Waiting for Weather at South Cat Cay

Winds from the northeast and east were predicted, so we made our way a few more miles south to South Cat Cay. We had to poke around for a while, but we eventually found a big sand hole to plant our anchors in. The winds started the day after we got here (Friday), and are expected to continue through the weekend. We’ve haven’t been able to get out in the dinghy to explore, but we’ve found plenty to do aboard: reading, writing, editing, getting the SSB to work, baking bread and trying out new recipes. We’re certainly not bored, but it will be good to be able to get out and about again once this system blows over.


  1. Congratulations on your 20th!! Sure sounds like a great place to spend it. We will be watching, following your positions, and learning by your adventure. Look forward to your SSB check-ins.

    Steve & Lynn

  2. Ok, Chris,
    Here's the deal. Berta actually didn't get the message until just now (Sunday, 3:30 pm). We just talked, and they're not at the boat right now and won't be able to talk to you on the SSB until Tues. a.m. They will, though, watch for messages on their blog. They say they're happy to get whatever you need. Just leave a message there and let them know exactly what it is. They'll also try to raise you on the SSB Tues a.m.

  3. Anne and Xhris,
    Whatever you need, we will bring it. Just give us the info and we will order it...Sorry about not getting your emails, we were staying at a friend's house for the weekend. I will try to listen to Chris Parker at 8:00...on 4045....Hope you get this...

  4. Happy 20th Anniversary! Wow-It seems like just a few years ago you we all spent the week in Galveston for the wedding. Glad to hear all is going good. Your "Waiting for Weather..." entry reminds me of the weekend Karen and I were "stuck" in Venice waiting for Mom to wire us money to pay our hotel bill. Tough, huh?
    How did your bread come out?


  5. Chris,

    Rainy and windy here yesterday so I sat down and read Scimitar Moon...Excellent! I've never been much for fantasy work, but this is a great mix woven into a wonderful adventure story... Really enjoyed it!!!
