3: The Bonac Witch was our home for 7 serene days
4: First stop was the Indians, which are rock formations with great snorkeling . We also went to Norman Island. We swam and snorkeled. There was a really cool cave there that we explored. | I (Jo) was so nervous when I first jumped in to snorkel I thought I was going to hyper ventilate!
5: Sarah smiles .........
6: My toes in in the sun. We stopped in at the Willy T for a cocktail, there was quite a show going on with some fellow sailors ! It was rated R. The Mooring ball is from Cooper Island.
7: You can see the reflection of the boat and sail in Mike's sunglasses
8: Sailing and Mark snorkeling
9: Every single day was beautiful.......
10: This is Necker Island. It is owned by Sir Richard Branson. He bought it for $300,000. It was breathtaking and very secluded.
11: We arrived at the Baths early in the morning. Hooked a mooring ball and headed to land. It was beautiful but became really busy in the afternoon. The surf was very dangerous to swim in when we had to go back to our dingy!
12: There were rock formations, and caves to explore at the Baths. | The Baths is where Mike Cahill was almost swept out to sea ...
14: Sarah, Mike and Mark swam under out boat at the Baths. Joanne Moll & I required more time and bravery to attempt that. | The Baths
16: Cigars and a beer and Mark & Mike were on their way.....
17: The escape hatch !
18: This island was our favorite. Soooo beautiful and peaceful. The water was amazing and we saw a Barracuda and a sea turtle. | Anegada
20: I'm gonna soak up the sun .... I'm gonna tell everyone to lighten up. Cheryl Crow | We shared a taxi cab with some people who were going to the local bakery so we tagged along (yellow building) We got some treats and had a tour of the island. Such a neat little island with very primitive living, houses, schools and people. SIMPLICITY
22: Here is the Taxi cab outside of the bakery. Mike looks like a Mexican hitchhiker. Below is our dingy ride back to the boat to get ready for dinner. ... LOBSTER | You can't really describe the scenery or the color of the water to people. Something you just have to see .... Bucket List
23: Lee is chillin and wtching the sun set.
24: We had a pretty amazing lobster dinner on Anegada. Our table and chairs were right in the sand and music played afterwards.
25: We met some fun people and we raided the Gift Shop. It was great fun. Lee and I got Pirate Bandanas
26: Above is the Captains photo. These are the 4 people who sailed our vessel for 7 days! They were fantastic
27: We had a free bottle of Rum on our boat from the Moorings. It did deliver some shots to the Captains
28: View from the top of Jost Van Dyke
29: Sarah's making salad. We spent one night on the boat for dinner and made spaghetti. It was delicious and relaxing.
30: Mike and I at Foxy's
31: Sarah, Mark, Mike & I took the dingy to the Soggy Dollar Bar Our time there was shortened because we had to drive the dingy back and couldn't risk doing it in the dark> The next time we will stay longer and drink more painkillers | While trying to get back in the dingy, Mark lost a lens in his glasses, this is his Pirate face :)
32: This guy made friends with us when we arrived at the bar. He was friendly and funny. We didn't know he was the performer. When he began performing he was pulling people up on stage . Sarah, Joanne & I knew it was likely he might chose one of us, so we hid in the bathroom
33: He was a great singer and really hammed it up when he sang Strokin. It was a night of fun and more good drinks. | We were strokin ......
34: Back to port to turn in our dream home. Above is Sarah and Mark getting dropped off to St. John in the dingy. Our hotel left us a nice towel design and it started raining the dawe returned the boat.
