time we book we are talking about taking our parents and kids. [...] Not only is your house a treasure but you are a first
class guy. That is very evident in the way you conduct yourself. "

"We were finally able to make schedules
mesh and were able to take advantage of the trip last month.
The accommodations were excellent, as advertised it was a large house right on the water. Jack made sure that we were
meet by our guide at the airport in March Harbor and provided us with transportation for use while there. We were able
to fish every day except for one weather day. and explored several wonderful fishing spots in Bahamas. Bones were plentiful,
though our skill was less so, but with the excellent guides we were able to catch fish. The food at the house was excellent
with an island lady personally catering all our meals. Jack provided beverages and saw to it that we had everything

was a great cook and very accommodating to our requested meals. We enjoyed her company.
I fished with Ricardo yesterday because Patrick was tied up with
business. Ricardo put me on some bonefish and I caught several. It was a great experience. I'll have
to learn to cast into the wind before my next visit. Patrick was very kind to drive me back from Sandy Point so we had
a chance to talk. He is a very friendly guy. He is busy getting ready for crayfish season.
All is well at the house. We had a great
supporting the Wildlife Foundation of Virginia (and DU and other organizations)."

"I wanted to take a moment to let you know
how wonderful we found Bon Ami during our stay last week. Everything was great - the weather, the food (Debbie is a
superb cook and a delightful person), all of which contributed to a terrific vacation for all of us. As one of our group
remarked upon first stepping onto the back deck and looking at the magnificent vista of Casuarina Point - "this is absurdly
beautiful." Everything went smoothly on Abaco from arrival to departure, and none of us really wanted to leave.
(I returned to San Francisco to be met by driving wind and rain, which is supposed to continue for the next seven days
- so back it is to reality for me.) If you ever need someone to pen a recommendation or testimonial for your piece of
heaven in the Bahamas, please feel free to call on me. Again, thank you for the great vacation. Now, back
to work (sigh)."

"3 couples for a week in Paradise. One day caught 25 bonefish and 30 snapper. Made for a great dinner that
evening. Love the massive windows and views and being steps to the water. Felt like we had a sound machine on with the
sound of the waves on the beach at night! Highly recommend Pete's and Curley Tails as tasty places to eat! Appreciate
you checking in on us to make sure all was well! Would make a great family spot as well."
