Time to leave

This afternoon we take Andiamo around to the boat yard for haul out tomorrow. Weather has been hot and humid and the Sahara dust has been in the air. Amazing that this stuff comes over the ocean from Africa. We leave for Minnesota next week. It was a great sailing season. We visited a couple of new spots and met some new friends. This will be our last post until next fall. Have a great summer.

Last day sailing

Today was our last day sailing. We did 75 days this season--15 more than last year. For our final day out, we went to Waterlemon Cay for a nice snorkel and sail with our friends Gail and Bert. We had a wonderful lunch and found out that the plant in our previous post was a Century Plant--which blooms once just before it dies. It lives between 10 and 30 years so really don't know why it is called a Century Plant.

During our snorkel, we saw a barracuda, nurse shark, a lobster and an octopus. Then we sailed back to St Thomas and finished with a drink at the Yacht Club.

Now we start to put up the boat and will haul her out next week. Scheduled to be back in the water on November 3rd.

Back to St Thomas

Motored back to St Thomas under full sun and no wind. Hopefully, we can go out one more time before we put her up for the season

With me in the pic, you can see how tall this is

Checkout of BVI

The sun was up today with no chance of rain. Kim went snorkeling and then we went to Sopers Hole to checkout of the BVI and have lunch. Remind us not to go to the Fish & Lime again. Pretty marginal food but nice view. After lunch we motored to Waterlemon Cay on St John and snorkeled a bit. We then went on a hike to check out a plant we saw on the island. About 25 foot flowering stalk growing out of a plant that looks like an aloe-type plant. Covered with yellow-orange flowers on a large stalk. Anyone know what this is??

Tomorrow is our last day as we head to st Thomas. It may be our last day of the season as the weather next week is marginal. We will see

Nice sunset
