New Year’s eve we found ourselves back at Bitter End, anchored near Prickly Pear island. Fellow cruisers, Second Wind (Howard and Hope) and Judith Arlene (Ed and Judy)were near by so we decided on a pot luck dinner and games on Blue Sky while we awaited midnight. Nigel (Judy & Ed’s dog) joined us in his finest attire (bow tie at his neck and cuffs on his paws).
The bay was filled to the brim with boats of all sizes, including many mega yachts. The bars and restaurants were full and music abounded around us. There was no need to set the timer for midnight as ship horns honked and people cheered. We rung in the new year with a glass of champagne brought by Judith Arlene and some Grand Marnier soaked strawberries and a bite of chocolate. Oh what a reward for staying up until midnight. Cheers to everyone for a healthy and happy 2016.
