January 16-17, 2010... Alabaster Bay
On Sunday we got up and kayaked south out of Alabaster Bay around the point to Billings Bay and then walked across the point to look at Holms Bay. The SW winds were blowing so the outbound crossing had been a little rough, but we were rewarded with a big push on the way back to the boat. We started some maintenance and other chores after lunch, including cleaning the boot stripe. Looks like that will take some good elbow grease; we'll have to attack that again sometime. But the deck was beckoning. The sun was out and the weather was warm, so reading and sunbathing was Patti's after chores choice. John read, but in the shade. Sunday night was a real treat. Cocodimama had a band playing, so we had drinks on the balcony and then shared a light dinner with Ilona and Vytus, who we had met a couple of days before at Glass Window. They were terrific company, the music was great, and we got to dance a little, and still made it back even though we had forgotten to leave on the anchor light and couldn't see the boat! (a real stupid people trick...) We decided to leave the next day as the winds were shifting and we no longer were in the lee in Alabaster Bay.
