Play time!

We leave Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, and head upwind (motoring) to
Christmas Cove at Great St. James Island
We pick up a mooring ball, snorkel, and end the day with
 a Troubadour style happy hour of music by Captain Chris

A beautiful sunset ends a perfect day


We scuba dive Cow & Calf reef, and the next day,
we head for Little Lameshur Bay, St. John, ...
  
where I meet ... Tarzan?

Much of St. John is a National Park, including the Lameshur Bays
where  the water is crystal clear, and deer and goats
share the beach with sunbathers & snorkelers
We stay two nights at Little Lameshur Bay, where eagle rays swim around
our boat; and we scuba Clover Leaf reef making two
 (unsuccessful) attempts  to snare lobster,
but it's all good, we are having so much fun! 
 
After two nights we journey to Coral Bay,
but find the anchorage a little too crowded.
 
We go across the bay to the hurricane holes where the water is calm
and a pretty blue but the mooring balls are for day use only
and we want to stay a few nights.

So we go back to Coral Bay and find a small anchorage on the south end
 called Johnson Bay, where you can see Norman Island, BVI, in the distance.
We venture in to Coral Bay and tie up at the wobbly dinghy dock.
 
The goats mow the soccer field next to the school. It's slow and relaxing here,
if you want hustle & bustle you won't like it.
We walk along the road by the shore and find Lily's Market
where we quench our thirst
and we share a $12 cheese burger & fries at Aqua Bistro.
We venture back to the dinghy, but first stop at the popular
Skinny Legs bar & restaurant
We hope to come back to Coral Bay with some of our guests next month.
