Getting in the Spirit
"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..." The marina has started to decorate for the holidays, so we joined in and brightened up our porch. There are still plenty of lights and blow-up decorations that they will put out (hopefully more on the trees), but at least our apartment will fit in to the multi-colored light theme.
We are still waiting for the light strands that decorate the lighthouse to arrive. They are have been 'stuck' on a boat in Green Turtle Cay, because of a rage going on in the Whale Cay Channel. Arrangements have just been made to have them picked up by an electric company crew who have been working at Green Turtle Cay and are returning to mainland Abaco by ferry. The ferry lands in Treasure Cay and the crew and the lights will take their truck the 30 miles into Marsh Harbor and drop them off at the other ferry landing. Then the lights will cross the Sea of Abaco and the ferry driver will drop them off here at Lighthouse Marina...at 9:20 AM! As we say here, "It takes and island..." or in this case a few islands to get it all done! That's one of the wonderful things about living in such a close knit community.
