We don't get out much

Junkanoo parade
We're usually back on the boat before dark for dinner and bedtime. Cruising in remote areas where not much is going on helps promote that kind of behavior.

But here in the Abacos, there is a lot going on. Last Wednesday night, we went to rib night at the Jib Room in Marsh Harbour. The ribs were falling off the bone delicious and there was live music and limbo.
Then last Friday night we went to the Goombay Festival at the Sea Spray Marina. The full moon was big and orange while rising and then amazingly clear and bright. While the festival was going on, we got to see the Delta IV launch from Cape Canaveral in the distance. It was quite a sight and the live music and crowd made it even more memorable. The festival ended with a Junkanoo parade which features colorful costumes and a whole lot of noise/music.  The kids loved the parade but were certainly tired after a long day of snorkeling and the late night.

Desmond, who apparently has no bones to worry about. Only
his feet and ankles are touching the ground here.
