Dan and I were up and preparing for our expected pre-noon departure from San Andrres. Water in the boat, Spaghetti Pie ala “Alexis” and banana bread prepared, Internet Shop for posting blog and reading emails, things stowed and ready for the short run to San Andres’ sister island, Providencia, where we would anchor for the night and get our Colombia exit papers. Things don’t always happen as we plan them and Agent Rene brought the news that the officials were busy this morning and we wouldn’t have our papers until around 5:00 PM. Can’t make it to anchorage so this changes everything! Scratch Providencia, get us our Zerpa from San Andres to the Caymans and we will begin the long, two-nighter this evening. After sending Rene on his way, Dan and I headed for the nearby Sunrise Hotel for an afternoon of poolside cocktails and lunch interrupted only by dips in the inviting pool. Lovely afternoon!!

By 5:30 we were casting off and wending our way through the narrow channel to the sea. The currents were favoring us and at times we were making a good 11knt.
