The waves slammed us up and down until I was sore in every joint.

We finally rounded the point and got it astern of us. We were soaked as well as sore.

We motored along and came to Rocky Cay and Sandy Cay and all the rest and stopped at Pidgeon Cay for lunch where I had a tuna special and 2 beers for $7.

We saw some turtles and Silver Kings and walked around for a few minutes while our meal was being prepared.

Was glad to get back to the big island. Paid our $12.50  each, went to Connies and had a beer and then home for a shower and a rest before the party at the Broussard residence.
