Good-bye to Long Island for now ...

Last evening we tried one more time to get to the Long Island Breeze Resort for dinner before leaving the Island this morning – but it was not to be. This time the dinghy worked perfectly, and we arrived at 6:45 p.m., only to discover that the dining room is not open on Sunday nights L. However, we met a lovely young couple and their two small sons, who were having a great time climbing palm trees on the beach. We had a good chat – then we all dinghied back to our respective boats for the night, and for us, a dinner of scrambled eggs – our fall-back meal.

This morning both boats left at the same time for George Town, Exumas, so we followed them all the way in, through a line squall and mostly a great 5 hour down-wind sail. Jeff continued with his “home improvements” (this time making a towel rack for the head), and I continued waxing the boat. All in all a wonderful visit to Long Island – we’ll definitely go back there again.

So now we’re anchored in the marine “trailer park” off George Town, and tomorrow we head to points North – particularly the Exuma Cays Land and Sea park for some great snorkelling!
