Current Location: Culebra Harbor Anchorage, Culebra, Puerto Rico
Miles Traveled: 3
Weather: Mostly sunny, occasional showers, breezy, low-80s
Highlights: We've had a very quiet, laid-back couple of days since our last update. We stayed another day at the Culebrita anchorage, then moved around the point to Almodovar Bay on Culebra, and stayed there a few days. Wind has been blowing hard all week (15-20 knots), and waves have been 5-6 outside, but we've enjoyed very calm seas at the anchorages. Days have been filled with snorkeling, looking for lobster (no luck), reading, and relaxing, with delicious meals, good conversations, and competitive (and so far not bloody) games of dominoes and cards. We had both anchorages pretty much to ourselves, so we've very much enjoyed the peace and quiet. Finally decided to re-join civilization yesterday morning, and motored into Culebra harbor. Amy, Steve, and Karen hiked (and thumbed) over to Flamenco Beach to see the "third best beach in the world" (according to TripAdvisor), while Terry stayed on board and caught up on some engine maintenance. Went to dinner at the Dinghy Dock, then walked over to the local store for some ice cream before returning to the boat for a couple games of cards. This is our last night in the Spanish Virgin Islands - winds and waves are settling down tomorrow, so we'll head over to St. Johns for the rest of Karen and Steve's vacation.
