AnTiki finds a new home

AnTiki crept slid gracefully into Governor’s harbour this morning on the end of a tow rope, skippered by local fisherman Daniel Gerzewski, to take up residence in her new home. She held her head high as she hove into view and the assembled throng watched as AnTiki floated nearer and nearer.
They could see Captain Anthony shaking hands with various dignities on the shore including Damian Gomez (MP elect, Central and South Eleuthera),in what was his first official duty around town in Eleuthera, since confirmation of his victory by the parliamentary commissioner in Nassau, on Wednesday morning.
Children from Eleuthera’s schools enjoyed a break from lessons to watch the arrival of this strange vessel and will enjoy learning the story of Anthony’s extraordinary adventure.
The whole finale to AnTiki’s long journey across the Atlantic to Eleuthera was reported by The Eleutheran News.
Read here…There are great pictures!

Ros Seyfert from Haynes Library was at the harbour with her camera yesterday morning as AnTiki arrived.
Here are some of her pictures……

And now, here is the weather.
