After having paid up our incidentals at the Marina/Hotel and taking one last swim in their pool, we cast off following Rolejio and headed for the "bar". We were delighted to find Rob and Sue this side of the bar to send us on our way and totally surprised and to see Bill and Jean on the other side wishing us a safe journey.
The night started off quite nice but things picked up around 2:00 or 3:00 AM and rough took on a whole new meaning. Now, so far, we had judged calmness (or lack there of) as "Porter Rough" and Hanson Calm" but we have a new level. That would be "Reuben and Adam Wild" and I don't care to take that ride again. Befoer the day was over we saw sustained winds of 27 to 28 and gusts up to 31. WOW!
