March 15-18, 2016 New dinghy arrived and St. Patrick's Day Parade

our new to us dinghy is arriving in tow, back to Modaki,
this saved us a trip lugging the motor by land

this young Bahamian was very nice .. Joe tipped him for delivering it to us .. they use the motor as a seat, when driving

out with the old and

in with the new

celebrating , lobster for me

pork chops for Joe

the next day we took the dinghy back because of another leak, so we had to wait Bahamian
style for hours and hours … so next best thing is to visit Curly Tails on the upper deck for drinks, Modaki is now at anchor, that small boat just at the stern of the cat in the right

St. Paddys Day and Paper Bird and Unicorn drop in for a visit
on their way to the parade

the grand marshal of the parade, the one and only Barefoot Man … on left

the parade has started, see Joe at the bottom

the dark clouds did not stop the fun

Ray our favourite Marina Manager at Mangoes

the first stop is free beer at Sands

next was Jello Shooters at Wally's Restaurant

then in to Snappas, for rum punch .. all free
here we met Janis and Cam , Te Amor, from Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia

lots of free music

even the Bare Foot Man played a few songs, and invited everyone over to Guana Cay the next day
for a free concert on Friday and paid on Saturday

our friends in Escape Velocity, Finola and Harry .. we seem to be traveling some what together this
year, we met in the Exumas, Spanish Wells, Abaco's… good friends from last year also

we decided to escape the wind parties and moved to outside
Hope Town for the night

Elbow Cay Lighthouse to our bow

still lots of maintenance on the boat, the BBQ was falling apart and Joe bought new brackets, see
back of picture .. all fixed up again

this picture got missed …
it is Bill and Lauren, on Sea Star, they are from Meaford, Ontario, their Neice and Nephew flew in
for a visit …
