Everyone’s in a really good mood and they seem to be enjoying themselves.

Any favorite wildlife sightings, quotes, games to share?

We saw Skittles(the seal) and a pod of porpoises.

Describe the anchorage or moorage where Carlyn is right now:

We’re currently anchored just off of a beach on Turn Island for the night.

Cap Sante, the first marina that we stopped at and did tests on, wasn’t very salty and was very clean.
