Merry Christmas!

I’ve spent two Christmases, 1991 and 1999, anchored off uninhabited cays in the Bahamas. White sand tropical beaches in the Bahamas remind me of sand dollars and sand dollars make lovely Christmas decorations.

Every year we hang our Bahamian sand dollars on our Christmas tree here in England.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our readers!

(Sand dollars are the endoskeletons of a type of sea urchin)
