03/09/2012, Great Camanoe Island, BVI
Next day on to Great Camanoe Island ... tugging into a quiet peaceful bay called Lee Bay ...sitting like a hidden secret - we were only 3 boats (a French and a Canadian yacht) there for the night ... nice clear water for swimming and snorkelling. It almost feel like a private location waiting just for us!!!
Snorkelling?...Hmmm - Captain J only found his lure and 3 dragon fish there(they are dangerous and destroy all the reef and fish in their area! Wish we could kill them there and then...?!) ... not much wild life under the brilliant crystal blues ...except at night we spot a lot of these enormous meter to meter and a half bonefish around the blue underwater lights of the boat ... we know they don't like lures or bread or old viennas ... we will keep trying to find out what they actually do like! So far - we haven't caught no fish ... I mean ... what-so-ever! ...
03/09/2012, Cane Garden Bay - Tortola, BVI
Cane Garden Bay is a relatively quiet dwelling with a few low key restaurants but on enormous white beach that stretches for a mile long all with deck chairs and umbrellas - we are still wondering who and how they will feed that amount of people if they think to fill those chairs!
The Captain had a interesting time dodging the feeding pelicans around the dingy dock ... they come down form 8 meters high ... diving like bombs around you just to pop out like a cork with a fish or two in this bag... I mean mouth!
This was out cheap night out - having a fabulous BBQ steak on our boat with the most amazing little town as backdrop!
We will have to go back to this lovely bay ... just absolutely special!! Cannot wait!
03/09/2012, Jost van Dyke Island, BVI
The god of winds lead us to the next Island ... crossing over to Jost van Dyke Island ... where Foxy's live! (one of the most famous pubs and restaurant of the BVI is!) A spectacular little laid-back town hugging a lovely half-moon beach ... with friendly Rastafarians managing most of the shops and eateries.... with only 150-200 inhabitants ... it is amazing to see that it is offering restaurant seatings for far more than double that at any given night!
We had a great BBQ dinner and a live Reggae band for entertainment ...meeting more friendly Americans around a few Rum Punches! The BBQ Chicken and the BBQ Baby Back Ribs and Mahi Mahi filet with a range of veggies, salads and fruit was to die for! At $29 a head - we thought it was great entertainment .... !!!
The funniest saying of the night was from the girl that gave us the food tickets: " Remember - only one time at the line" ... meaning - you can only go once ...so dish up as much as you hope to eat the first time round... no seconds! Ha ha ... it was a great way of putting it!
We got back aboard at a decent time after a few moments on the dance floor ...to be ready to move as early as possible back to Tortola to Cane Garden Bay. Should make for nice sailing!
