|Remove tape.... then stand back and approve of paint job.|
|Skip and Kim zip over in John H to visit her fellow Pittsburghers on s/v Megerin in Francis Bay.|
|Getting right into the swing of things with painkillers on Jost Van Dyke.... or "Hey honey, hold my drink while I take a photo!"|
|Kim, literally getting into the swing|
|Bubbly pool? What bubbly pool?|
|Brown food was the bane of my existence as a food photographer. It's not very pretty but it sure tasted good.|
|Yep... it tasted good.|
|Very attentive, and ultimately disappointed, kitty waiting under our table hoping we wouldn't eat everything on our plates.|

We rented a car one day to take in all of Virgin Gorda, which is really something to see from the ridge road. The Baths were a must and we walked through the boulders through to Devils Bay. Of course we had another roti for lunch.

|Another day, another roti for lunch... us, fat and happy and full of roti at the Fat Virgin Cafe.|
|Kim has no trouble lounging at the fabulous pool at the YCCS.... it's most definitely a favorite spot.|
Kim was such an easy guest to have on board and her visit was really too short. It's taken her all these years to come for a stay and we really, really, really hope she comes back. Soon. Any time. Anywhere. (In case you're reading this Kim!)
|Bye Kim! Come back soon!|
It was back to business when Kim left; we moved Saralane into the marina at Nanny Cay where I stayed for two weeks or so while Skip delivered the Outbound 46 Wynot from Tortola to Rhode Island. Aside from a short diversion to Bermuda to wait out some bad weather, his trip was uneventful which is just as it should be.

I had a couple of sweltering weeks in Nanny Cay, slowly doing boat chores and a few fun things mixed in. Our friends Dave and Wendy were down on a charter of their own and we caught up one evening for dinner.

If we tear ourselves away from Francis Bay I'll have something to write about, but for now we're pretty content.
