After Marsh Harbor we went over to Great Guana Cay to get close to Whale Cay cut. We met up with some friends, Mark (the mayor) on sv "Down Island" and Tim & Joanne on sv "Expatriate". Happy hour was had at Grabbers for the last Bahamian rum drink and then it was "to sea"!

The trip started as a rousing romp NW towards Jacksonville and ended up with flat seas during a motor into St. Augustine. A whole menu of conditions were present so we washed down Nati today to get 10lbs of salt off her. The three days and two nights offshore were good, the stars were many and we even caught our first fish trolling this year! Here is a shout out to Ivanhoe…..he gave me his favorite lure and that night we had fresh sushi.

|I got your blackfin tuna right here!|
At present we're at St Augustine and tomorrow we will start moving north again. Not sure what the weather will give us but we are shooting for Fernandina Beach and then we will see from there.
