Emerald Bay, Exumas 23º46.7N | 76º5.11W
|Church in Rolleville, Great Exuma.|
What do cruisers do when they have a car? Provision! But not before taking care of business -- and breakfast.
Dale (Jessie Marie), sweet guy that he is, noticed that the workbench on Sea Gal is in a part of the boat with only about five feet of headroom, about a foot and a half too short for Barney, so he decided to donate a stool to the cause.
In a replay of yesterday, we stood on shore howling, whistling and waving, this time with a stool.
|Karen and Dale hailing Sea Gal.|
Barney came over in the dinghy, and, always one to entertain, he didn't disappoint.

Next order of business: breakfast. We drove along Great Exuma with visions of omelets and toast and bacon dancing in our heads. The Bahamians clearly had a different vision that ran more toward sheep's tongue and pig's feet. Soup.
|AWESOME. If you like souse for breakfast.|
The guys decided to go in whole hog, so to speak.
Dale had pig's feet.
Chip had sheep's tongue.
I chickened out and had chicken.
And you were wondering why I found breakfast blog worthy. We eked through the souse, just that once, but found the Johnny cakes spectacular, somewhere between bread and cake. Yum.
Finally, we hit the supermarkets. Real, well-stocked supermarkets, our first in seven weeks, where you can even shop from a list.
Living large -- and well provisioned.
|No, Chip's not picking up extra cash, he's carrying our purchases |
from the liquor store (which did not include any wine).
|TWO dock carts of groceries.|
