Kevin and Debbie did chores on the boat and then went for a walk around the resort and out on the point.  The wind picked up in the afternoon.  They ate dinner at marina's restaurant. Tomorrow will be an early departure for the crew, so they can get an early start for the crossing. Kevin will be closely monitoring the weather. This has been an experience of a lifetime and a dream of Kevin’s.

The people of the Abacos are gracious, welcoming and warm people.
