All, I know, is that I am jealous as hell of anyone who is about to head to the Bahamas in their boat right now.

As soon as we can get away again......

Ha!! The silly girl was not my daughter, but my GF!! She (and I) are fully capable of being stupid silly, as was the case last night. But I did not end up in the water...

Munching dinner on the back deck at Ft. P now. Storm passed and now it pleasantly cool.

Wifey B: Not currently planning on hitting Newfoundland this trip. We are far far east and some north vs. London, just not quite that far. Making notes for the future though.

We are at the almost end of out four week Bahamas and I’ll tell you I have no intention of adding up the bills because this has been a good trip and that might ruine it. LOL

I have a few observations about this trip but let me tell you how much I love the watermaker, long showers and we can hose down the boat. I think we have made over five hundred gallons. (I remember the three of us cruised three weeks in the Bahamas on sixty gallons of water, true we cooked with beer and brushed our teet with beer)

Wifey B: On a boat, yes. But doing a lot of land touring in vans. Just spent three days in Halifax. Had an incredible time in Nova Scotia as we did try to see all the sights we could. Getting more in today from Port Hawkesbury. Exploring north. Currently eating lunch in Sydney.

Were truly shocked by the Harbor in Halifax. Had no idea how large, how deep, or how active.

Everyone here complaining about a "warm and humid airmass" and we're all so thrilled by "normal" temperatures and humidity.

We really want to have a water maker on board on our next trip to the Bahamas.

A watermaker is a life changer, I truly appreciate it. It great to have the best tasting water and a limitless supply.

Yep, the water hunt, and having to buy bottled, gets old when down there.

I used to get so jealous watching one of our neighbor boats power washing his boat with fresh water last trip.

Wifey B: I can't deal with restricted showering. Therefore, watermaker a must.

Wifey B: True but sometimes they run very long. Takes a while just to wash my hair and we have others aboard who take long showers too. We do our part to conserve though. Well, sort of. When you have multiple people in a shower sometimes it goes longer.
