March is here and once again the island will be busy with tourists from Canada and the colder US States trying to escape those cold icy snow days. The weather here is generally a balmy 78-82 degrees and the water temperature stays at a steady 74 degrees.
The fishing is great from now until May especially for big game fishing like Blue Marlin and Sail Fish, make sure you charter a local fishing Captain to take you out like Arawak Adventures they can be reached at 1-242-577-4394 or Thomas Sawyer at 1-242-5778195. The lobster season closes March 31st and Nassau Grouper Season opens February 28th. Please make sure that you follow all of the fishing laws in The Bahamas so that others can enjoy fishing in the future.
March is also St.Patricks Day Annual Golf Cart Parade and Bar Crawl on March 16th it is a lot of fun so make sure you bring something to decorate your golf cart and join in the fun.
Lent begins on March 6 th which is Ash Wednesday, it follows Shrove Tuesday where in my home we traditionally call it Pancake Day, we always had pancakes which are more like a crepe than an American Pancake and served with lemon juice and sugar. If you would like to attend Church while you are on the island please join us. St.Peter’s Anglican Church will be celebrating Ash Wednesday at 7 pm. Then on Thursdays at 7 pm, there will be The Stations of The Cross until Easter.
