Georgetown is Ghost-town
Back to Georgetown we went, and dropped our anchor in a very nice spot right in front of the Chat-N-Chill Bar. There were over 225 boats in the harbor here three weeks ago, now? I counted about 40. It was like splits-ville, in the morning after we got there half of those boats headed north, starting their trip back to the states in time to beat the impending hurricane season. We are right behind them, and are working our way too. But first, we wanted to say goodby, even if just for now, to our friends on Echo Echo. We went over to help try to repair their mainsail furler that has gone out on them, but it was not to be. It is going to take a serious repair for that, and Neil said it may require pulling the mast off the boat to do it. Dang. Well, at least they have the headsail, and the run back to Florida is mostly downwind, so there's that. We had dinner that night on their boat, Joyce cooked up some fresh Blackfin Tuna, seared with sesame seeds. There was a fresh salad,lamb chops and even an American delicacy; Stove Top Stuffing! Jeannette and Neil had never had this American staple of dinner deliciousness, and thought that it was wonderful. The whole dinner was great, and a light rain chased us back to our boat, the next morning they were off to points south.
