Leaving George Town

Finally, it was time to leave George Town, but first Vinnie had to replace the starter. The delay gave us time to hang out at Bal Sounds, the internet - taxi cab - electronic store, catch our email, and try to update the blog without success. Best of all, we were able to enjoy seeing Pat and Michael from Twice in a Blue Moon one last time.

Greetings, Vince and Maria!

Although you do not know me, I also met Pat and Michael of Twice In A Blue Moon -- we were both on the hook in Marsh Harbour in early June as my friend Don and I were preparing to take his sloop-rigged "Windy" north to Boston. Pat and Michael still had not completed engine repairs on the Blue Moon but were hopeful to get going soon.

We met in the Abaco Internet office, where I was busy sending email and checking weather conditions prior to shoving off -- they were very helpful as I negotiated a frustrating mail server configuration. I write you today because (unbeknownst to Pat and Michael) I took a great picture of them in their dinghy as they crossed the reflection of the setting sun of Marsh Harbour (I think it was Thursday, June 8th). You can clearly make out the little 4 HP engine as they traverse the harbor toward their boat.

I would like very much to send it to them but have no way to contact them. If you are able to, could you please forward my email address to them, explaining why? I would be happy to send the picture to you as well. Thank you very much!

Fair winds and following seas,
