  1. My family had been going to port A for over 60 years it’s our second home, after Harvey my daughter and I went down to Dave’s camp and served and cooked for almost 3,000 workers and residents a day. Headed that way again on the 9th of Sept and will be staying at the palace across from Fins down by the ferry and I can’t wait👍
