Two tracking on the golf cart
Feb 22, 2011
Saturday, March 26 - Back on the golf cart at 9 a.m. and we toured the island for the next 6 hours. We stopped at Leeward Yacht Club which is right in front of where we are moored to check out their rates. The place is gorgeous and they have a weekly rate of only $125. That's only $8 more than what we are paying to sit at a mooring with no amenities onshore and old docks. Leeward Yacht Club has a fresh water swimming pool and tiki bar and grill, laundry facilities, showers and a marina store. Our mooring ball costs us $10 a day, so for only $8 more a day we get all this. We were lucky, they had 2 slips left so we moved the boats over later in the day. Meanwhile we rode up and down the two tracks and went to White Sound to check out the two marinas there, Green Turtle Club and Bluff House marina. We saw Conchtown Lady anchored in the bay and Free Spirit at the marina. We continued on up and down and around and around on these dusty roads through the Poisonwood trees, and up on bluffs overlooking the turquoise Sea of Abaco and the deep blue Atlantic. Back into New Plymouth for lunch at the "Wreckin' Tree Bakery & Restaurant" we ran into the Conchtown Lady gang again. We moved our boats to the yacht club in the late afternoon and plugged in our power cord. This is the first time since we arrived at West End on Feb. 22 that we have electricity. Every day and night we have been using our generator to keep the boat's batteries charged so we could run our small freezer and refrigerator, the hot water heater, use our computer and radio and charge our camera batteries . We also used our gimbled oil lamp and a candle. But now we're plugged in and the stereo is on and we don't have to run the generator at all.
