There were a number of fun nights in the marina as well. The Victory Bar & Grill had the best pizza! I think I had pizza every other day! Yolo was a good sushi restaurant – and it had a nice selection of cook food, too! I am known for wanting my protein cooked! I don’t ever eat it raw or “cooked” in lemon or lime juice, etc. I don’t want it looking transparent. And I never want to see it looking at me so all heads must be removed! I have accepted the heads and eyes of prawns and lobsters, though.
After a dinghy ride out of the lagoon past the Port of St. George's and into the area known as the Carenage, we explored the town of St. George's. Bob had spent time working on a yacht there when he was in college so we were off to find his old haunts! Following Wharf Road we found lunch at Sail Away Café. Apparently it has been remodeled recently, probably after hurricane damage, so he was pleasantly surprised. That is where Dennis ordered his Beer-arita. The margarita with a Corona inserted upside-down. You just lift the beer bottle a little and the beer joins the margarita. He said it was very refreshing and somewhat like a Shandy or another German drink. Their lobster wrap was delightful! I will go there again next year.

It was very hot in the town area where we were searching for the Digicel store and the fresh market. I received frustrating news from the Digicel store as they said my three-year-old Samsung Galaxy was too old for their app! What – that was an expensive unlocked phone! I have been struggling with Digicel connections and can’t seem to get online for a hot spot. It will be back to Digicel as soon as I find another store.
|Waiting for Neptune to arrive!|
|Look who is coming down the dock!|
The WARC fleet was called to Golden Dragon at the appointed hour for Neptune to appear. We were told to dress appropriately for the occasion. Several speeches were given, special drinks were served to the tadpoles (first timers) and the pollywogs (second timers) and others. Certificates were handed out and good fun was had by all! This has been the most creative group of sailors ever and fun is always in the works. I believe much of the credit goes to Taffy and Brian and a few others. Thanks, WARC 2016-17 for taking us into the fold!
