Touring Provo

25 April 2012 | Provo, TCI
Lisa-cloudy and warm and windy
The weather was predicted to be pretty windy and they were right. The few boats in the anchorage are just hanging out til Friday when the winds will be back down. We will be leaving Friday too for a 180 nm passage to Long Island. We'll leave in the morning and arrive sometime the next day.
Tuesday was a boat day because we couldn't get a car until Wednesday. There is not a lot to "see" on Provo as the main attractions are sun, sand, diving, fishing, snorkeling, etc. It is a limestone island that just pushed up outta the sea. It's flat and scrubby with nice long beaches. We noticed that the buildings all look so nice and colorful. We didn't see a lot of the rundown area like we see down island. It is very much a tourist island. We visited some of the shopping area, ogeled the huge resorts, checked out other marinas and stopped at The Hole. It's a big sink hole - neat. I wanted to tour the Conch Farm but the rest of the crew was not really interested. I am such a tourist at heart!! Anyway, we finally stopped for a beverage at Da Conch Shack. It is supposed to be "famous". We had the conch fritters - yum. Dale took a turn at blowing a king conch. We ended up having dinner at the place next door called Horse Eyed Jacks. Perfect choice cuz they had a spot out of the wind!! Good food too and not too pricey - stuff is pricey here. We paid $9.00 for a loaf of good, hardy bread - eeeks. Last stop was for groceries - I just closed my eyes and signed the charge slip!!
Tomorrow we will be hanging on the boat doing some school and getting ready for the overnighter.

The pic is of the sink hole but I could only get about a fourth of it in a picture.

These were taken when we bought her in 2006. The biggest interior change was removing the top bunk in the walkthrough (Wyatt's room) and making it a storage area. Yes - this boat has a TUB!
