January 2-10, Hollywood Beach-Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Our last step before we cross to the Bahamas is to load up with everything we might need and might not find easily or inexpensively over there. What those things are, we’re not entirely sure. To be on the safe side, we loaded up until we can stow no more. Rachael and I made several trips to the grocery store, and when we caught glimpses of each other’s overloaded carts, we’d laugh and say, “We’re acting like we’ll never see a grocery store again!”
We have cases of canned goods and beverages, bricks of coffee, an herb garden, and as much fresh produce and meat as we can squeeze into our refrigerator. Our boat is riding low in the water, but we are in no danger of starving for a very long time. And if Keith and Claus catch as many lobster and conch as we all hope they do, we’ll let those cans of tuna gather dust.
