The weather goddess must have received roses, chocolates and jewels for Valentine’s Day as she happily calmed the winds and waves by late afternoon. A dry dinghy ride in to the SCYC was assured and we would have our “prepared by someone else” dinner treat.
To make our day even more special s/v Makai anchored off the YC which meant we’d finally get to meet her five-person, one dog, California, catamaran crew. S/v Makai is a blog follower who had some questions when the time came to make their dinghy chaps. Jackie is such a talented seamstress that she could make these monsters blindfolded! Eric told us that he’d found our blog when searching for East Coast cruising info.
We shared stories (there’s always much more than we each have in our respective blogs), met the fantastic home/boat-schooled trio and hung out in the bar area while they ate and we waited for the late dinner bell to ring.
Saturday was a fundraising event to benefit the library, the cay’s oldest building. Bake sale, flea market, raffle and lunch- right off the town beach. Cruisers, vacationers and private home owners made tracks for food.
A stop at Burke’s Blue Store yielded a few items on my grocery list and those coupled with what Isle’s General had; hey we’d be good for a few more days!
Make that very good what with the treats we scored at the bake sale. One item I’d never heard of but will definitely add to my recipe collection, is cookie-brownies. Take brownie batter and put a scoop into a cupcake paper liner then plop a spoonful of chocolate chip dough in the middle and bake. These were delicious and all mine as they included walnuts 🙂
