10/12/2016 : BBC on Great Harbour Cay

That's baking, bread-making and cycling, all part of today's activities.  Whilst it's very beautiful here and somewhat off the beaten track, buying groceries isn't straight forward so we decided to open the Tumi bakery and successfully produced a loaf of bread and some bran muffins ... very proud!  The French lady on the boat moored next to us even gave me a lesson in baguette making so we'll be putting that to the test in the near future.

The marina provides complimentary bikes to explore the island so this afternoon we headed out for some fresh air and cycled around 8 miles on bikes with no gears nor brakes .... hard work on some of the hills I can tell you!  They also arrange social events so last night about 20 of us dined on the dockside and put the world to rights, all good fun.

The previous evening we were lucky enough to be given three freshly caught lobster tails and, after looking up how to cook them, produced a very attractive plate of food which tasted absolutely delicious.  Accompanied by a glass of white wine, we dined like kings.

It's pretty windy this weekend and so unusually for us we've opted to stay in the marina for a week ... at least this way we can get off the boat easily.  Tomorrow morning we're off for Sunday brunch at the only hotel on the island .... a small boutique place on the beach run by an English couple.  We called in today to book a table and we're welcomed with complimentary drinks .... all very civilised!
