Well, That Sucked!

I’d always wanted to sail a passage across and ocean. Sailing is not about the destination. It’s about the journey getting there, right? My friend, Allen, says “You hope the juice is worth the squeeze.” So, let me tell you about the squeeze we’ve been going through these last two weeks. After spending the summer Read More


Lobster: Friend or Food?

You did it. You actually bought four live lobsters with the intention of eating them for dinner. You’ve never done that before. You don’t know the first thing about it. How do you pick them up? Where do you keep them before you cook them? How do you cook them? Thank goodness for YouTube. You Read More


Hold On, Betsy!

When a 7-year-old sees a live lobster for the first time, what goes through his or her head? “That’s the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen!” Or, “That’s the coolest thing I’ve ever seen!” I can’t imagine being indifferent about them.

We’ve seen lots of sea life here in The Bahamas. Parrot fish, lobsters, turtles, lemon sharks, nurse sharks, and several varieties of rays. We were dinking around Prime Cay one day and saw so many huge stingrays, some as wide as our dinghy! They’re a bit menacing looking. Not so much their grey smooth bodies, Read More
