Saw Bermuda in mid-morning and heard concussion of heavy artillery. Cleaned outside of watertank in main cabin as we entered into St George’s. Cannot go ashore because, as crew, we have no visas. Son-of-a-bitch.

Gil sneaked ashore anyhow after dark.

Santa Rosa came in at dusk. This not going ashore is hell. Phillies win opener 6-2 against Giants, as Reds lose to Cards.

Loudspeaker tonight for first time and it certainly was a thrill to hear the music and the news of home.
