At Sea Again

We are currently just of the coast of the Dominican Republic bound for the Turks and Caicos then the Bahamas. We left Boqueron, Puerto Rico yesterday (Thursday the 22nd) at 7:00 AM. We just saw a pod of what we think were pilot whales. They came straight for the bow of our boat and passed us up. Yesterday we had four large dolphins play at our bow for about 20 minutes, they were great. It is the mating season for the Humpback whale and they migrate through the area we are traveling in and end up in the Turks and Caicos, so we are very exciting about possible seeing them.

We are heading for Sand Cay in the Southern Turks, but depending on the wind we may not get there in light and if that's the case, then we will travel to Provo in the Caicos or just straight into the Bahamas, landing at Mayaguana.

Stats: 140 miles out of Puerto Rico, 27.5 hours travel time, our Lat/Long - N 19.31.480, W 069.02.340, 166 miles to the Turks.

Will keep you posted. Bye for now Mike and Kim
