This morning, the lobster man came by. That's right, the lobster man. Sort of like a milk man, except he brings lobster. We purchased six spiny lobster tails for $20! they went into the freezer, as we already had dinner plans for this evening.
Marilyn got a dozen of the boaters at Blue Water Marina to go on a brief ferry ride to South Bimini Island, and hike about a half mile to the Thirsty Turtle Bar and Grill for lunch.

After lunch, we hiked further to the Bimini Sands development. It used to be a resort and marina, but it went private condo, and the owner's association is still figuring out what to do with the resturant, bar, and marina. Bimini Sands shows up on the charts as "Pink Townhouses" because they are visible from a long way out on the water!

|Hey, who let these guys in?!|
|Their harbor is well protected from everything except Westerlies.|
That evening there was a pot-luck cookout at the marina for all the boaters. We grilled fresh wahoo fillets than had been given to us earlier by one of the powerboaters who had caught more than he had room for in his coolers. It was delicious! Life is good.
