I'm starting to feel more "normal"... well, perhaps I should say more like my old self :) It's been 2 weeks now since we lost our rig and came to Christiansted. Sorry for not posting very much. I have a lot that I want to say and I promise to get to it soon. I've also been neglecting the charter blogs (yacht charters, barge charters) which is a shame, although we have been busy with new clients and a few bookings!
Here's a photo of where we initially anchored in Christiansted, St Croix.
We like being at the back of the pack. Also, most of the boats are on moorings which makes anchoring a bit difficult.
Saturday the wind shifted to the south (weird) so we had to move due to our new position in relation to the unoccupied boat next to us. They predict a WNW wind for Christmas which is very unusual.
Here we are at our new spot.
Close dinghy ride to the dock & good WiFi reception.
And, we are farther away from the seaplane as you can see below.
That boat without the mast in the above photo is not us. I assume he removed his mast for hurricane season, or perhaps was one of the boats damaged in Hurricane Omar last year.
The noise of the seaplane engines is much more tolerable in our new spot and has less of an eardrum-splitting quality. Maybe the cats won't run inside everytime one of them taxis.
Here's our view looking out towards the reef...
Pretty nice day for the first day of Winter.
