In the Virgins!
20 May 2012 | Vieques, PR
Well, it was worth the bash to weather... This is Green Beach... with OUR Palm tree... Later a few other people showed up from shore. Otherwise this has been like some kind of perfect movie set.
Well, today we had a taste of why they call this the "thorny path"... Even though we followed the instructions of Bruce Van Zant... Well not really... He would have suggested waiting for the Tradwinds to be reduced before leaving Puerto Patillas. We were so tired of the surge that was rolling us... We were willing to put up with some windward bashing to get out of there.
at first we motor-sailed in two big tacks to make the nine miles to the SE corner of Puerto Rico... Then we were able to sail in two more big tacks to "green beach" on the nw corner of Vieques. We share the anchorage with one other boat... We haven't met them yet... As food and nap were the first order of business!
We haven't had Internet, except through our iPad, and we can't figure out how to post photos from the iPad. Any ideas?
