Finally back to George Town

On Valentine’s Day (and Patrick’s mom’s birthday – happy birthday, Faith!) we were up at 5, and it was darrrrk out. We had to get up that early in order to properly time our exit to the Exuma Sound side of the islands through Galliot Cut, the same way we had gone a few days before. We navigated by our instruments through the dark at almost low tide.

Dawn came on gradually as we headed for the Big Farmers Cay mark on the charts, and Galliot Cut.

We had a pretty uneventful sail / motorsail down to George Town, and we were glad we’d left early so that we got there around lunch time. Several other kid boats we had met back at Top of the Majors were headed to George Town too, and we all pulled in within a few hours of each other.

We headed to town right away to get some groceries…we were ready for a restock on most things and George Town has a good selection at their two grocery stores.

The next day we spent the afternoon at Chat & Chill and caught up with the friends who also came into George Town the day before.

On the 16th, we went to a 10th birthday pot luck for Adeline on African Dream. Her birthday is the 17th but we all had other plans for that day so we celebrated the day before. Cecelia and I made my Great Aunt Marian’s peanut butter cookies to bring along.

We are grateful for all the friends we’ve met while sailing. It’s so fun to be able to hang out and celebrate occasions like this with them!
