Lesley Squeals

I have a secret to tell today.  It is quite the case that when abroad anywhere out of the UK Lesley point blank refuses to drive any cart yet she is probably the worst back seat driver ever and often squeals at various junctions etc.  (Lesley  – of course this has nothing to do with Paul’s driving skills!)   She also squealed last time we hired an electric golf cart,  a biggie in Spanish Wells.  Well this time after the tiny amount of traffic here had died down to almost nothing I actually persuaded her to drive the buggy – this proved to me that she even gives a little squeal as we take off with her driving so the squeals are nothing personal. (Lesley- just  fun and pure delight with a hint of fairground  nervousness!)

We made our way to a little fest organised for the children’s Junkanoo  or carnival fundraiser. There wasn’t much going on or to film so after a brief wonder around we went to the nearby supermarket to top up on a few items.  We found everything we could need and more as it was very well stocked though some of the items were on the pricey side.  It was then time to go in search of dinner from one of the 4 places on the island offering food.  We had tried two and been somewhat disappointed so headed to number three.  Very similar menu and we found something to our taste but were not talking haut cuisine here.  Spanish Well is a wonderful place for many things but eating out isnt one of them

I do not think I fixed anything on the boat today but I did  more planning for the crossing of the bank to the Exumas. The last ten miles will be about 5 pm and its the last ten miles when there are scattered coral heads. I am told that with 1.5 metre draft(5ft) following the solid line Explorer charts routes should be Ok for us….. we sail on Monday morning – get fuel at 8 am and then head off.

A bit of thunder and lightening around tonight – I wish there had been more rain to wash down the salt of the boat.

The beaches here are simply fantastic and also pretty deserted…… simply wonderful scenery.
