We woke yesterday to a Haitian motor-freight boat aground near the freight dock here in Hope Town. This one is different than the one that we have seen in the harbor before.
As Dave was motoring by in the skiff, the captain came out and motioned to his hat, indicating that he really liked it. Dave remembered that he left his old safari hat back on New Horizon, so he grabbed it and gave to the captain. You can imagine the smile he wore along with this hat...
After supplies that local Haitians have accumulated in the area are wrapped in plastic to protect them from the seas of what must be a rough passage, they are loaded on board. We saw mattresses, chairs, pails, bicycles, and wheelbarrows, among many other items needed.
Tonight at high tide the ship will motor out of the harbor and head south. I wish them calm seas and lots of luck!
