Current Location: Maho Bay Mooring, St. John, USVI
Miles Traveled: 6
Weather: Mostly sunny, breezy (10-15), high-70s
Highlights: Dropped the mooring lines around 10:30 this morning, and motored over to Maho Bay, picking up a mooring there just before noon. This is our last full day in the Virgin Islands, and it seems fitting that our time here should end where it all began for us over 30 years ago. Back in the mid-80s, we booked a week-long scuba charter on the Cuan Law, which at the time was the largest trimaran in the world at 105 feet. We spent a week in the BVI's with friends from work, but before we started the charter, we booked a few days at Maho Bay campground, which at the time was an eco-friendly (and also budget-friendly) camping resort. We spent 3 idyllic days soaking in the sun, snorkeling in the bay, and falling in love with each other and also with St. John. The love has continued through the passage of time and in spite of all the changes, and we will be sorry to say goodbye, but the next phase of our journey starts tomorrow as we begin our trek down through the windward islands. We are excited, a bit apprehensive, but well-prepared, and can't wait to get started! Wish us fair winds and calm seas for tomorrow night!
