Visitors who have come to spend time with us and survived :)

Who: Terry, Mary, Clara, and Jacob Hearst

When: April 2012

Their story:

We arrived on a spectacular sunny Wednesday, greeted by hugs, a dingy ride and tail wags. Terry and I took over Derek's room, Clara was in the spare room and Jacob will sleep on the converted table/bench. Lunch of sandwiches (on homemade bread) was served by the Admiral and staff. The "What If" relocated across the bay and we went for a walk on the beach. The tender footed, white skinned Minnesotans discovered a need for sunscreen and footwear - at least for the time being. The next day we took a walk up to a monument, Sam in tow but Oso stayed on the beach. Then we battened down the hatches and sailed to Leaf Cay. (The landlubbers of the crew were a bit green.)

 

The next couple of days were filled with snorkeling, feeding iguanas, kayaking and great conversation. The night before Easter, we made our own construction paper baskets and the morning they were filled with candy - so glad the Easter Bunny can manage a dingy. We had an Easter Egg hunt on the beach - great fun. The Admiral and crew worked hard to provide a full experience, including a spectacular lightning storm, sailing through high waves, dingy rides, a few bug bites, conch and shell hunting, beach walking, haircuts and lots of R&R.

 

The food was great - homemade bread, raspberry dessert, cinnamon rolls, grilled burgers, taco bake, pancakes, brownies and more. We spent evenings on the deck watching the stars, telling stories, playing word games and playing cards. The last night we had dinner in George Town, enjoying the taste of conch fritters and other delicacies. We had such a wonderful time!
