We arrived along with eight other boats to join the four already here, including Synergy and Discovery. Leaving Georgetown around seven, we sailed over to Joe Sound, the less traditional route, hoping for fish for dinner. Here, you are wise to fish only in the deep water, otherwise you risk catching cinguatera, a fish toxin that can lead to numb extremities, paralysis and the big one, death. (The reef fish in the shallow feast on the algae on which it grows. Or something like that.)
No fish were caught by any of the boats in our flotilla, which were soon to become our newest friends.
We rented a car with Seabiscuit so that they could see the Columbus Monument and we could look for sea glass. The trip to the Monument is just something you need to get out of the way. The road up there is tortuous, and unless you have a four wheel drive, stupid to attempt. It is a strenuous walk up. But once there you have done it. It is one of the several places that claim Columbus's stop in the New World, and I wonder how they can figure out the date of arrival.
