Christmas in America Bay

Christmas 2008 in America Bay 005 Martin and I spent a very quiet and beautiful couple of days in America Bay. Only a few boats in the bay and not many more in Refuge – It will be bedlam today but we are now home again.

Here are some photos. One is of America Bay on Christmas morning with the sun attempting to shine through this majestical mist.

All the best for the New Year!

IMG_6271 Jim Cormack roamed around last Friday's Sinterklaas get-together with his trusty camera and (as usual) took some terrific pictures. You can see the photos in the web album in the middle column, or you can watch a slide show "below the fold".

By the way, there were some questions on the night about where to obtain the Dutch sweets. Try the Dutch Shop "'t Winkeltje"  at 85 Market Street, Smithfield.
