Time got away from me yesterday -- no excuse just too busy doing little.
The forecast looked ominous for Wednesday with strong winds and Silver Lake has a reputation for poor holding so we moved into one of the PArks slip. Not too bad. An easy landing, not crowded and only $1.25 a foot with $3 a day for electricity. We will stay 2 days.
Just puttered around the boat and went for some short walks around the lake since the skies looked like rain and the forecast was for 60% chance -- none came during the daylight hours but it stayed cloudy all day.
Craig came over a visited awhile and then about 3pm a large cruising ketch came in and anchored -- hey it was LIAHONA with Mark and Willie aboard. We crossed paths with them many times in the Abacos this last winter. In fact it was the first cruising boat I saw when Rachel, Diva, and I crossed into the Bahamas on December 21. Liahona had just cleared customs that day at Spanish CAy and passed us on our way to GTC.
Small world. I talked to them briefly and gave them the 30 second verbal tour of Silver Lake with a promise to meet up soon for a longer visit. They are on their way South after going all the way to Newfoundland this summer. Now that is a VERY long trip.
Karen fixed a couple of Fococcis for dinn er and Craig and Dovie came over and enjoyed it with us.
We then spent the rest of the evening playing Farkle. Oh I won 3 of the 4 games -- I was lucky!! And I didn't even keep score!!
I adjusted lines just before going to bed.. It was dead calm and the sky was clear!! We should have traveled today. The weatherman missed again.
