2009 #07 02/15/09 thru 02/19/09
last update, we were aboard AMARSE at the Abaco Beach Resort and Boat Harbour
Marina in the Bahamas.
SUNDAY BOAT HARBOUR to
Judy and I received another great invitation to join a group aboard SHADE
MOR for the cruise to Nipper’s Beach Bar and Restaurant on Guana Cay.
We always love to be included in this wonderful day event planned by Bob
and Judy Williams.
For a little while, the weather looked iffy during the trip across the
Sea of Abaco. The wind had picked
up and there were light rain showers. As
luck would have it, the skies began to lighten and the winds subsided a bit as
we neared the Guana harbour.
To keep the brisk breeze from pressing SHADE MOR too tightly against the
dock pilings, several of the strong guys were impressed to push her off enough
to insert a few large, cylindrical fenders as a protective measure.
This way to the world famous Nippers…
The light rain had left crystalline droplets on the petals of this bloom
as if to highlight its awesome natural beauty…
In a special humidor room, Nippers has a primo selection of genuine Cuban
cigars just begging to be smoked. How
could I ever resist?
When I saw that sand sticking to Andrew’s toes, I could immediately
sense the true, relaxing tropical atmosphere of this wonderful place.
Bette and David Bauereis (TAR HEEL) were clearly enjoying that magical
aura of this tropical paradise…
Robert Wilson (SEA ISLAND GIRL) had Bette up dancing to the Caribbean
With sand on her feet, Judy had jumped into the full swing of that
tropical beach mode…
Now, here is a very happy couple…
Wilma and Judy got into the “move of the groove”…
Wally (S/V FANCY BREAD) found his favorite place in the sun resting by
the poolside lounge…
Yummy… A strand of raw onion… Yummy…
The salty sea air, a frozen Nippers drink, and a tasty lunch were just
the right combination to keep these RMHYC folks real happy and content…
All the girls love Robert… They all think that he is Elvis…
Party time at Nippers…
Brant and Elinor were guests of Robert and Carolyn Wilson aboard SEA
ISLAND GIRL. Just able to visit
this year, they were berthed at Dock 7 aboard LAZY BONES in previous years.
Rick and Diane Brenneman (LADY DI)…
Judy, Judy, Judy…
Joan Elliott (CHRISTINE) and Judy Law (AMARSE)…
Captain Bob Williams (SHADE MOR) and Fred Reed (AMARSE)…
Main deck area at Nippers Beach Bar…
Pam and John Mitchell (FANNY BAY)(center) and Joan and Jim Elliott (CHRISTINE)(outside)…
John Mitchell is an honored Past Commodore of our Royal Marsh Harbour
Judy (AMARSE) and Wally (FANCY BREAD)…
The foredeck started to fill up for our return departure that was
scheduled for 4pm.
We certainly echo Carolyn Wilson (SEA ISLAND GIRL) in proclaiming this as
“another great day in the island paradise…”
Thanks again, Bob and Judy Williams (SHADE MOR) for bringing so much joy
to our times in the Abacos!
MONDAY BOAT HARBOUR
U.S. PRESIDENTS’ DAY…
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOYS…
After our fabulous evening at the RMHYC Commodore’s Ball and Mardi Gras
Theme Party Event that was held a few nights ago, Judy had the bright idea to
transform her beautiful mask into a wall decoration for our master stateroom.
It looks absolutely perfect and we are both delighted with the new look
and by the great memories that are brought to mind.
Great idea, Judy…
Ed Zellers (M/V TALLY HO) helped us to form and reshape our conch shell
to make a couple of good conch horns. Now
that we have the proper instrument, we just have to perfect the technique.
Our dinner guests aboard AMARSE were Kent and Gretchen Cronkhite (S/V
KINJA KAT). Following
cocktails, the meal commenced with Iceberg Lettuce Wedges with tomatoes and
black olives, then topped with blue cheese dressing and crumbles.
The entrée featured Stuffed Green Peppers filled with a blend of
sausage, sweet red peppers, carrots, celery, onion, and seasoned tomato sauce
layered with shredded cheeses.
TUESDAY BOAT HARBOUR
Rita (MAGNUM OPUS) hosted a luncheon and jewelry making session for the
gals. Judy and Kathy Sales gave the
instructional techniques to the eager group of six.
They are all coming up with lovely designs and creations.
Once again, my website activities consumed most of the day.
Our evening included a visit to SEA ISLAND GIRL for a rousing few games
of “Farkle”. The “Queen of
Farkle”, Carolyn Wilson snookered us on both games to regain her title.
Even with all the applause, we still had time for a few games of “Ship,
Captain, Crew” to further our enjoyment.
THURSDAY BOAT HARBOUR
Using iTunes, I worked on my iPod music organization.
I am really enjoying a renewed interest in listening to various musical
selections that are easily accessed with the iPod.
At 1pm, Rita Wieczorek came over and we organized the new photo sections
for the RMHYC webpages. With a lot
of new faces in the officer ranks, it was definitely time to give these hard
working folks the recognition they deserve.
RMHYC members should access their pages frequently to garner all kinds of
news, information and event schedules. As
Vice Commodore of Communications, Rita is doing a magnificent job of keeping
everyone fully informed in a variety of media. I am pleased to be able to assist
her with numerous photos for her fascinating articles.
Thursday evening signaled another “Talent Night” event at the
Angler’s Restaurant here at the Abaco Beach Resort and Boat Harbour Marina.
Ed and Shirley Zellers (M/V TALLY HO) were headed up for tonight’s
Judy and Fred (AMARSE) walked up there too…
Frank Gavin (SEA SMOKE) and Shirley Zellers (M/V TALLY HO) drew lots of
big smiles with a vaudeville-style shtick.
Many of the resort staff and employees are talented contributors…
Carl Lantz (PUFFIN) can really belt out a tune.
He used to be a member of a “barbershop quartet”.
The dining room hostess charmed the audience with her spirited
Della, or “Della-licious” as she is affectionately called, is a star
Judy Law (AMARSE) stepped up to mesmerize the crowd with a sparkling
rendition of a Bette Midler tune entitled “The Rose”.
Everyone certainly enjoyed her beautiful voice singing a favorite tune.
Carolyn Wilson (SEA ISLAND GIRL) held us quietly spellbound with her
acapella version of a complex song about New York…
Mike Beneville (LIBATIONS IV) hit us with the familiar song about “King
of the Road”…
One of the Chef’s assistants did a fine job with her choice of songs…
The Director of Human Resources picked a great song for her turn at the
The Angler’s Restaurant hostess was terrific again…
Commodore Jim Fenn and RMHYC First Lady, Kathy, were in touch with the
music. Some people only hear the
music; it is clearly evident that they truly feel the music...
When the employee group gathers to harmonize a few gospel favorites, the
room comes to their feet…
Robert Wilson (SEA ISLAND GIRL) is always a welcome member of the gospel
Peter Sweeting recognized the wonderful contributions of the resort staff
for their participation in making these evenings such a joy for everyone
Judy was out to “strut her stuff” as the singers entertained.
Electric Slide, anyone?
Peter Sweeting (ABACO BEACH RESORT) and Fred Reed (AMARSE)…
Joan and Jim Elliott (CHRISTINE)…
Visiting from Nassau, Manny’s daughter played some beautiful music on
the electric piano.
The dinner special was Linguine Alfredo with a Pesto and Red Sweet Pepper
twist. Of course, the cocktails
were wonderful too. The chef’s
and staff have been doing a great job for everyone.
These dinner and talent show nights have become quite popular with the
RMHYC folks. It is great to have so
many talented folks surrounding us her at Boat Harbour.
