New Years Eve do-over Feb. 6, 2011

Antiqua---I had explained the on New Years Eve, I was curled up in bed in a studio apartment in Bequia with food poisoning and the memory of two visits to their poor local hospital.

So everyone was up to give me a do-over. We didn't leave the boat at Anchor in Fawlsmouth harbor and had a blast. It was one of the most fun New Years Eve's I've ever had, proving once again you just need a few friends, stupid drinking games and good moods to make any night a blast.

Because we were still all tired from our previous passage, I decided we would celebrate midnight on London time since we have two Brits aboard...that is 8pm our time! ...So we did the countdown at 8 complete with party hats and clapper noice makers. Tinsel had gone up from Christmas leftovers and battery operated tiny lights. I got out my color changing Ogg and somehow a bottle of Jack disappeared that night. Becky had a series of games that we tried our best to understand but the rules kept changing. Jake decided to where the banana leaf glasses a local had made him, which looked comical.

I lasted until 11:47...eight minutes before our midnight. But, officially, HAPPY NEW YEAR.
