We did decide to walk around town now that most of the people where gone from Sunday. It was much quieter today. A lot of the shops and restaurants were closed. My new favorite little pizza place was locked up tight! We returned to the restaurant we had dinner in the night before and decided to have a late lunch. Dave ordered the conch with salad and it was amazing - there was so much conch that he did not even try to stab my hand with his fork when I went searching for a piece off his plate! (if you know Dave, then you know he has a problem with sharing food - especially when it is on his plate and you just reach over with your fork and start stabbing at it!)
The day was quiet and easy. A nice thing. Can I do this every day? You bettcha! Although the quiet ends tomorrow. We had a little change of plans - We are crossing the Mona Passage tomorrow. We originally were going to go straight across into the Dominican Republic , about 77 miles. This would have taken us about 10 - 12 hours. We would still have to the next day sail around to Samana and check into customs, which is another 70 or so miles. So we decided to just sail straight there. We are going to leave here tomorrow around 07:00. This should put us arriving in Samana around 07:00 Thursday morning. Once in the DR the internet connections will only happen when I load up my dry bag with the computer – dinghy to shore and search for a WiFi connection! So do not be alarmed if you are not getting daily posting from me – I know you all will wait and keep checking to see if something new has been posted!! I promise as soon as I can - I will get a new post up! Let you all know how the 24 hour sail went!!
