Current Location: Cane Garden Bay Mooring, Tortola, BVI
Miles Traveled: 5
Weather: Partly sunny, very windy (15-30), occasional showers, low-80s
Highlights: Went into shore after breakfast this morning and hiked the Johnny Horn trail up the hill overlooking the bay to stretch our legs, enjoy the views, and explore the ruins. Showers were coming in, so didn't spend too much time out, but Jenn and Amy did get some beach combing in before the showers arrived. Dropped the mooring ball around 10:30 and motored across the Francis Driake Channel in heavy seas (5-6 foot waves) to Soper's Hole to check into the BVIs. After lots of forms and a lighter wallet ($78USD), we were legal visitors, so we enjoyed a quick lunch, then motored around the SW point of Tortola and up the west shore to Cane Garden Bay, grabbing a mooring around 2PM. Read and napped rest of afternoon, then took the dinghy into the dock and enjoyed burgers and painkillers at Quitos while watching the sun go down. Back to the boat around 8PM for reading and an early bedtime.
