Our son, Pete, arrived today after a delay of about 40 hours. After we got him settled in, we set sail for Egg Island in the Elutheras. It was a great day for sailing 35 miles. And we had about 7 hours to visit, with a nap in there somewhere. Just as we arrived in the area and wanted to anchor, we caught a barracuda off of our fishing line that we drag behind the boat. It was about 3-4 ft long and we released him. We hope to catch something we can eat someday. We were the only boat in the pretty anchorage.

After breakfast, we washed sheets and towels. Since we were going to just stay here and play for the day, we could hang out laundry. Today we ran our generator to make water. So we decided to use the hookah system to enjoy the water near our boat. Pete and I “dove” within 100 feet of the boat with the air hoses attached to a compressor. There were a lot of small fish in the coral heads in the area. After about 30 minutes of that, we snorkeled further from the boat. Pete just loved being back in the water, floating, and watching the world under water. Dave stayed back at the boat watching over everything and grilled chicken for us. It was a nice day of just hanging out and getting Pete back on “island time”.
