THINGS CHANGE April 7, 2014

Culebra has some of the better snorkeling area there are in these parts. I had scoped out some of the locations on the day we arrived. All prepped and ready to go in the morning. Then we are listening to the weather guru always thinking we have to be in St Thomas by Tuesday. Well he says that the trade winds would build during the day to the high 20’s and last till Tuesday. The mate and I look at each other and start the scramble to head the 25 miles to St Thomas. So much for my nice day snorkeling.

Since Thursday afternoon we have been in the middle of St Thomas harbor with about 50 other cruisers. It is a pretty harbor, very hilly with the city surrounding it. Cruise ships come in about every other day and dumps about 3000 people into town for the day. A good day to hide and do boat projects.

Today is laundry day and 2 cruise ships just got in. The laundry is straight across the path of the passengers. Fun.

Tomorrow our son arrives and we will head to the east end of the island and then on to St John’s Wednesday. Thursday we will head to the BVI’s and spend several days there before heading back to St Thomas. Really looking forward to some good snorkeling and fishing.

Should be a good week. Seas should be down and wind calming during the week.
