Leaving Green Turtle Cay
It is Sunday morning, about 7 am. We are having oatmeal for breakfast and plan on leaving GTC at 8 am. There are at least 8 boats leaving today to catch up with 2 that left yesterday. Everybody has gotten the urge to get home. Some people will be going to Stuart, FL, other to Ft. Pierce( our destination).
Spent the last couple of days just getting ready to go. Had dinner with David and Peg Shakke. David's family was down for the week in one of the villas. In fact, David's father, John, taught at MIT in Course 1, Civil Engineering, while I was there.
Joy and Faune of Iolite spent Friday morning exploring New Providence, the name of the town on Great Turtle Cay. We had dinner with Alex, Faune, Gary and Janet at the Bluff House Marina, across the sound from GTC. Both marinas had a deal where you got food credits up to your dock age fee, which means we basically ate for free while we were here. The alternative was to get a mooring out in the harbor, and eat on the boat. Joy calls this past week my VACATION WEEK, and now it is back to normal life.
