We got up to rain and lots of wind this morning, rented a car that arrived about noon and headed north to check out Long Island. We drove as far north as we could …..the road abruptly ended, then stopped at Cape Santa Maria where it is said Columbus grounded his ship the Santa Maria. Later we had “ linner “ at The Stella Maris Club and checked e-mail…..quite the site……4 of us all on their own laptop checking e-mail……isn’t life grand!!
What great fun at the dock……4 boats all got together and had drinks and telling stories……this is cruising life!!
Today we drove south to Simms and crossed the Tropic of Cancer. We are truly in the tropics now!! Also on this trip we saw “Dean’s Blue Hole” which is a 6000 foot deep hole just off the beach. The colors of blue are incredible and the fact we were able to find some sea beans made the trip worthwhile.
A quick stop at the bakery landed us a fresh baked loaf of bread hot from the oven and a coconut cream pie…….so much for diets!!
