Culebrita

05 February 2014 | Spanish Virgin Islands
DAY 39 – February 4th 2014 – Culebrita – Spanish Virgin Islands
A quick motor round the corner takes us to Culebrita, what a pretty island, uninhabited other than goats and I will tell you about them tomorrow. Only two mooring balls with a shallow bay full of coral and only our two boats there. Today we decided to hike to the top of the hill and check out the lighthouse, we had passed this island quite a few times now and happy to be here at last. The view was great and we all had Happy Hour on Moma Cal
DAY 40 – February 5th 2014 – Culebrita – Spanish Virgin Islands
Culebrita has three big sandy beaches, ours which is very calm, another on the East Coast which is rough with big surf and a beach that is not anchorable. The third beach is heavenly, white sand like powder and a bit of surf, you can take a ball or anchor here but it is quite rolly. We hiked over the island to this beach and then along the shore to the bubbly pools where we had our lunch and a dip. On the way back we saw some concrete like foundations, I went over to inspect and found a shallow well about 10 feet deep and then saw three goats in the bottom. Well I could not leave them and had to rescue them. One had a vine tied around it, so I grabbed it to try and lift him or her out. Unfortunately the vine was also entwined through a branch which Doug pulled out and then we were able to lift her out. I grabbed the horns and Doug unwound the vine and off she went bleeting away. Now the other two, Doug and another Guy jumped into the well and caught the larger one and threw it up and out. Then Doug grabbed the baby who just gave up the struggle and he put him up on the wall. They all ran off making such a row but at least they were safe. We felt we had done a good job for the day and went back for cocktails on Kathrian.
