After a great time in the Bahamas we left Georgetown at exactly noon today. We are currently underway to the Dominican Republic aiming for Samana. The option to stop a day earlier in Luperon remains open in case the weather deteriorates. It looks like we will be rounding Long Island around dinner time tonight. We will then head to the NE tip of Acklins Island. We caught the first fish two minutes after casting the line! However, we thew it back to its friends as we have had our fill of tuna recently. What a luxury. Tomorrow we will try another lure to see if we can catch a different type of fish. The monkeys are having their nap at the moment. Pasta is on the menu for dinner tonight. Check under position to see our most up to date location.
