The winds are just beginning to ease, however it takes a few days for the seas to lose their strength from the winds… so we are not going to make it to St.Martin with Rob. He has now booked a flight from Tortola to St.Martin to make his connecting flights home. We are heading back to our ‘airport parking lot’ tomorrow. Glen and I are trying to arrange for an experienced captain/crew person to come with us early in the week when the weather window is open as we are still feeling a little uncertain (especially after hearing some ugly stories of the crossing lately) to make the passage on our own.We have filled our week here and it was still a good get away for Rob. We rented a car for a day and toured some of the island highlights – the “baths” (see photos). We also had to make a few immigration stops as all of our visas were expiring since we had planned on being gone already. Another afternoon was spent hiking to the top of the island for some incredible views. And of course I had time for laundry, cleaning and odd jobs on the boat….
Here are some photos of our lovely island hideaway – Virgin Gorda.
