The Girl at the WheelBill
07/01/2012, Francis Drake Channel
You may think these photos of her at the wheel are posed... they are not. She has been very excited to take the wheel... and seems to have recently started to understand it. The attention span isn't there for much more than a minute at the helm. In this case she took the helm so I could run up on deck to put a reef in the main. I have just returned to trim the sail. For more see video below!

After our post office visit we wandered into the Michael Banzhaf Studio which was near the Sun Dog Cafe...

One reason (other than the generally greatness and beauty) for hanging out in St John was to wait for our new WiFi antenna. For those of you who follow our blog, you will have noticed that we haven't been posting regularly for weeks. Thanks to Towndock.net we have had this NanoStation wifi antenna which allows us to pick up wifi sites on shore.... and this allows us to blog, check weather, email and surf the internet from the comfort of our boat.

Isobel was getting impatient waiting for us to load ourselves into the dingy so she was perched near the top of the ladder reminding us that she was waiting, waiting, waiting...
Go or No Go.... No GOBill

After a great morning at the Baths including snorkeling and bouldering we had a late start to the north end of Virgin Gorda. The plan was to sail up and anchor off Necker Island to take a nap and organize the boat... Well, we arrived at Necker Island around 4:30 pm which was when we should have been sailing to St Martin... the boat was not in shape and we had not napped (except Isobel!).
An early visit to the famous BathsBill
06/30/2012, The Baths, Virgin GOrda, BVIs
after spending a rolly night at Cooper Island jammed in amongst the partying Charter boats, we left early to be at the Baths on the West end of Virgin Gorda. We went in early to have great snorkel, a wonderful walk through the caves, pools and caverns of the jumble of Granite rocks that the Baths are so famous for. There were four boats when we arrived at 0915. When we returned to the boat at noon, eatery mooring was full maybe 30 boats and the beach, rocks and pools were crawling with people. The early start was worth it!

Sunset in Francis Bay06/26/2012, Francis Bay, st John, USVI
What a sunset.
The guys get reorganized and put to bed.
Isobel is a great help hanging the laundry...but she gets a little too excited about taking it down. She runs back and forth bringing items back to the cockpit that are not quite done baking yet!
