Yesterday was a great day! OJ got back to Christmas Cove about 10am, and so we jumped back aboard and helped them finish a few projects, and then hauled the sewing machine over so Denise could make a deck bag for soap and lotion with some of the material she bought. It looks GREAT!

It was Haircut time for us, and when we were all done with chores Jim dropped us off near the point by current cut to go visit the fishes. This is a nice snorkel spot with beautiful ledges. There was at least one wreck here and there was debris visible in many places. With a little super glue, Denise observed, we could build ourselves a boat! Frank dove down to peek under a sheet of metal, and quickly snatched his hand back when he saw the lion fish that had taken up residence underneath. It swam out, and extended all its fins, then when Denise and Frank dove down for a closer look it turned toward them, and made itself look even bigger. This guy wasn’t intimidated by us AT ALL. There was also a good size puffer down there, just hanging with the lion fish…an unlikely pair. We had dinner aboard OJ, marinated grilled steak and grilled potatoes – Yum!

Christmas Cove is exceptionally crowded as the Rolex Regatta is going of starting tomorrow, and we are about 1.5 miles from the St. Thomas Yacht Club, who hosts the regatta. There are boats anchored all over, and rafted together. In several cases, a smaller, sleek race boat is rafted to a larger cruising or charter boat, which acts as the mother ship. There were even 4 boats rafted up that were anchored and had and additional stern line tied to the shore. The boats just kept coming and coming. All pretty exciting, however we are glad to be heading out tomorrow, before things get really crazy.

Today, it is back to work. We headed out early and were on the docks in Crown Bay by 9:15 and our cleaning and organizing begins. But just because we can, late this afternoon we shower up and hop the safari bus over to Yacht Haven Grande where we meet Frank and Denise for $5.00 tacos…after all, all work and no play, would be …well, Work. Backseaters …. We’re getting ready for you!
