A Vacation away from our Vacation
After listening to our trusted weather guru yesterday we decided to pick up our anchor and head over to Emerald Bay Marina to sit out the next weather front. Besides, it was time to leave Georgetown and we are ready for a break from anchoring out.
The sail over was uneventful until we came to the marina entrance where we surfed in on some pretty impressive waves. It wasn't ideal conditions to say the least but we handled it quite well. Once we made it inside of the break-wall all was calm again, but better than that, what lay before us was a beautiful 1st class facility. We were awe struck!
A very nice dock attendant was waiting for us and after helping us with our dock lines he rolled out this beautiful welcome mat. I'm not kidding! I had to take pictures of it.
After settling in we headed up to the showers and washrooms and found bathrooms like something you'd find in a 5 star hotel. Not only were they beautiful but they came complete with complimentary shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, body wash, lotion, mouthwash, sunscreen, Kleenex, cotton balls, and hand towels. Having been out for 6 months this luxury left us feeling like we had died and gone to heaven. We had the most wonderful shower that we have had in a very long time.
Before we went back to the boat we checked out the beautiful and tastefully decorated club house with comfy couches, desks with computers and free wifi. There was also a lounge with tables and chairs set up overlooking the marina and the ocean beyond. They also offer the use of their state of the art laundry facility free of charge......and....you won't believe it........all this for only twenty dollars a day!!!!!!!
I may never leave.
