Last FULL DAY in GTC -- before heading toward USA

16 April 2018 | GTC
DEAN -- after the storm -- sunny and warm
Last DAY at GTC --
Made it a full day at GTC – OUR Last until next season…
Filed the float plan with Customs, and Border security; Tried their new ROAM program – CRASHED !!! several times… SEEKER, nor Second WiNd could get through the “TRIP” page… Crashes every time.
OH well… have to do it the old way…
You wouldn’t think that a couple of US Citizens coming back into their own country would be so complicated… BUT the Gov’t has a way of making it JUST THAT WAY !!! complicated.
Anyway… we walked into town for one last LUNCH… we went to Miss Emily’s Blue BEE Bar… for beers, Goombay Mashes; and FOOD…. NICE… then to the grocery stores…. And then home to the boats…
We were ALL (SEEKER; AB; Dalmatian) invited to SECOND WIND for Laura’s HOME MADE PIZZA… YUMMMM YUMMMM delicious !!!! NICE evening… We might be saying goodbye to them (Second Wind) for a while, Unless they change their mind tonight, and decide to drop mooring lines and come with us all. SEEKER; and AB are planning on staging for the Stream Crossing at Great Sale Cay… tomorrow night… then cross on WED evening/ Thursday wee hours…arrive Fort Pierce after dawn on Thursday…. Dalmatian might just head due NORTH…. And see how far they can get before the weather turns on them…
SO…. After the PIZZA evening, Susan and I put the dinghy motor on the aft deck rail; and the dinghy (George) on the foredeck (we’re not dragging the dinghy through that CHOP tomorrow; that would cost us a good knot or two in boat speed, and milage).
So… we still have to go through our “GO TO SEA” LIST… and tie things down inside the boat… and straighten up the cockpit… FIT for night sailing…. (everything in it’s PLACE… etc. so you can reach out and touch whatever you need, in the dark)…
OK… LONG Day… started early with the STORM passing through here in the wee hours…. SO… not a whole lot of sleep last night…. Good NIGHT.
