... a fan!! If ever we return, I will be seeking them out! At the end of dinner, as if on cue, the local pups Molly and her 1/2 brother (whose name escapes me) came for a visit and gave us our puppy fix. I’m sure they know to show up for whatever might be leftover but Grant and I were convinced they came because we were the best guests.

Sailing to Freeport was a two day trip. I had both days off, enjoying them laying on cushions on the sky deck soaking in the sun. I woke up the first day and turned on my light, only to have it go out within a couple of minutes. I walked down the dark hallway assuming we were switching generators.
