|It was a great day for a crossing really could not of been any better.|
It was a beach day for sure 90 degrees
When we were rounding Peanut Island we came across these floating Tiki huts some with pool slides on them and large grills, I bet that they are a fun place to party! The houseboat is actually a restaurant if you enlarge it (Click on any photo) you will see "they deliver"
We spent the night actually 2 nights at Lake Park marina it was quite nice and the company even better, we had never heard of this marina but it was where No Snow was going so we tagged along. The next day Ron had rented a car and took us along with them to US customs to check in. At the customs office (which was located in the cruise ship terminal) we met up once again with most of the boats that had left the West End and crossed over the day before. I must say. checking in was a little painful in that the officer was a bit of a d**k it was not a proud moment being an American amongst Canadians, British and New Zealanders. Yes they have a job to do, but there was NO reason other than being in the power position to treat these people as poorly as he did. They all had their papers, cruising permits, visas etc, there was just no reason for them to be treated so poorly, I felt badly. But all is done, we are back and of course the officer had to bust us as well, but everyone was good to go.
Ron and Donna we hope you have a great time visiting your friends on the west coast and have a save and fun trip back to Ottawa and we hope to see you again next winter.
|Hmmm you just never know what you will see. A flying dinghy?|
|The Juniper lighthouse|
|People and their owners a day on the water|
|What is that!|
|The little tug, I couldn't see a name on this one but there is a small tug up north further named TOOT TOOT!|
|They are back, while in the Bahamas we saw Sea Turtles, Sting Rays, Sharks, Flying fish and some very large fish jumping from the water like 4' long but we only saw 1 dolphin.|
