Lisbon Creek, Andros, Bahamas

 The mailboat left, so the dock looks a little lonely now....I understand it will return after it's rounds to other islands Thursday.

This morning James' mom arranged for a bone-fishing guide Jacob to come over to the boats and give us a conch cleaning lesson.  It was fun to watch.  Plus we got some conch for a salad!  Nice young man.

We got the dinghies down and went for a 2 1/2 hour dinghy ride up Lisbon Creek.

Another victim of some storm years ago.  The water is only 1-2 feet deep here.

Just pretty mangroves.  No buildings for several miles.

Caught a snapshot of Duane!

Leslie and Ralph.  Leslie was the only smart one - she wore a jacket.  At times the wind/wavelets were splashing us and it actually got a bit chilly!

Back at the dock - we had disconnected and turned the boats around because we'll get those nasty winds from the east tomorrow.   We went to James' mother's little restaurant next door for some tasty conch fritters and a few beverages.  A pleasant day!
