|Squall near Antigua|
We tried our luck once again with our fishing gear and actually caught a good sized mahi. He got away before we could get the gaff into him though. Very disappointing!
About 8 hours to go until Antigua I thought I saw a white boat in the distance - but then it seemed to disappear. I thought that was odd until I looked again and saw whales breaching and crashing back down sending up huge sprays of white water. We followed the spray from their spouts as they came closer to us, but they sounded and this was the only photo I got.

We arrived in Deep Bay Antigua late Sunday night, dropped the hook and dropped into bed. In the morning we sailed around the corner into Jolly Harbor to clear in.

Now that we have the conversion from dollars to euros down pat... we have to switch to converting dollars to EC. The local currency for Antigua, Barbuda and several other Eastern Caribbean nations is the EC which is worth roughly 38 cents. I'll need my calculator....
