After we did DC, we headed down the coast to the Green Cove Springs Boat yard for a haul out, which was long overdue. We spent 6 WEEKS in the boatyard. I won't get into the grisly details, but I will say, that we took a break around Thanksgiving and went to NEW YORK CITY!!!! for the MACY'S DAY PARADE!!! I was literally on the curb AND IT SNOWED!!!!! I hadn't seen snow in 6 years and I was enthralled. After our New York Thanksgiving, we went to Cape Cod. We had a second BIG DINNER on the Saturday after Thanksgiving to spend time with our family. I have to say it was pretty darn good Thanksgiving. (both of them). We headed back to the boat, did more miserable boatyard stuff, got splashed, blah blah blah. Then we were free! We headed to Miami had a good Gulf Stream crossing, and BAM!! we are in the Bahamas. We are in Georgetown right now. We just finished the Regatta. I got third place again in kayaking. We are waiting for a weather window to head south.
