Two full years have passed since www.errrolthurstonbahamas.com launched and its success is mindboggling. We have web hits from around the world and I’ve made contact with some wonderful people. It’s amazing how quickly the Errol Thurston Bahamas family has grown in this short amount of time. It is because of you, my friends, that I amtruly blessed and have maintained a successful business. Thank you for your continued support and for sharing Errol Thurston Bahamas with your friends and family.
This summer certainly was a whirlwind. Starting in May, I was booked solid and barely had time to get pictures up on the website for you all to see. When my last group left Marsh Harbour the first week of August, after we took full advantage of the opening of lobster season of course, I hopped on a plane to make my way over to the states to take part in one of my newest and most rewarding chapters in my life. I was sure to take a breather and spent a couple of weeks relaxing and catching up on sleep. Boy was that heaven on earth! Then on August 15, 2013 my newest first mate was born. Errol “Tripp”Thurston III came into this world in true Bahamian fashion … with no rush and no worries. Tripp has quite the personality and is an absolut testament to his name. He’s already at home in the water, loves a good nap, and is a huge fan of boobs! (He might take after his daddy just a little bit!) He really has brightened our world and we are absolutely in love with this little guy. I see a lot of awesome fishing in this boy’s future; can’t wait to post his first big catch on www.errolthurstonbahamas.com.
After several weeks at home helping Tripp and his momma adjust to this new life, I headed back to Marsh Harbour to hang with some of my favorite friends – David and Tracie Cason, Katherine Gonos, and Steve Adkins. We had one heck of a good time. Our fishing trips reeled in a few Wahoo … one topping out at 94lbs. Ain’t nothing wrong with that! This is one of my favorite groups to hang with because they are so easy going and truly enjoy every moment of island life. It’s always sad to see them go.
One of the other (and best) perks about being back in Marsh Harbour is that I got to spend time with my oldest daughter, Sierra. We headed out on the water on a mission to get as many conch, lobster,and fish as we could. Take a look at the pictures posted in our photo section and let me know how you think we did. I’d say she’s got a little of her old man’s fishing skills. I’m so proud of Sierra. She started school in Marsh Harbour this year and is doing well. I can’t believe she just celebrated her 12th birthday. Where does the time go?! I tell you, friends, it goes by too fast. Be sure to remember how blessed we all are and take the time to say thank you for all the greatness that surrounds each of us. I tell you what, I’m one grateful guy!
