Happy Valentine's Day !!

Omg! I can NOT believe we are half way through February!!! It's true that time flies when you're having fun. I wanted to do a post yesterday on actual Valentines Day but just ran out of time. Our day started with re-anchoring our boat from the more protected area to the "suburbs" where all the cruisers hang out.

Look at all those masts!!

Then we went to the island and walked to the ocean beach. As I said in the last blog, despite the huge number of boats here, you do still feel like you have the beach all to yourself.

I wish it didn't show so much that I made Jib pose with me....his face tells it all! He's like "great. Another picture. Just wanna go play."

After our lovely beach hike we went diving with our friends Kath & Dan on s/v Majiks. We met them last summer in St Augustine so it's been a really fun reunion. Kath & I didn't get in the water cuz it was a little rough for snorkeling but Scott & Dan had a blast diving/hunting. The days catch was bountiful...lobster, fish, conch..the guys had to call it a day though when the sharks started showing up. More than one black tip reef shark came to "investigate" so it was time to go. The guys said the first shark they saw was 6 feet long. That doesn't sound so big but keep in mind, that's the size of an average MAN !! It's very intimidating to be in the water with creatures as big or bigger than you....especially when they are carnivors. There is this whole other universe happening in our oceans and you must respect it, know your place, & leave when the big boys come to play.

After the dive we went to "Volleyball Beach" which is the social hub here in Georgetown. It's pretty cool. There are some local stingrays that hang out here....

Jib is totally fascinated watching the stingrays...



There are also 3 beach volleyball courts & EVERY day you can play at 2pm.

And of course there is a bar...

Last night there was a spectacular Valentines Day dance(I think my first Valentines dance since JR high!) at Chat N Chill. We had so much fun dancing & meeting all the other cruisers. What a blast!


Jib looks much happier posing with Scott..

We'll probably leave here in a couple days...gotta make the most of our time here in the Exumas. We plan on heading back to Florida the 1st or 2nd week of April so.....tick tock!! Pretty soon we'll have to head north again.

Love & Miss you!!

Michelle, Scott & Jib
