This is where Dad has been for the last couple of weeks. It's a boat yard in the Bahamas. It is very industrial and you have to drive to go anywhere scenic. At least it is quiet at night (except for the one noise-filled night, including bad Karaoke, from a neighboring mega yacht crew party). But the sounds of sanding and repairs on other boats start up early each morning. So there is no sleeping in.
Dad has spent a lot of time cleaning out lockers and holds (there was a lot of old spilled paint and other gooey stuff in them). Our friends Pete and Hilary from Iowa came down to visit and did an incredible amount of work. They are the best guests ever.
Internet can be weak and access goes out a lot so we have not been able to talk very much but yesterday we had a nice long video Skype. The plan is to see Dad in Florida next week.
