Dave took me to the dock and picked me up for church today. The Catholic and the Anglican churches here were built by Father Jerome in the early 1900’s. His churches are known for their hurricane-proof stonework and thick walls. Last year, I saw one of his churches on Cat Island and the home he built on top of the highest point in the Bahamas called the Hermitage. I was glad we ended up staying another day. I really wanted to see the inside of the church, besides having the opportunity to attend a service. There is not a resident priest, so a deacon held the service at 9:00. They occasionally will have a visiting priest for mass.
We spent the rest of the day doing boat stuff and relaxing. We want to get an early start tomorrow.
