Christmas Day, Jolly Harbour, Antigua

We decided to come into the marina for Christmas Day so arrived yesterday afternoon in high winds ... we were both a bit apprehensive manoeuvring Tumi into a tight berth in the conditions but Paul did an excellent job on the helm and I worked with the dockhands to secure lines.  Phew!  As soon as we were settled we got the presents and cards out, as well as the small Christmas tree .... all looking very festive!

We had dinner at friends that evening ... they're renting a condo on the complex until their boat is splashed back in this coming week.

Christmas morning dawned sunny and warm (no surprise there!) and armed with a glass of bucks fizz we tackled the present table.  An early walk down to the beach under our belts, we tucked into a "full english" which should be enough to sustain us until dinner this evening.

So now we're doing the traditional Christmas Day activity of snoozing and watching movies ... just shows that wherever you are in the world, things happen in a very similar manner!

Merry Christmas.
