09 February 2018 | Little Harbor Jost Van Dyke
Sally the ride she be bumpy
The winds had not abated, nor had the seas quieted down. To get to Anegada you have to go out into the open Atlantic waters. With the North swell we were getting along with the winds the trip up the channel and over was not going to be comfortable. After a morning con fab the choice was made to head to Jost Van Dyke to Little Harbor. The trip from Norman to Jost got quite boisterous as we crossed through the narrow channel by West End, Tortola. The weather lived up to its forecast and we got caught in a squall. I was impressed by how well the boat and her crew handled the weather. It was nasty for a bit but passed quickly and we made it to Little Harbor by mid-afternoon. Scott and Janet were on the bow to pick up the mooring and we were soon settled. Janet called Abe’s to make dinner reservations for Lobster, the specialty of the house, with chicken for Scott the non seafood eater. It was evident that the harbor had been hard hit by the hurricanes, most of the houses were either missing altogether or without roofs. Sydney’s Peace and Love was destroyed in the storm as was Harrisons. Abe had a small patio open for business and was working on rebuilding the restaurant. Two other charter cats came in after us and picked up moorings. We met those folks ashore when we went in for out dinner but just briefly.
Dinner was amazing, we watched them pull our lobsters our of the pen, can’t get any fresher than that. They were delish and huge, lots of leftovers for Anegada Fritatta later in the week. While we were waiting for our meal Paul struck up a conversation with the gentleman who was doing the work on Abe’s building. He had come up from Grenada to do the work. And work he did, there is not much in the way of power tools or equipment in the islands at this time. After stuffing our faces with food we headed back to the boat to spend a quiet evening.

The picture is of the hillside in Little Harbor. Note that the vegetation is still brown from where the hurricanes decimated it. If you look closely you will see that some of the houses are missing their roofs.
