April 21, 2016 passage from Long Island to Georgetown, Exumas

Today we had to sail back to Georgetown so Joe and Erin could fly home tomorrow.  We knew it was going to be a little windier than when we sailed over, but they were salty sailors by now and could handle it.   We were able to sail the whole way back without the motor.

We enjoyed cocktails in the cockpit during sunset.  There was a native bird flying near our boat, so Joe tried to feed it peanuts while Erin took photos.   We decided to get some crackers and pretty soon there was a flock of about 30 birds hovering near our boat.  Erin got some pretty good shots.  And as soon as we stopped throwing the crackers, they were gone.  We were glad they didn't land or hang about long enough to “soil” our boat.

Joe made his famous Thai peanut sauce that he made last year for us.  Dave and Joe added more really hot Thai chili sauce to their dishes.  Not sure they will sleep very well tonight.  After dinner, we all sat out on the bow of the boat and enjoyed the breeze and the full moon on their last night here.  When friends have to pack and go back to work, it really hits us that we are living the life. 
they are so proud of themselves for adding hot Thai chilis
