Not that we've had our fill of the US and British Virgin Islands, but there's a break in the weather during the next few days so we're going to head to St. Martin. It's been an especially windy winter here and it sounds like lots of people are going to take advantage of the lighter winds and smaller seas to move around.
We've spent the past two weeks visiting with sailing friends and with Miles and Lex who came to stay at Maho Bay Camps for a week. It's been chilly (really!) and we haven't been swimming much so I have no slow fish photos for this post. Here are a few non-wildlife photos though.
|Pretty beach on Prickly Pear Island - overlooking Eustatia Island (recently purchase by the "Google Guy" as he's known here.)|
|I know I can make something with this defunct kite we found on Prickly Pear.|
|We both need haircuts. Miles took this photo of us on Saralane in Francis Bay.|
|Madeline, Skip, Miles and Lex at Maho Bay.|
|Everyone here travels by boat. I wonder if goats have to pay full fare?|
|Saw this little guy having a snack in Trellis Bay... I'm not quite sure how to caption this photo.|
We counted at least twenty people on deck on "Bliss" and they could have fit another twenty. To give a little perspective, on Saralane we can comfortably lean over the boom - on Bliss, the underside of the boom is a few feet above the crews' heads. Wow.
|This powerboat comes with it's own tiny crew to hose the salt water off the bow.|
|We sailed by this yacht after the races were over. Cool spinnaker!|
