23 March 2007 | Anagada and Marina Cay
Hideko and I had never fully explored Anagada. It is a lovely island and out of the way, even for the British Virgin Islands. We decided to rent a car and see everything we could while our parents were with us. One of the great things about renting cars in the islands is that Roq can come. Folks just don't get uptight out here (well the tourists do I guess).
We drove through the settlement, checked out the flamingos and stopped by all of the great beaches. We had lunch at Flash of Beauty on Loblolly beach and spent some time looking around the Big Bamboo. We also visited Cow Wreck Beach, my personal favorite (Roq's too I think).
My parents were flying out tomorrow and by the time we got the car back (it was actually a pick up truck with bench seats in the back) it was four in the afternoon. A bit late but we decided to sail down to Trellis Bay so that we would not have to get up too early.
We had a nice trip down to the Bay but it was packed. We drove around the outside a little but I didn't want to even go in there it was so crowded. Plan B. We motored across the way to Marina Cay.
At this point it was just after sunset and a little late to find a mooring this time of year. Rather than bother looking we just anchored in the back of the mooring field. It was a nice anchorage and we all had a nice nights sleep.
