Weather; overcast, wind very gusty, waves n/a



So we sat here today on the mooring looking out at the beautiful beaches surrounding us doing absolutely nothing. I couldn't get motivated today at all, so I spent all day reading and playing card games. Gerry did get a little more motivated and cleaned some of the stainless steel on the deck and had a go at cleaning the Isin glass in the cockpit Ð it's going to need a second go!

The wind was really gusty and the water wasn't terribly inviting today so no swimming. All in all it was a very lazy day, I think you have to have them every now and again.

Late in the afternoon Gerry dinghied across to the mooring pay station and paid our fee for the 4 nights we will have spent here and on his return we hoisted the dinghy back onto the davits and stashed everything away, readying the boat for our departure tomorrow when we head across the bay to Sopers Hole in the British Virgin Islands.

We sat in the cockpit for the obligatory sundowners with camera at the ready just in case there was a glimmer of sunset Ð that was a waste of time as the cloud continued to completely hide the sun as it had all day so no sunset photo and certainly no green flash.

We ate on board, watched some Jack Taylor and went to bed having achieved nothing! Every time Gerry opened a hatch it began raining so the hatches had to be closed again Ð it became akin to a rain dance! We hope that tomorrow is a better day!
