The Best Lobster I Ever HadJanet (again)
November 29, 2011, 8:00 pm, Anegada Island, BVI
We finally made it to Anegada. Mark and I were here eleven years ago and finally made it back. It is one of our favorite islands. It is a couple hour sail from the eastern most island in the BVI and it is surrounded by coral. You also cannot see the island from the other islands (its highest point is only 28 feet above sea level) so many people do not venture out to it. It is only 11 miles long and much of it is uninhabited. Mark wanted to return so he could have another spiny lobster which he believe is the best lobster he has ever had.
I Know It Is Here SomewhereJanet (finally she starts blogging)
November 28, 2011, 5:59 pm, Bitter End, Virgin Gorda BVI
We didn't make it to Anegada because we couldn't get ourselves moving this morning. We were puttering around on the boat and suddenly it was really too late to leave for Anegada. The island is surrounded by coral reef and getting there is tricky so we wanted to make sure we could get there in good sunlight. We shall try again some other day. Nothing went well today because our next choice was Musk Melon Bay on Guana Island. When we got there the ocean swells were too great for us to anchor there for the night. Then we went to the Baths in Virgin Gorda hoping to swim but the beach had a red flag up indicating the swells were too great for swimming. So, we ended up at the Bitter End in Virgin Gorda. Luckily, all of these islands are close together.

Here is a picture of At Last from the top of Marina Cay. She is the beautiful blue hulled boat behind the white behemoth of a catamaran that would not move out of the way for the picture. By the way, the word Cay, is pronounced "Key" when in the BVI.
Happy ThanksgivingCloudy and threats of thunder storms and rainbows

Just a quick note to wish everyone Happy Thanksgiving. We left Nanny Cay this morning after saying good bye to all the new friends we made. We arrived at Marina Cay this afternoon. Marina Cay is a very small island off the northeast side of Tortola. It is one of our favorite places in the world. We spent a few days here eleven years ago on our first learn to sail charter. There is not much on the island, a small restaurant, bar, library, and store. Very quite and relaxing.
