Went to St. Bonnett's Restaurant on the beach close to the pier. Had seafood platter shrimp & fries and bucket Corona beers w/limes slices for a reasoable price right on the beach across the street from the restaurant. Good time, Good Place.

Went real smooth. Ship was given clearance to enter port two hours late because of fog and pilot could not get out to ship. got in at 10 instead of 8 in the morning, but we were driving home from the port so it was not a real concern to us.
