Patouche Sailing cruise

This is probably the best day of the whole trip. We signed up to do a snorkel trip with Patouche charters. They were one of the few places that returned our calls AND would take credit cards. Fay and Shane were a good crew, took us to nice places, and pointed out the best places …

Tortola

Woke up at the normal time but the boat was strangely quiet. Half the passengers were gone. They had to get up at 4:30am to get transferred to the airport for a 7am flight. We decided to wait until most of the people who had deadlines were gone, so we just relaxed on board. Around …

Virgin Gorda

We weren’t feeling up to going to ‘The Baths’ today, so we decided to just stay on board. That’s disappointing, as I’ve heard ‘The Baths’ is pretty interesting.

Saint Barths

Preparing to leave

We’re off on another vacation … this time to the Caribbean for a Windjammer cruise and some time on the British Virgin Island of Tortola. Riley has figured it out he’s seen the duffel bags and knows we’re going away. He’s not in a good mood. Ginny has a cough that hasn’t gotten any better …

Sea Fever

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky, And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by, And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking, And a grey mist on the sea’s face and a grey dawn …
