The boat is packed, the fuel is stowed........

.....and we're ready to go - off on the next leg to the Azores.
We enjoyed our brief stay in Bermuda and would have liked to have had more time to explore its 181 islands. It is a very cosmopolitan island and our bus trip to and from Hamilton was fun. We even stopped at one point and the bus was filled of school children - lots of them. Hamilton is an interesting place but I think we preferred the quieter and more laid back charm of St. Georges. It did however have Marks and Spencer for Susan to browse.
Bernie helped with the lines leaving Captain Smokey's and was there at the Custom Dock as well to help - what a really nice man. Our neighbours on the German boat waiting for their forestay are no nearer leaving after two weeks on the island. The forestay has disappeared somewhere in the labyrinth that is customs. We wish them well however.
Another boat we know, Aragorn, is some where ahead of us as they left earlier this morning - we did after all have to purchase a considerable amount of fuel!
So we're off in sunshine and reasonably flat seas - we are heading mainly east for the next few days to avoid some bigger winds to the north and to await a cold front to pass. We were also bid farewell by a pod of dolphins.
More in due course........
