Christmas Countdown!

This is my nephew's son.....his first Christmas...

It's Christmas Eve Eve! I can't believe it! Sorry so long between blogs. I sorta had a blog meltdown the other day when I spent 3 hours trying to post a blog only to have it mysteriously erase while publishing. Grrr... I swore off the blog forever...but I'm over it now.

We've been busy this week finalizing the Cruiser's Christmas Potluck. Due to some unexpected circumstances, Scott & I were put in charge of this big shindig. Our friends that have been putting it together for the past 15 years were not able to make it this year so.....I don't know how, but we're in charge this year. Scott has been a huge help as have other cruisers and the tradition will continue! Last year about 100 people came so it's sorta a big deal...

Meanwhile we've just been enjoying the Christmas festivities around Green Turtle. There have been Christmas concerts, golf cart parades, and just good ol' fashioned holiday cheer.

 

New Plymouth at night...this the town on Green Turtle Cay..

In between Christmas fun we still have chores to do....

Scott cleaning the bottom of the boat

Interrupted by a triggar fish that was just teasing Scott as he cleaned the boat. Scott yelled up to me to hand him his spear and....

Dinner.

Scott has really refined his hunting/spearing skills this year. This morning he got 3 lobster and then again, right by our boat he got this guy....

About a 10# Snapper...

So tomorrow should be a BUSY day putting together the last details for the party. Sooo many boats moved into the anchorage today. I'm a little nervous....hope it all goes well... We are ignoring all boat projects for now...just want to enjoy Christmas. We even got a phone set up after trying for 3 weeks....the phone lady actually showed up on Thursday...only from 9-1pm. The line was LONG (1/2 the town was there) since she had not been here in so long. But...we will now be able to call home on Christmas.

 

This is Jib's friend Snoopy. He escaped off his boat & promptly headed to Malaika to try & persuade Jib to do the same...

Hope everyone is having a blessed Holiday Season!! Hope to post again on Christmas! Love & miss you all sooo much.

Love, Michelle, Scott & Jib

So...I just tried to post this blog only to find out we have no internet right now. "Please try again later."

Hmmuph! So buy the time this posts it won't be Christmas Eve Eve anymore...etc. you get the picture.
