Highbourne Cay Marina, our first official rendezvous point.  14  PDQ's visible, 3 more at south dock, making a total of SEVENTEEN!
Friendly birds.
Internet connection is hard to come by out
here.  If you don't have a BTC (Bahamas Tel
Co) data-enabled sim-card, you must rely on
the Marina WiFi's which are satellite-based,
somewhat intermittent and very pricey -
sometimes as much as $10/100MB of data!
