It's #FlashbackFriday on the blog and we travel back in time to when we were living in New Zealand, in search of Ethiopian food and wondering what would be involved in sailing to Ethiopia. Plus there's some fun pictures of the Fiji consulate located in a jewelry shop and a variety of taro root on offer at a local greengrocer. Have you ever had Ethiopian food? Did you like it?

For #WordlessWednesday we visit one of our favorite stores in Hope Town - Vernon's Grocery. The place to get great key lime pie and freshly baked bread if you ever find yourself in this part of the Bahamas.

Have you ever hidden a body in your basement or on your boat? Check out the blog for details on our time in Hope Town in the Abacos, Bahamas where we were worried that something terrible had happened to Frank (a fellow Moody sailboat owner) and the culprits had hidden his body somewhere on his boat. When we couldn't get to the bottom of Frank's disappearance, we went for a walk around Hope Town instead and took some pictures. Just as pretty as last time we were there.

Curious how much it costs to go cruising on a Moody 346 sailboat in Florida and the Bahamas? Check out the blog for the details of how much we spent and what we spent it on.

Spray bottles have so many uses on a sailboat from using to rinse your dishes to finding the spots where your dinghy is leaking air so that you can patch them.

Our monthly recap of April by the number is up on the blog. The highlights include anchoring every day (yay for not spending any money on mooring balls or marinas!), cooking all of our own food on board and meeting up with folks from Indiantown Marina. The lowlights include spending way too much time anchored in Marsh Harbour due to weather and stuff breaking. How did your April go?

When we tell people our boat is named Tickety Boo, the menfolk will often raise their eyebrows and give Scott a sympathetic look for having agreed to such a silly name. The womenfolk, on the other hand, usually think it's cute. I'm not sure how impressed Scott was when I told him our dinghy was named Boo Boo. Check out the blog for all of the details, as well as our cruising log from the stay-without-end in Marsh Harbour a few weeks ago.
