Highlights: Mark and Terry went snorkeling first thing this morning around the small island in Christmas Cove. Saw a couple of sand rays, one eagle ray, and a nasty-looking barracuda, but not many fish, and coral was mostly dead. Breakfast back on the boat, then dropped the mooring ball around 10AM and motor-sailed over to Buck Island to find some turtles. Grabbed a mooring ball around 11, then Mark and Diana went snorkeling while the rest of us had some lunch and relaxed. Saw lots of turtles, a couple of rays, and quite a few day-charters in and out of the mooring field. We hung around until about 2:30, then headed over to Crown Bay Marina on St. Thomas, last stop for the Kingsley clan. Docked and secured by 3:30, relaxed on the boat for a bit, then headed over to the local pub (Tickles) for drinks, dinner, and to watch some of the NCAA basketball games. Back to the boat around 7PM to relax, reminisce, and celebrate a wonderful week together in the Virgin Islands.
