Random Fun Times

Do you ever wonder what we do for fun here on Long Island (Bahamas), when we are not busy building our house? Here are some pics of island life and fun with all the great people we've met here. The photo above shows a rainbow after a thunderstorm. We took the pic from our boat in Thompson Bay anchorage.
There are wild chickens, roosters, and goats on the beach in our anchorage. Every morning at 4AM, we are serenaded by dueling roosters, surround sound crowing...
This is the beautiful church on the hill overlooking our favorite anchorage.
A daily scene for the last month. This excavator is working on expanding the government dock in the settlement of Salt Pond.
A space shuttle launch in April created this phenomenal cloud to the West of the island.
Our cat, Jack ,lounging under the solar panel back on the boat...
Pretty sunset, our ocean view from the boat.
Drinking games seem to be an international past time. This one included Bahamians, Mexicans, Kiwis, Americans, and Italians.

Awwwwww, we're color coordinated and everything!

The Italian free divers made us dinner, and it was so good!
Enjoying the sunshine and eating oranges with Brittany at the Vertical Blue 2010 Free Diving Competition.

Brian and Arthur gearing up for a spearing mission.
Charlie wants to go too.
Cleaning fish after a successful hunting/spearing trip.
At Midway for Happy Hour on Friday night, enjoying drinks with friends.
Yes, we know, we're matching again, pretty cheesy isn't it?
Kitty on the roof of a palapa...
Boys skipping rocks at sunset.
Kitties on the beach, watching the sunset.
Dogs taking a sunset swim...

Cinco de Mayo party!It was a costume party, here some folks are tearing into the pinata.
I have no idea why I look like this, no recollection at all. We look shocked!
Jeanie still hasn't gotten over the shocking scene before us... Most of this crew are our neighbors!
Yummy! I made the Mexican Mac 'n Cheese!
Festive dresses for all!
A Mayan queen and her king!

Zorro and Zorro-ette?
The host and hostess... he's a tasty margarita (that's a salt rim headband) and she's a lovely burrito!
More happy, festive ladies...
I think these guys are feeling the tequila jello shooters.
Ok, shifting gears to the shark feeding dive that Brian went on to safety dive for our mermaid friend, Linden Wolbert of Mermaids In Motion. They were shooting footage for a 20/20 segment called "Superhumans" that will be airing on June 1st. That is a bite taken out of the bucket!
Nice grey reef sharks!
Nice mermaid!

That's it for this blog post! Catcha later!

  1. What great pictures. We're always looking forward to seeing the Bahama life! Your last post regarding your new home is really cool too. Congratulations! We're here near your home town in Slidell, LA keeping an eye on the oil spill. So sad! Hopefully we'll still be able to sail our boat next year to the Bahamas as planned.
