Sailing and Playing with Baby Aboard

Hello all! This will be the first forum that we, (my wife, 1 year old and myself) have joined. We are looking for help, to help and just to meet fellow sailors. We are quite new to this and would love to hear from any and all of you.
Cheers.
We are from Alberta Canada, in Miami currently and attempting to get to our boat in Georgetown Bahamas.
If you would like to see who we are visit www.ebenstolz.ca as we have started a blog there.

Well, in my opinion marrying a 1 year old wife is far too young. Unless you're like 2 or something. Regardless, welcome to the forum and good for you getting out of Alberta.

good sailing,
Blair

Personally I'm giving marks for playing with with the baby aboard rather then overboard. Welcome to the forum.

Welcome aboard. Your blog is a good read, but one thing you mentioned made me stop and ponder about navel-gazing crap like the importance accent has on a word. Not just accent, but how emphasis changes meanings- This was prompted by the sentence where you talk about an "invalid cruising permit' in the Bahamas. I gotta ask:
What is an "invalid cruising permit"? Is it
a) a mooring equivalent of a handicapped parking space?
b) an expired permit.
c) neither of the above.
d) both of the above.

Answer d is gonna take a whole lotta splainin'.

This will be the first forum that we, (my wife, 1 year old and myself


Did you get parental permission to get married,,,

personally i would have waited till she was older but I do here that in some countries that is how marriages are arranged

enjoy the bahamas,,, if you ahve not been there before be sure to visit thunderball grotto,,, they filmed the james bond movie thunderball there,,,, the cave is very interesting,,, have to go in at slack tide,,,the is a beach (big major) just a little farther north of there that has several wild pigs,,,, they will swim out to you boat,,, expecting food and such,,, believe it or not this is true,,,

Bacon that comes to you; presalted even. They look more like feral then wild pigs though. Not that it makes a differance to the pig!

Can you spear the pigs?


I'm not talking about a guy that marries a 1 year old, altho that might be a good idea (spearing, not marrying). I'm talking about the ones that swim out to your boat in the bahamas(the pigs).

Hope I made myself clear!!

these are the pigs,,,, they are not wild, actually being raised by locals,,, when old enough the piglets are made into bacon,,,,they are friendly

it is a fun place to visit,, bring them lots of garbage and they are happy

Aloha and welcome aboard!
You're getting a lot of teasing about marrying a 1 year old. I did see the comma and I think its in the right place and it does count for something. Not sure what.
Good to have you here and have a great time in the Bahamas.
kind regards,

We were weren't we. Ha ha. No biggie. I found it quite humorous! I was going to make some witty comment about it being a 2 year old marriage cuz it was our anniversary today but after the flac from the first post I decided to refrain! Ha ha. But the funny thing is I originally joined the forum cuz we are in need of help to get some items to us in Georgetown Bahamas from Miami but not a soul has posted there ha!
The thread is" Help needed with a few items to Georgetown " if anyone knows anyone who could lend a hand!
