Friday, February 2nd to Monday, February 12th
The weather has been windy and rainy since we got here, so we haven’t been able to get off the dock. Regardless, we’ve been enjoying Hope Town and all the fun people we meet here. Lee is feeling much better and is pretty much back to normal. Yeah! We keep busy with boat chores and just hanging out. Randy has been doing lots of varnishing and waxing. Silver Maple is looking great!

Randy’s work pays off! Table looks amazing!

Good news! This week, the weather has changed! It’s been gorgeous so we take a trip down to Lynyard Cay and Tahiti Beach.

Next week we have visitors coming, Stacia, Paul, and their kids Celia and Andrew from Ann Arbor, MI. It will be cozy with all of us on the boat, but should be really fun. Looking forward to it! Yeah!

Gorgeous pictures! The shades of the water are amazing!
The manatee looks very friendly. Lee, I’m glad to hear that you are painting, you are in such a great environment to be inspired each day. Make sure you post pictures of your paintings!
Randy, your attention to detail and fine craftsmanship is very obvious in your recent work on the Silver Maple.
