OK, that wouldn’t be nice, would it?
Given that it’s unlikely that we’ll have internet until we make it to the Dominican Republic on Monday, I don’t think it would be nice to have our final post before a big passage be a joke. Yes, for those who were still sleepy-eyed while reading it, that last post was my pale attempt at an April’s Fools joke, even though everything I said about our friends on R Sea Kat was true.
Yesterday we cleared out of the Turks and Caicos with customs and are just about to make our way to Big Sand Cay to stage for our trip to the DR. We plan to leave there around 5:00 PM on Sunday, making the approximately 80 mile passage overnight. It looks as if we’re going to have a nice weather window which will either allow for some decent sailing and/or a calm motor, either of which we will happily accept. Our friends on Happy Times just left here with plans to head directly to Puerto Rico. We, on the other hand, will be making way for Luperon. We have read a lot about this place, both pro and con and we’ve even written a bit about it here on this blog. Like true journalists though, we feel that we need to check the place out for ourselves to form our own opinion. We’ll be sure to report back here to share what we think of the place. I bet we like it!
If we’re offline for a few days, don’t freak out. We’ll be back posting soon enough with details on the passage and our new ports of call. Hasta Luego (we need to start working on our Spanish)!
Where we tied up our dinghy in South Caicos.
Sadly, now south of Georgetown, we are locking our dinghy.
It was a bit shallow outside the channel.
Not quite sure what this building is (was?) but I liked the big wall.
We determined from reading the graffiti on the walls here that this abandoned dry swimming pool was once used as a weight lifting area.
There were plenty of small dogs here but they were all taking siestas!
The horses, on the other hand, were snacking.
This cool-looking fire truck was “Made in Canada” according to the sticker on its side.
The jail? Ken, can you confirm this?
We saw this sticker on the back of a pickup truck. I’m pretty sure there is no BJJ gym in South Caicos.
