It’s difficult, if not impossible, to remember all the fun moments of this winter in the Exumas. However having extremely creative friends certainly helps in this endeavor. On our last evening in Ft. Lauderdale after docking the boat safely, Jan and Diane treated us to one last (for the season) dinner at their house and presented us with this unique treasure to remember our fun days.
The design was born out of the many funny quips one of us said during the cruise back to the states. For example:
From Phil – “The big dipper moved” uttered at 4 a.m.; he was actually incredulous it was not in the same place as when we went to bed.
From Phil – “Get the dinghy closer to shore; I don’t get my toes wet.”
From Diane – “It’s only fitting we raise our sails together” as we set off from Cat Cay to Florida.
From Jan – “Shaka Khan owns this island?” after anchoring off one of the most abused islands in the Exuma chain. It is actually owned by Aga Khan.
From Jan – “Who’s on that boat?”, Diane “It’s Rickshaw”, Jan, “But who is he?” Diane, “Rickshaw”, Jan, “But what’s the name of the boat?”, Diane, “Rickshaw”, Jan, “No I mean I know Rick Shaw but what’s the name of his boat.” This went on for at least five minutes trying to get the point across that the boat name was Rickshaw and we didn’t know who owned it!!
From Diane – “We’re staying here! It’s a bonus day!!” following the announcement of yet another day of bad weather keeping us in port.
From Jan – “We saw David Copperfield!!” as he disembarked from his plane on Cave Cay; thereafter, he was referred to as the Black Cape.
Most of the rest of the sayings are all so special and every time we look at this bottle, it brings huge smiles. order a term paper online
