... I think they had all gone to see the ship and sell something) We eventually got back to Mindelo, walked around the market, nothing of interest, another latte/wi-fi stop and back on to the Marina.
We left 'Timbuktu' about 5pm...was a nice sail out...again, this was one of those places we resisted the temptation to look at any real estate opportunities!!!
We are now beginning our 3 day Atlantic crossing!

So tomorrow afternoon there will be more high jinks, probably involving a lot of water. ...
