Holidays In The BVIs

Guana Island, BVIs
18 27.9N 64 34.3W

One casualty of our change of plans, was the chance to catch up with Duncan, Pippa and the kids in Antigua over Easter, but as a compromise Duncan managed to fly out to join us in the BVIs on his way to Antigua.

We had a great week sailing round the BVIs, the weather was kind with blue skies and gentle winds, and the islands as gorgeous as ever - short sails in sheltered waters from great anchorage to great anchorage, the only possible complaint being the number of charter boats sharing the water with us, but even then there are still plenty of relatively quiet anchorages.

The days passed with rum cocktails, snorkeling and beach life, and the evenings with the devious dice game Perudo. Linda proved to be the champion, psychologically destroying Duncan and I over the week with her bluffing and strategy.

From here we are off to Puerto Rico to drop off the computer for repair and then on to the Bahamas and the USA for the end of June.
