This evening finds us back from our adventures to the UK and South Africa for Christmas. A brief and frigid (-26C) trip home for Ken. Now both of us are back on Sylken Sea, provisioning for a cruise to the Bahamas. This year we have the Jumentos, Acklins, Cat Island, Eleuthera and the Abacos on the radar. Can't wait to cut loose and cruise free of marinas and schedules.
