January 26, 2017 - Antigua

26 January 2017

We spent over a month in Barbuda. Did lots of hiking including the full length of the east coast from Spanish Point to Two Foot Bay, about 6 hours one-way. Took a taxi back….
Not a lot to report, we had great weather and it was even “cool” a few nights where the cabin got down to 77F. Laurie had a sweater on at night. The last couple of days spent in Barbuda the wind was non-existent so we took the opportunity to go out to Palaster Reef, about a mile off the south coast. The water was like glass and we might have been in glass bottom boat. Lots of different reefs are included in the area which is about 2 miles square, give or take. We did get a school of “fairly large” (2 feet) Barracuda come for a visit and circle / follow us for a bit. Laurie did not go for a swim….
Anyhow, we are back in Antigua and have met up with Steve and his dog Spinnaker. We are getting ready to head into the marina in a couple of days and will be heading to Thunder Bay for a bit. Nice to see snow again; not.
Upon our return we will be heading for St. Martin to have a rigging check done, provision, buy new bottom paint (for later – it is cheaper there) and will then make our way to Panama.
In the process of uploading NEW photos into the “Cruising 2016” album as well as a new Cruising 2017 album. They should be uploaded by the time you read this.
