A good time was had by all
19 March 2017 | Antigua
Rays leeaping out of the water, dolphins swimming along side Mile High Dream and turtles galore. This is what greeted us when we arrived in Barbuda after a very salty sail. During the crossing I looked back over where we came and said to my self. " The dinghy davits look like they are twisted."
Dinghy davits are the metal super structure that holds your dinghy out of the water. With the strong winds and huge waves there was no way I was going to check it out at this time. When we got anchored in calm water, sure enough it was bent out off shape and the welds had broken. Crap! Another project and some more dollars needing to be spent.
Barbuda was beautiful. Long endless stretches off soft sandy beaches and turquoise waters.
The added addition is the frigate bird colony on the north end . We hired a guide to take us by power boat to see this national sanctuary. We not disappointed with the hundreds of Frigate birds soaring over head, the males puffing out there red ballon breasts while others tend to the baby chicks.
My family and I had a wonderful week. Time for my new crew to arrive and start heading back south.
