On Saturday, Man O’ War hosted a Luau as a fund-raiser for a youth community center.  So we went.

The Albury Ferry provided transportation from the Hopetown Post Office dock.  (This picture was taken in MOW’s protected harbor.)

There were only four of us on the Hopetown to MOW ferry.  A cold front had gone through the night before – blew hard all night, bringing in cooler temps.  It was cloudy and windy in the morning and there were some serious waves in the Sea of Abaco.  Donnie V smashed right through them;  sometimes spray flew up all the way over the top of the ferry.

By the time we arrived at MOW, the sky was clearing – it turned out to be a sunny, warm day.  The Luau was well-done and well-attended.  Lovely decorations.

With good food – pork, BBQ chicken, mac n’ cheese, peas n’ rice, lettuce salad and lots of yummy desserts.

Plus limbo and grass skirt contests, kids’ activities, and live and silent auctions.   (We did NOT limbo.)

We walked down to Sally’s to select some Androsia fabric.  It’s a batik of bright island colors and motifs that’s hand-dyed on Andros Island in the central Bahamas.

Gorgeous.  Whenever I buy Androsia fabric, someone always asks what I’m going to use it for.   Use it???  So far, I just collect it. 

On the way, as we were walking along  the sidewalk in town, Goldwin spied an egg in the hedge just off the sidewalk.  We were trying to figure that out when we realized the egg was beside a nest with a momma duck on it.

We hurried along.  She seemed unperturbed. 

We crossed over to the ocean side and enjoyed a walk on MOW’s beautiful beach.
