Merry Christmas!

Posted by on December 25, 2011

(I’m guessing that I saw the sunrise before you did this morning.)

The temperature was a beautiful 81 degrees Saturday in North Palm.  We were able to buy some groceries and do some last minute “Christmas” shopping at West Marine and Diver’s Direct.  My lines are rigged and ready for the Gulf Stream, and we have a new pole spear for fishing in the Bahamas.

If all has gone well, by the time you are reading this Sabrina and I received a wonderful gift this Christmas morning – hopefully we watched the sun rise over Memory Rock in the Bahamas as we  approached the Little Bahama Bank.  If the plan holds, for Christmas dinner we’ll be anchored at Great Sale Cay, ready to check into customs on Monday and go diving!  We’ll get to spend Christmas with Sabrina’s parents who made the crossing with us from Old Port Cove.  The Christmas tree won’t be decorated till Christmas day, but we’re fine with that.

Over the last few months things grew more hectic and more rushed as the days flew by.  One thing we haven’t lost track of was how fortunate we are to have wonderful friends and family who supported us in our decision to go cruising.  We are very thankful for all the help and support we’ve received and we will miss everyone we left behind.  We are looking forward to the next time we can catch up with you all.

From our crew to yours, we hope you enjoy this Christmas day, we’ll miss you all, but we’ll see you soon….

A Colder Christmas Up North
