There are several places that have dinghy docks in Simpson Bay Lagoon. They are usually stores or bars. One of our favorites is Barnacles Greek Bar in Simpson Bay. It is close to a cash machine, the drug store (where I seem to spend a lot of time purchasing dressings for Andy) and has great Greek food. They also have a couple of big TV sets. Usually they are playing endlessly boring video of skate boarders and surfers. It was very quiet last night so I asked Callie, the owner if they had any movies. She said yes, a big library. I asked if she had Skyfall and she said yes.
We started to watch the movie. Since the bar stools have no backs Andy was getting tired holding her arm in a position that did not hurt. We grabbed a couple of chairs and settled down by the bar to watch. Callie then showed up with POPCORN! After a bit Andy tried to fold a fleece jacket as a headrest. Callie brought out a big pillow! We decided that every Tuesday should be movie night. What a great time.
Just as we were leaving after the movie our Spider Hunters returned with their catch. So it all worked out great.
Fair winds and following seas.
