George Town Exuma Daze

Radeen looking out to sea from Monument Hill
The George Town Exuma Daze has been taking hold of our daily "grind!" You know, we wake to hear the weather via SSB and Chris Parker, then we tune into the local George Town Cruisers Net on 72 while making breakfast. After breakfast we do some boat chores and around 11 ish we hit the beach, climb a trail, swim, search for shells, dinghy to the fun spot CHAT n CHILL and Volleyball beach to hear a discussion or chat with some cruisers. Grab a cold KALIK Beer, walk some more beaches, swim a little, and by now, you are about exhausted!

When the DAZE has kicked into full tilt, you may need a nap, or a hammock, or a good book to read. By 1800 hrs it is sunset and time to test your conch blowing skills and alert all to the SUNSET. Dinner is shortly after that and maybe some boat visits with friends. The full moon rises as the sun sets and the night sets in. Cruisers call 2100 hrs "cruisers midnight" and if you can make it that long, you are doing well. Most of "us" hit the bunk around then and call it another great day.....

The crowd at CHAT n CHILL and Volleyball beach, it really is FUN

Back to the boat for SUNSET and conch horn time

Full Moon over our stern with Monument Hill in the back
George Town DAZE....can you see why so many cruisers get stuck here? There are currently 300 boats on anchor, it is regatta time, and there is something for everyone....

Love that full moon photo.

I can almost smell the sea and hear the water quietly lapping at the hull...... peaceful.

Don't wear yourself out with that exhausting schedule that you guys are keeping.
