We had a quiet New Years Eve at the marina-surf and turf dinner with fellow cruisers- cute 80`s themed party and d.j. but we fizzled out early and watched the ball drop in the boat.Today we took the dingy into town for junkanoo.It is a small island town but they put on a wonderful lively parade that lasted over 2 hours.There was also live music and a d.j. at another street.It was funny to hear the song Stagger Lee sung caribbean style-loved it.There was food stands everywhere with our favorite being a church charity stand.So much food overpacking a styrofoam take out container-fried chicken,peas and rice,mac and cheese and potato salad-took home enough for tommorrow at $12 a meal.Food here is mostly double what we pay in the states because everything is shipped from overseas.We do get amazing fresh bread here,butter like Grandma used to churn and fresh eggs.There was a man cleaning conch next to our dingy with his family making fresh conch salad on the dock.The best part of Junkanoo was seeing how much fun the kids were having.Tommorrow we will venture out to see if the Whale cut is passable to get to Guana Cay and Nippers bar there then next is Treasure Cay.
