|After taking on fuel and ice ourselves, we pondered
staying overnight. Eventually, the smell of garbage, and
the sound of barking dogs convinced us..
|...to leave for the solace of the open ocean, and head
directly for the dreaded Windward Passage between
Haiti and Cuba.
|So Bob dropped the dinghy and pushed them out to sea
|We were greeted by the Mayor, who arranged for a taxi
to take us out to the salt flats to see the flocks of
flamingos that feed there.
|With absolutely no wind, the other boat tried to leave by
fending off with a long stick
|But soon ended up against a mud bank
|When we arrived at Great Inagua, we found the small
harbor full of Haitian Fishing boats taking on ice.
|One was kind enough to make room for us and in we
went, tying up against a crumbling concrete wharf
behind the other boat
