As we were heading back to the boat, Lauren and Van on Gratitude pulled into the anchorage and we invited them over for drinks. They were headed south and we were going north so it would probably be the last times our paths would cross.
The next day we were pulling up the anchor to move up to Staniel Cay so we could pick up Verne the next day when Ted on Sundays Child pulls up next to us and said he & Maggie and Chessie are going to be in Black Point doing laundry and chores throughout the day. Baxter told Ted about the lionfish from the previous day and we put the anchor back down, decided to stay and they were off to find lionfish, lobster, or something else to spear. Meanwhile, Maggie and I took Chessie and Kala to the mile long beach that shows up at low tide and the girls were in heaven. They ran, played, swam and wore themselves out! It was perfect.
That night Ted and Maggie came over to the boat and we broke out the all time classic movie Captain Ron and we talked about future plans to sail to Saint Potato (if you haven't seen the movie - there is your motivation to watch it.)
