What a great afternoon we had with John and Tony on the whale watching
catamaran. After lots of phone calls over the weekend because the
weather had been so horrible, John decided to take us out on Sunday the
13th of September for an afternoon sail.
There were about 8 of us and also some
tourists. The weather was calm and every now and then we got a little
bit of sunshine. We had a great sail and when we came out on the sound

Many thanks again to John and Forrest for an
unforgettable day. And
thank you Tony for all the yummy goodies.
