    An interesting morning

    This morning I went out fishing very early. We were on the water at dawn and had a visitor in the form of the Dutch Coastguard frigate. They came up behind us and shadowed us for a couple of miles. They stayed about 1/4 mile of our stern but were closely watching us. As we approached the area of the refinery we were buzzed by a Marines helicopter equipped with a high magnification camera. Satisfied they turned back out toward Venezuela. They did stop another small boat fishing near us.

    Just goes to show that they are vigilantly monitoring the situation with attempted illegal crossings from Venezuela.

    Sounds like they are doing a good job patrolling at this point.
