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.
