Our first order of business this morning was to connect with the little ones from home. I had added money to our BTC plan since we had turned in the mifi so we would not be caught short on this day. It was early morning and they were wide awake so instead of us calling them, they called us. Happy Easters everywhere! Ian has grown another inch at least and “saw” the Easter Bunny, while Elinor with her gorgeous smile tells us of how she used a trap to try and catch the Easter Bunny and finally Tessa who is ecstatic that the Easter Bunny left her a bow for her hair that matches her American Girl Doll, Kit. So much energy first thing in the morning and beautiful smiles made for a day of smiles for us.

We needed to get out of Marsh Harbor so Raffi and Lisa on Windfall had invited us to join them at a beach party in Green Turtle Cay at the Bluff House. We weighed anchor and headed through the dreaded Whale Cay Cut and then up to Green Turtle where we make some new acquaintances. We are rolling on the floor laughing at some of the tall tales being told around our table.

We met another couple heading to the Chesapeake which is a perk as we have not found a buddy boat for our crossing as of yet. Typically by now we would have someone lined up to cross with but seems some are still willing to wait a bit longer for a stronger sailing passage while others (like this writer) are just ready to get home. So we will leave as soon as we assess our email from Chris Parker. We have asked him for a routing home that will give us the best trip possible to make the Chesapeake by Saturday.

We already believe we will only be able to get to Morehead or Cape Lookout as the weather window closes early Saturday and if we have not covered enough ground that will be our fallback destination. But as we are sitting in the cockpit enjoying our coffee we see how calm it is and think we may opt for a head start. Who knows......but we will be home shortly.

So as we are enjoying our new friends at the Bluff House, I spied a banana tree. I have never seen one in the Bahamas and after three seasons and at the end of our third I am finding this beauty. Oh my this entire point here at Green Turtle Cay is just beautiful. I wish we had more time in these Cays of the Abacos but when you get this far up, you have one thing on your mind......get home. Not much left in the tank to explore anything new.
