Would you want to to sail around the world with your family on a sailboat?

I know it's way past time for a new post

I cannot believe how quickly time has passed.  We have had a great time here in the Bahamas and are already talking about heading back.  I really do have a good excuse for not posting more- internet connections have been abysmal.  Arthur has been able to update his blog because sailblog has great compression software and he can transmit on very low band and also on his sat phone.  His site is svmorningglory.com 

We have met some really great friends and have traveled to some really beautiful places.  Some quick highlights since my last posts are:

Georgetown- arriving just in time for the Family Island Regatta where the local race in their hand crafted sailboats.  The children got to participate in the children's regatta.  Georgetown is where we met some really great people like Kylie, Stuart and Sammy on s/v Clementine, and the Shewowow guru Simon and his wife Andrea and children Esther and Stephen's new best friend Damien on Nathanael.  We also met Scott and Esme and their children Haley and Alana on Las Sirenas.  I also can't forget Liberty, Side by Side, and Asolaires (which I know I spelled wrong) and many other people I am sure I'll run into again.

The Exumas-  What beautiful pristine islands.  Just make sure you stock up before arriving because there is nothing there in the way of provisions. We went to Rudder Cay, Staniel Cay where we met up again with Natanael and Las Sirenas.  There we saw swimming pigs and the famous Thunderball grotto from the James bond movie. We also went to Cambridge Cay, Wardwick Wells and Hawksbill Cay.  At Hawksbills we had our final shewowwow  in the Shewowwow Grotto and said goodbye to our good friends on Natanael. Our last day in the Exumas was at Shroud Cay at the most spectacular beach I have ever seen. I can't believe I forgot my camera.  I will try to get some photos from friends to post.

Rivers birthday party
Now we are experiencing culture shock at the Atlantis resort off Nassau.  I'll take pictures of our view and post them tomorrow.
