Back from the Caribbean...

Deborah and I returned a couple of days ago from three weeks of cruising in the Caribbean. To say the least, it was great fun. We love Road Town and Tortola, and got to see friends we made last April at the Fort Burt Hotel and to make some new ones. Our boat in from Conch Charters had a lot to be desired, but we managed it for a week.

A big highlight in the BVIs was the Encinal Yacht Club's ad hoc end-of-the-year Caribbean cruise. The Princess and I met the Waterloos at Marina Cay on the 19th and the Shaffers on the 20th. Then we sailed up to the Bitter End and hooked up with the Pimentels. They all got on boats on the 21st, and we sailed back down to Cooper Island to meet them that afternoon and declare it a valid cruise for the club. Had to be, what with the 2006 cruise captains, the commodore, the rear commodore, and a club director present!

The whole story of the BVI leg of the cruise is posted now on the cruising log, and photos are linked to the log. Our log for the second leg of our trip to St Martin and Anguilla will be posted next week.
