Boring Update

Well, we've been "stuck" in George Town, Bahamas for the past week. The weather this month has been abysmal. May is supposed to be the last nice, calm weather before hurricane season which officially starts in 3 days, but Kaleidoscope has spent it scurrying from anchorage to anchorage hiding from the blasting East winds and squalls.

It's all OK, though. We all like George Town, and we've been able to supply all of our energy needs with wind power for the week. Plus, I got to do some pretty nice windsurfing.

We've spent a lot of time on the beach chatting with other sailors and playing beach volleyball. On 3 nights, the cruisers got together for 20 person poker tournaments at the local resort. Kaleidoscope won all 3, with Josh winning 2 and Brad winning the other.

It looks like the weather is calming down, so we're going to head out tomorrow. We'll most likely spend a week or so hitting some remote Bahamian islands keeping a very close eye on the weather, and then it's across the Gulf Stream to Florida.

Regarding those pictures, all the good ones are on Forest's camera, which we cannot connect to this computer, unfortunately. We'll post them in webshots when we get home.

    Who is that lunatic in picture jumping or dangling high in the sky? and don't the other cruisers warn others about the poker sharks on K? Rabbit rabbit Dan. Happy start of hurricane season and stay out of their reach. Love Mom

    Forest, is that you up in the sky? Or is it a bird or a plane? I was obsessing about your saftey the other night with al the high winds but then let it go knowing that you all will make safe decisions (as this photo so clearly demonstrates.)
    Really, I'm thrilled you are all having the time of your life. Be safe for real with the weather, Mother Nature doesn't play. We'll look for3ward to seeing you home safe and sound, until then play away!
    PS What does boring mean anyway?

    The lunatic in the air is me, although Forest also performed the leap. I figured an a post about staying put wouild be boring, so I put in that picture to spice it up, even though that picture was actually taken in February by Aurora.
