This morning, Bill was ambitious, and he prepaired us a breakfast of eggs benedict! Who says boaters have to eat simply? Not us! No cold cereal breakfasts on this boat!

That evening, we walked to the Bimini Big Game Club to get dinner while watching the superbowl playoffs. Both games were a total blowout, with results going as predicted. I think this is the first TV we've watched on our trip! I've found I don't really miss it.

Back at the boat, the masthead wind sensor was reading 31 knots. But we had prepared well, doubling all the lines and adding chafe guards where needed, so things were doing fine. I checked on the lines every hour until around 3am, when the wind clocked fully around to the West. The land mass of the island now shielded us, and the wind where we were dropped to 15 knots, even though we could still hear it howling through the treetops . Our neighbor, with a much higher mast recorded a peak windspeed of 50 knots! But we came through it all unscathed. Life is good.
