So, with those goals in mind, we rejoined AU2 in Cane Garden Bay. Upon arrival we hailed them on the VHF and they told us that there had been some unpleasantness in the night due to a slightly north-of-east swell. Allegria added their voice to the conversation as they were one of the boats that had been anchored at the southern end of the basin where we normally do… They had been so uncomfortable they moved over to the north end and took a ball.

|3 seconds notice... "I'm about to take your picture!"|
We jumped up like we had been caught inflagrante dilecto… and were horrified to see the stern of Adventure US 2 just off our starboard stern quarter. No… I mean, they could touch us! As their dinghy davits threatened to snag our bicycle, we rushed to fix this.
We pulled in about 10 ft of scope on our chain and settled again for the night. That should do it! If they weren’t our friends we would have had to move as those on the mooring balls have the right of way here… Lucky for us they took that ball!

We motored against the wind, glad that we had decided to skip White Bay, Yost Van Dyke because we would have had to beat against this wind all the way up the island! Long Bay was beautiful and calm!
After settling in and having a quick nap, we took our Sundowners and stopped to pick up passengers for a beach run... that is, a run to the beach (not to be confused with a run on the beach which never happens). We walked the beach and even picked up a four-legged friend along the way.
