Current Location: Cocoa Point Anchorage, Barbuda
Miles Traveled: 10
Weather: Sunny, breezy (5-10 knots), low-80s
Highlights: Woke up to lots of bugs on the boat, so washed down the deck first, then hooked up and started the water maker. Dennis and Deb picked us up at 10:30 to go into Codrington to clear in. Pat (local guide) met us at the dock, guided us the half-mile walk to the customs office, rounded up the official, waited while we cleared in, then walked back to the dock with a quick stop at the grocery store for drinks and snacks. We then got an amazing tour in Pat's boat of the frigatebird colony in the north end of Codrington Lagoon. This colony is one of the largest in the world, and the frigatebirds are an amazing site to see, thousands nesting, resting, or hovering over the mangroves. Back to the boat around 4 to raise anchor and move around to the south side of the island to get protection from the northern swells that are forecast for the next few days. Long day wrapped up with a tasty dinner consisting of the rest of the barracuda (fried this time) with cole slaw and baked beans.
