Happy New Year!

Wow! Can you believe that is is the 8th day of the new year already? Where did 2014 go? I hope it did not go to the dogs but rather that it was a year of great accomplishments and that 2015 will be a year of even greater accomplishments.

So where have we been? I think the last post made was on the 20th of December, yikes! Talk of absenteeism:((( We are hoping to pick up where we stopped so we can stay in touch with friends and family.

So the past few weeks have found us enjoying the company of my husband's brother who is visiting us from the Czech republic.

He arrived on December 22nd and is staying with us till January 14th. (I think he is the reason we haven't been posting we've spent all our time with him...poor thing he is our scapegoat lol) It has been nice having him here the kids have definitely enjoyed his company as we have, he has helped catch some lobsters, fish, and conch and has been helpful around the boat, anchoring, raising the surely has been nice to have some extra muscles around.

With my brother in law visiting, we have travelled to different Cays, snorkeled in amazing corals, harvested some delicious coconuts, and walked on some of the most white sanded beaches we've only seen in magazines. It has been fantastic! We even managed to see some islands that are owned by country music legends, film actors like Johnny Depp, Oprah and the like.

Currently we are anchored at Blackpoint Cay, it is blowing like crazy gusts of up to 25 knots, feels like we are surfing even though we are anchored. We hope the winds will die down. Blackpoint is a small island that hosts a very popular restaurant called Lorraine's restaurant, so if you are ever down here stop here for some real island fare. Behind Lorraine's restaurant, her mom makes the most scrumptious breads, the favorite one is the coconut bread one, the stuff just melts in your mouth.

We will keep you posted as soon as we know what our next destination will be. May you have great success this new year!
