Just a quick note to let you know that we are still alive and happy in the Abacos! The weather here has been delightful – 85 daytime and 68 at night.
We have had some company and right now our son Steve is aboard for a couple of days. Yesterday the three of us snorkeled over Mermaid Reef near Marsh Harbour. Today we will travel a few miles to Great Guanna Cay and dive another reef there. He has to fly out again on Thursday, so we must cram in as much as possible in a few days.
After he leaves, we will relax a couple of weeks and then head back towards to US coast. We will make our way north-west through the upper cays of the Abacos and then jump off for Florida, traveling as far north as the gulf stream will carry us. Once we get there, I will be able to start doing individual messages again as phone connections will be faster and cheaper!
I hope everyone is well and enjoying the spring weather.
