"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Bahamas Day Dreams

“Paradise is always where love dwells.” ―Jean Paul

It seems like all the cruisers are either in the Bahamas or on their way this month...making me long for the crystal clear water, beautiful deserted beaches and the slow tranquil life of the islands. As wonderful as it would be in the Bahamas we've been enjoying our time at home.

The best part of taking a break from cruising is the time we get to spend with family...especially our little grandchildren. We're enjoying playtime, walks, exploring, hugs, kisses, story time and sleep overs with our little wonders. It's an incredible way to spend the winter...and the temperatures here in south Texas aren't bad either. It's been a moderate winter and with most days in the 60s and 70s…just the way I like it.
It's not the Bahamas, but our beach isn't bad.
When we start missing time on the water and our minds start wandering to the islands…we take Texas Pearl out for a short cruise or we go for a walk on the beach that is just outside our front door. The Bahamas do look wonderful and I'm enjoying everyone's photos, but life at home is good and we’re soaking in all the family time we can.

We'll be returning to The Pearl the beginning of April to do projects on the boat and get it ready for our seventh season of cruising…so stay tuned for details!
