Even though we have our lovely boat for sale, Mattina continues to give us gifts as we sail toward Florida.
As we head north, the wind comes from the south at 15 knots and we raise the spinnaker. We sail for two days under these conditions, happy to be cruising at 7 knots over ground heading for our destination.
With the wind and weather treating us well, we’ll make the most of our final days in the Bahamas. If you are interested in buying Mattina or would like to see her in Florida, please check out our listing. You can also contact us through that page.
Playing on the beach, I heard a noise. I know that voice, I thought. I looked left, looked right and there she was. Yay.
I’m was soooo happy I jumped on her. Now, I’m not allowed to jump on people, but I could see Kristina felt guilty about leaving me, so she hugged me instead of telling me to sit. I still don’t get where she went. Humans are strange sometimes.
When guests arrive on Mattina, they may think they’re coming for a vacation full of fun and relaxation, but …
Okay, it’s true there is a lot of fun and relaxation, but we also put our guests to work.
My nephew got the fun job of checking the anchor. Even though we have a pretty good anchoring process, and we love our Rocna anchor, it never hurts to have a pair of eyes check the anchor is fully buried.
Lucky nephew. He got the good job. Others, like cleaning the galley, are not so fun.
Since Mattina is for sale, we are trying to make the most of our time in the Bahamas and one of my favourite things to do is yoga on the beach.
What do you need to do this?
If you don’t have a yoga instructor handy, yogadownload.com has a variety of classes that you can download onto an iPod. Then you need a set of speaks with loud volume. You might be surprised how loud the waves are. We discovered this early on.
I love listening to a class that mentions wind or sky, and I’m actually outside and can feel the wind and see the sky.
The only downside is if holding a pose properly is important to you. Sometimes you shift in the sand or the wind pushes you.
