Dolphins in the VI’s!

Wednesday Brenda & Derek zipped over to go dive with OJ, so Jim and I took a hike over to some ruins and the Yawzi trail which runs out to a very picturesque peninsula…a little ironic, as the peninsula is named for people who were isolated here with a tropical disease called Yaw….I should probably stop reading the guides.

We enjoyed a great dinner of seared Ahi Tuna with pearl couscous courtesy of Brenda….(I do love hanging out with all these charter boat people) and another very fun and laughter filled night.

They had predicted thunderstorms here (which is a rarity for us, as we have not seen thunder and lightening since Grenada, and that the outer bands of a hurricane) and they were not wrong. Starting some time in the night it rained, and rained, and rained, and rained…and rumbled and rained. So much so that we had to drop the dingy in order to pump out all the water that collected in it.

We (us and OJ) are planning to run around the island today to WaterLemon Key to spend a few nights. Since Derek and Brenda took their big dingy over, and the forecast and skies are still threatening OJ towed them around to Cruz Bay, before casting them off for the short run into Cruz, and then back to St. Thomas. On the way however we were greeted by a small pod of Dolphins who romped and played with us under our bows for a full minute before veering off. Something we haven’t seen since we were down island, and an experience to NEVER tire of!

When we got here Denise and I got back to re-KDengeenering the side panel we finished a few days ago. Turns out instead of shedding the rain, it catches it and funnels it all inside. Note to self, always put the vinyl on the OUTSIDE! That done we enjoyed another great dinner then off to bed…hopefully the storms have blown themselves out!

Turns out they had, and we spent a dry and peaceful night, before waking to a beautiful and clear Caribbean day.
