poor Scott. He had to take it apart....which means getting up close & personal with poo. Sometimes living on a sailboat is so NOT glamorous.
|Scott is about to dive in & see if the thru hole where the macerator dumps out of on the outside is clogged. I think his face says it all.|
We'll be hanging out in Marsh Harbor for a few days & then island hopping over to Hopetown. Tonight we are going to a "rake & scrape". That's a band that uses things like saws, spoons, bells, bongos to make some awesome island tunes. Very excited for that!

|This is what the whole conch looks like. Looks super gross but fixed up like a ceviche....yum. Also, battered up & fried "Conch fritters" ....a Bahamian classic!|
|Love this sign|

Our hearts are breaking as the news comes in regarding the school shooting in Connecticut. Our prayers go out to all those children & parents who are in their darkest hour. Mother Mary....pray for us now.....
