Roque Island

14 July 2011
Roque Island had been owned by the same family since the 1800's. It is largely undeveloped and has just a few homesteads which are hidden from the cruiser's view. Some farming is done and there is much effort to preserve the unique ecosystem that exists here.
This is truly a special place. After a quiet calm night, with only the eerie call of the loons breaking the silence, we awoke to sparkling sunshine and a brisk breeze. Thankfully our choice of anchorage gave us good protection from the winds. We ate breakfast in the cockpit watching the lobstermen checking their traps, after doing this the boats left the harbor and we were alone again with just one other sailboat at the other end of the beach. We went for a lovely walk ashore and spent the day pottering about and relaxing - perfect. We had a lovely dinner, then watched the sun set and the full moon rise over the harbor - just amazing and makes you feel good to be alive.
We will pull ourselves away from here tomorrow as there should be good winds to sail back West.
