The night before weighing anchor to Nassau, we went ashore for the Georgetown x-mass tree lighting ceremonies. The highlight of the evening was the Bahamas National Police Force Marching Band. Made me want to pick up the glocenspeil and start hammering away on the keys again!! They were terrific! Also great were some of the young Bahamian youth dancers. Made me remember the times when I chaperoned the Kanopy Youth ensemble to Wales with Kristi. Much of the local population of Great Exuma Island turned out for this auspicious occasion. Topped the evening off by trying some of the local chicken soup, otherwise known as Sousa. Delicious!!! Unfortunately, was a very wet dingy ride back across Elizabeth Harbor to Bel Ami. Oh well, thats whats its all about!
