I was tempted to just repost last August's blog post 'Abandoned Ship' instead of doing a new post, but I can at least add in the photos of our last stop at Long Bay on Virgin Gorda. We spent a few nights here in the lee of Mountain Point, where the bottom is sand, sand and more sand but for a fringe of reef right along the shoreline. It's a beautiful spot and one that's only tenable in the summer months when there's no north swell likely.
|Saralane seen from our snorkeling point of view|
|Did I mention it was all sand here?|
We procrastinated as long as we could, then headed into the Yacht Harbor for our haul out.
|The captain still keeps watch|
|Saralane gets a power wash|
|Skip and Maurice once again try to figure out how to fix the *%@# centerboard.|
|Haul out lunch.|
Finished? OK... here's where Saralane sat when we left for the ferry to head back to the states for a few months of work, family, friends, plentiful water, flush toilets, air conditioning and countless other things we don't have and don't miss (except family and friends) living aboard Saralane.
I hate to leave with a photo of Saralane high and dry, so here's a shot from our last anchorage. Maybe this year while we're back we'll get around to those blog posts about the renovation of Saralane.....
