beauty and a little chap was there to see us
off. Engine on 06:45 and en route five minutes later.
We had a cracking sail from Antigua,
the thirty three miles was easy with seas of Rita Scale Three, with few spray

us out. Customs and Immigration are in different buildings some trot away.

breakfast at 11:30 if they please. Bear was told to return after twenty minutes,
quite a while for a bowl of Frosties. He went back and took these pictures, the
Police Station has had a lick of paint since we were
here in May, but the Justices Building looks

Even 'one careful

ALL IN ALL A BRIEF BUT
GORGEOUS STAY ON THIS BEAUTIFUL ISLAND
