Although I was up early, I didn't make breakfast as Audrey from Leila had invited me over for scones at about 9:30 but I did have some coffee until I got the radio notification to come over for tasty fresh warm scones with butter and jam. By the time we'd finished it was already almost 11am and they subsequently departed for a sail and to spend the night in Marigot; I decided to stay put in order to use the internet connectivity to arrange all my travel and boat storage plans and I took 2 dives at Turtle Reef and Créole Rock which managed to fill in the afternoon very nicely indeed. After that I went ashore and met a very nice couple from Michigan on their honeymoon trip and we spent a couple of hours at a LoLo eating and talking; finally shutting the place down at about 11pm with some locals.
