Caribbean Adventures Part TWO!

Oh my, my!  So. Much. Fun!  Looking back it is hard to put into words the fun that was had aboard Amoray with Reid & Kath’s last visit.  The day we laughed so hard we cried and our cheeks ached, or when we sang ourselves silly, Kathy tackling the bubbly pool, Reid falling out of the dinghy….where to begin?  I will only try to encapsulate some of the great memories in a photo journal of a few poignant comments.

After a lengthy (and impatient) wait, and a host of “Griswold-like” plane stories, Reid, Kathy and their luggage arrived safely at 10:30pm.  A taxi to the dinghy dock, school’s out, let the party start.  Not sure when Glen called it quits but at 3am the rest of us decided it was time to turn in.

An ugly beat to the lovely Maho Bay the first day where we excitedly met up with Kool Kat and Slow Waltz….and funny enough we hadn’t seen them since the day after Reid  Kathy left Antigua at New Year’s.  So the reunion involved plenty of stories and laughter.

Tortola for a delicious breakfast and check in at customs and then off to Norman Island.  Of course we were able to get a snorkel at the Caves and Reid & I dove the Indians the next morning.  This was a monumental event for me as it was the FIRST time we were able to dive right off the back of Amoray.  Fantastic sea life and blissful to swim back and surface at the boat!   Antics at Willy T’s were a must for happy hour, followed by Reid’s expensive antics getting back aboard.

Two days in the North Sound were action packed and full of fun.  We swam, hiked, “happy-houred” and enjoyed the beautiful surrounds.

Arundel Rum tasting!

 

A morning sail before breakfast to Jost Van Dyke and a foray to the Bubbly Pool before heading to check out at Great Harbor and then on to Caneel Bay.  This was certainly a busy day.   We checked in, then walked about town and met up with Notre Vie, Scherzo and Banyan for a happy hour stop before dinner.

If this sounds like enough fun for you….come join us! Amoray has not found new owners yet, so we are starting our journey south to Grenada at the beginning of May, after a Rob’s visit.
