Foxtown, Great Abaco

 

May 9

The winds are really light, so we are running our Code Zero (a half a spinnaker) most of the time with the motor going.  However, unfurling and furling it is taking a lot of effort.  It doesn’t seem to ever go smooth, so we are figuring out a different way to make it easier.  Will shall see!

Angie has been jonesing that bacon, blue cheese, carmelized pizza that we had back at Grand Isle when we were in Emerald Bay Marina, so decided to make one herself.  This involved a trip to town, looking for the onion.

We ended up at The Valley Bar and Grill, which is next to a fish market.  $20 for a BAG of lobsters and $10 for huge Grouper fillets.

We ended up going back to the valley for $8 hamburgers that were GOOD and came with a nice side of beans and rice, and $4 beers.  They also had the best conch fritters we have found in the Bahamas so far. Definitely worth the stop!

We had to anchor pretty far offshore, which made it difficult for Brida (Sonjare Boxer Pup) to go do her business.

We definitely would stop back through here again.
