|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
|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!
|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.
