Some more -

Heading further north in St George:




Overlook the bay. Upper right conner is the Custom House (lower gray building)


Weekend is the community days for the Bermudians. Everyone comes out to enjoy in town, park, on the beaches. No pushy tourists, I was so tanned and hiding my camera, they thought that I was a local.

Welcome home. I use Vinings Landing Marina in Little Creek to clear Customs. They will come to you on the boat and generally give permission to leave the boat for showers before they get there (ask nice). Fast and easy.

sail fast and eat well, dave

Just got home after a total of 22 day voyage. Took a long shower and exfoliated myself from head to toes. I missed the soft water sower at home.

Agreed, the return trip was long. No wind, wrong wind and misjudging the gulf stream, but it is still a great trip. Can't wait to do more off shore sailing again.

Will reflect on the trip later. Thanks everyone for the helpful inputs.
