59 and counting

363 days until the big 6-0. So time to stop thinking about that for now.
Thelma did make me a delicious cake that everyone enjoyed very much. It was a great birthday party and I thank everyone for their kindness and all the good food at the Potluck. Everything from fresh Snapper, sausage from Carmine's in Palm Beach, Smokey Dog BBQ, to Doc Shippley's fresh Conch Salad.
It was a feast for sure.

Earlier in the day we made a supply run to Staniel and lunch at the Yacht Club. We walked over to the Pink Store and saw a pin full of Land Crab. As you can see in the video, they look like some prehistoric creature from an old 60's Sci-Fi film.

The Bahamians love these critters so much they hold a festival every year on Andros.
It's a three day event; this was just Saturday's line up.
