Just a quickie post to say we're in St. Martin. Before we left, we spent the week swimming, snorkeling and hiking around Peter and Norman Islands.

The forecast was good to actually make the whole trip to St. Martin this time and since we planned to leave before dawn, we sailed back up to North Sound in Virgin Gorda to make our departure simple. 

We had an uneventful trip - in both the sailing and fishing departments. Sadly no mahi flung themselves into the cockpit. In fact no mahi even came near our lures. Next time.

We spent two nights anchored out in Marigot and spent one afternoon swimming in Happy Bay, just north of Marigot, before we moved into Simpson Bay Lagoon which is NOT a swimmy kind of place.

We'll be here for a bit.....

Ooooh. Amazing sunrise. I can almost feel the hugeness (is that a word?) of the whole scene.

Did you say "land Ho!"...when you saw land...?

Got your email.
Glad you had an easy sail across and are well anchored in St. Martin.
Write again soon. xo
