George Town is the crossroads for cruisers. Folks coming north to avoid the hurricanes or folks moving south into the Caribbean all stop here for a time. Just before we arrived there were almost 400 boats in the harbor. Now only about 200 and the number is dropping daily. The cruisers are very organized in making sure fun will be had. Each morning the cruisernet opens with the weather, then business news, then general boaters info. Each day at 2:30 the volley ball games begin and there's always a poker game, sailboat race, or picnic gathering going on. It's like summer camp for grownups. Our first day here we ran into Kent, our friend from St Petersburg, walking down the street in town. Later that day at the volleyball game we found ourselves next to Walt and Pat, good friends we met in Marathon nearly a year ago. Fantastic! old friends and new. A great guy named Richard came by and he figured out our 12V fridge problem in about 20 minutes - Walt introduced us at volleyball and he came to the boat the next morning. Sad to say we said goodbye to Southern Spirit, our buddy boat since Cat Cay. They are heading over to Long Cay. We will miss Michael and Gale very much. On the other hand, we are getting very excited to see Zack and Sieka - they arrive next week to spend a few days with us. This is a great place and more updates will be coming since we will be here another couple of weeks.
