... on Sea Camp. They were anchored outside the entrance to Green Turtle so we dingied out to visit with them before they took off for Florida too. Our friends Dale & Mercedes from Ottawa were here at Leeward and we got together for dinner several times with them. It had been a couple years since we've seen then. They were with us on our very first trip to the Abacos. We left Green Turtle on Tuesday, March 25 with a good weather forecast bound for Marsh Harbor to provision ...

... right into the wind though, so we can’t put up the sails. It’s still a good passage and takes about 3 ½ hours. So, here we are in Black Sound at Green Turtle Cay. It seems to be a favorite among cruisers and everyone we have talked to loves it here. We’ve picked up a mooring ball, but it comes with nothing; no bathroom, shower, fresh water.
