And last but not least Chris and Cynthia on New Years Eve having a good time. Skinny Legs closes at 9:00 PM (which is after all what is called ‘Cruiser Midnight) so they brought around a free bottle of Champaign at about 8:30…then the table next to ours did not want theirs so…we got two, darn the luck. Fun was had by all.
We parted company shortly and the crew of Minx and Silhouette had reservations for four at Skinny Legs in Coral Bay. This of course is Mike and Mark.
On Christmas Day our old friends Miles and Anne aboard s/v Karina come for a quick visit. They hadn’t seen most of the refit we completed and were anxious to visit. They could not stay long as they had to get back to Nanny Cay and (look out I am getting ready to use a 4 letter word...you might want to close your eyes) WORK.
Right in the middle of ‘cookie baking day, the skipper decided he wanted to move so two days later we finished off the task…this shows the remnants of decorating the cutout cookies and you can see the tree in the background.
Then it was time to make some Christmas cookies. Only three kinds this year, Russian Teacakes, cutout sugar cookies and Chocolate biscotti baked only once due to customer requirements – Mark and Cynthia like soft cookies. Here we are working on the teacakes
We had a catastrophic failure with our old digital camera and so do not have any photos to add to the blog after Antigua…in St. Martin we found and purchased a new one – yeah back in business!
We found a nice place for dinner in St Martin one evening but I’ll be darned if I can remember the name now. I could get off my butt and dig the cruising guide out of the bilge and look it up but it is 5:00 AM and I don’t feel like it
