Around 2:30, Kim woke me up. She was crying and was feeling very uncomfortable.  The rash had gotten worse.  She was scratching the rash and could not get any sleep.  I knew our boat did not have running lights, so we could not leave at this hour.  We talked for a while and I held her.  I was hoping that she would relax enough to get some sleep.  She eventually went out into the living room to read.  After a while, she fell asleep.

At 5:00 she came in to see if I would wake the guys to give us a ride to Gananoque.  I took a shower so I would be ready and then found Kim to be asleep.  I did not want to wake her, so I grabbed the camera and shot some sunrise pictures.  I then went to grab a bite to eat.  She eventually stirred around 7:00.  I got Jim up and got Kim ready.

I was worried about getting her back into the US.  If they suspected she may be sick, they would stop her at the border.  We sailed through easily.  We headed to Alexandria Bay and their ER.

It was not busy at the ER.  The lady at the desk said it will get busier as the day goes on.  I brought my computer because I thought we would be there for a while.  The doctor quickly came in and asked a few questions.  He gave her two new prescriptions and we were done.  It took longer at the pharmacy than at the ER.

We did some grocery shopping before we left the US.  We vastly under estimated the water consumption on the island.  We needed two more cases of water!  Once in Canada, we also needed to make a booze run.  For some reason we are going through liquor, wine, and beer at a furious pace!  We got all of the essentials before heading to the island.

Tonight was our turn to cook dinner.  By the time we got to the island, we had to start cooking.  Kim was nervous whether people would like her food.  She has been stressing about this for weeks.  The benefit for me was the near constant Mexican recipes she tried to find the best ones for dinner tonight!  She did not need to worry; everyone loved the food.  She only brought three avocados, because she thought no one would eat the guacamole.  That was the first thing to go.

I taught Mary something that she needed to know; how to make Rum Swizzles.  She got pretty good at it.  There were two strengths; Beth's and mine, and Kim’s and Bria’s!  I told her that I could not be prouder of her!  However, I noticed that there was only a fifth of the bottle left at the end of the night.  Where did Mary put all of that rum?!?!?
