2016-06 Friends in the Bahamas

May/June 2016

We continued to enjoy Cat Island where we met some more new friends, Peter and Donna. They have a house right on the beach at Bennett’s Harbour and invited us over for a wonderful dinner. We enjoyed getting to know them and invited them on board Shear Madness for coffee before we departed for Staniel Cay.

We were excited to head to Staniel as a group of Nordhavn’s were planning to converge for an unofficial rendezvous. This would be a chance to reconnect with some old friends and meet some who so far have only been virtual friends.

We were not disappointed! We had a great time with old friends Martin and Stephanie on the 60-foot Blossom, Allain and Michelle on the 62-foot Mahara, and Laust on the 76-foot L’Adagio. It was also wonderful to finally meet Jennifer and Mark on the 46-foot Starlet (the Cover Girl of the 2016 Nordhavn calendar!) and Robbie and Jo on the 47-foot Southern Star.

The ensuing days were great fun, consisting of much eating, drinking, snorkeling, diving, spearfishing, hiking, boat tours, story telling, a beach party and general exploring. Laust flew his drone and got some great video of all the boats (I will soon publish on Youtube – stay tuned!) A convoy of four Nordhavns traveled together from Staniel Cay  to Shroud Cay and then on to Highbourne Cay.

Be sure to check out the latest book reviews – and please send me your recommendations!

    Looks like so much fun! All the Nordhavn’s look awesome. For the first time, my wife recently said, “we should sell everything and live on a boat for the first part of our retirement”. So who knows…. maybe someday we’ll be in the pictures 🙂

    Kathy – Is your birthday Sunday? Loved the pics and the update. Have not received one for awhile. As for book recommendations, here is one, “Art of the Deal”. I read it in the 90s but reread it with a different lens…..Be safe!!! Sandy B.
