January in the Bahamas

Marsh Harbour, The Bahamas

After a quiet Christamas in Treasure Cay it was time to explore some more of the Abacos. We visited a few Islands, this photo was on Lynyard Cay in the way to Little Harbor, home of Petes Pub, where we enjoyed a nice lunch and some punch or two.

The weather in the Abacos at this time of year was fine most of the time, but surprisingly chilly when the North wind blew.

Luckily when the weather was not so good we had present to play with from Christmas

For New Years eve we were back in Green Turtle Cay. Richards treated us to dinner at the yacht club.

New Years day saw the Junkanoo parade. Traditionally the slaves of the origional settlers were given very little time off, one days a year, usually new years day, so they celebrated. The tradition continues as parades and festivals all over The Bahamas. The parade consists of bright costumes and most of the participants banging loud drums. Just what you need with a new years day hangover.

The proceding were organsied in laid back Island style.

When the weather was fine we had time to test the new hammock.

We also visited Hope Town and Great Guana Cay, then returned to Marsh Harbour for Richard to catch his return flight.
