Title: 9:35.91N 79:26.36W Green Turtle marina

We are on our way back to Shelter Bay. And on the way we have gone to Green Turtle Bay. The marina is almost empty. The access is trough a very narrow canal (must be man made). We almost gave up because it was very hard to see it. Here is a little restaurant, which we shall try for dinner, a beach and a hotel (at least there is a sign that says so). We pay $15 for a night, and here is even washing machines, and I think you may buy diesel.
We had to motor sail most of the way here, because of very little wind. For just a short period we were able to let the engine rest, and that was very lucky, because suddenly we heard a knocking in the hull, and then a log came out from the stern. It was not very big, but had the propeller been rotating, I do not even dare think of the consequences. As it was, nothing bad happened.
After that we were much more alert of course, and that paid, because there was a lot of debris in the water, and we saw more logs and planks, and we had to make several dodging maneuvers. One pretty big log was easy to spot, because a big bird was sitting on it. Just to warn us I guess. Very kind of the bird!
After about an hour the water again became more clean, and we relaxed a little.
Now coffee in the cockpit, then a shower, then sundowner and dinner at the restaurant.
I think Eva will tell you more tomorrow.
