DAY 88 - March 25th 2014 - St. Barts -
I am always excited about heading toward a new island, one that I have not seen before and to mark it off my bucket list. As we approach I notice that St. Barts is an unusually pretty island with mountains, lots of bays, a rocky shore line that reminds me of Canada and small rock islands surround the main island and entrance to Gustavia. For this three hour passage the wind was on our nose and I commented that it will be fun when we head back next week with the wind behind us for a change. The day was so clear we could see for miles towards Barbuda, St. Kits, Nevis, Antigua and Saba. We motored around a few islands which were National Parks before heading into Gustavia. The reason why we are here is to watch the Bucket Race, (no pun meant earlier) which is a regatta for yachts over 100ft. Well, we are not disappointed, we anchor and go ashore to check in and to ogle the fantastic boats at the dock, about 8 huge yachts are here stern in so we can get quite a good look. There are loads more at anchor outside the bay, we did not stay too long after spending $25.00 on two drinks we decide to head home.
DAY 89 - March 26th 2014 - St. Barts
A very rolly night we had, so we went ashore early to get some stable ground for a while, picked up a new sim card for the internet, some lovely Baguette's and Croissant's and a few groceries. On our way back we saw that Kathrian had arrived and stopped by to chat for a few minutes. Back on board I got caught up on my blog and found that our hot spot was not working so headed out again to try and get it sorted out. Got the hot spot fixed and met up with D & J at their favourite Pizza place, they take us to all these amazing places that we may not have found on our own. Later we walked the million dollar dock and looked at all the amazing yachts. Back to the boat for another bumpy night and more Game of Thrones episodes but ended up with watching a movie on Netflix, yeh the hot spot is great and unlimited internet.
