Girl's weekend

For a change in perspective I went to Hotel on the Cay with my girlfriends, Jen and Kirby.

We started with champagne

relaxed on the beach

and in the water

and ate a lovely dinner out

We were celebrating Jen's last weekend on St. Croix. Boy is she going to be missed!

Brian & Lexi's Wedding

We were invited to the wedding of Brian & Lexi on Rainbow Beach at sunset.

It was as perfect as they come with one exception-

this was Jen's last sunset on St. Croix.

(for a while)

Very Good Friday

Who's that back there skiing on the Caribbean Sea?

Take a guess.

So Flat Calm

it seems like we should be able to skip rocks to St John.

The Three Stages of Seasickness

First, you think you might die.

Second, you wish you would die.

Then, you realize that you won't die and lose all hope of ever being okay again.

Lisa may have reached a fourth.

Speaking of Big Yachts

a couple of weeks ago I went to meet Lisa and Jen at Shoy Beach

and found them conspiring to board Shalimar.

Soursop Bandits

I guess this means they're fruit bats.

Bath Day

The Baths on Virgin Gorda!

After following a trail through tunnels of granite

and by giant boulders

and through some tight squeezes we came out on the beach at Devil's Bay
where we put on masks and fins and snorkeled our way back.

After checking in to the BVIs on Tortola we sailed across to White Bay on Jost Van Dyke.

There was plenty of room at the Soggy Dollar.

Which meant no waiting to try a hand at the well worn ring game.

Kindred Crew

I got a phone call asking if I'd be available to work as First Mate aboard Kindred Spirit for a weekend charter to the BVIs

After a nasty start the weather cleared and we picked up our guests on St Thomas. We then headed to St John to spend the night in Leinster Bay.

Sometimes it pays to answer the phone.

Worst Job Ever

Part of my job today involved running offshore to a tanker to pick up a couple of "wall-washers".

Their job is to climb down into the holding tanks onboard the tanker to clean and inspect to make sure that any new petroleum product that gets loaded in won't be contaminated by whatever was in there previously.

No thanks!

Rascal has a knack for testing ripeness.
