This place is what a sailors dreams are made of. Warm, clear water, nice blue sky, and the landscape is stunning! We arrived at Voyage Yachts in Sopers Hole on Tortola without a hitch at 12noon. Our catamaran is amazing. Almost new, she has a great layout and is very comfy for the 10 of us. My two sisters and their husbands, Mark and Mary, Bridget (my wife) as well as the captain and chef are on board. Our first stop was a lovely beach on Jost Van Dyke. It's so nice to have a captain to take care of the details. After many bay and delta trips, I can appreciate the work that goes into a sailing adventure. It great to kick back and have another Painkiller while the captain sets the hook. We hit the beach and the Soggy Dollar was our first stop. Famous for their libations, we got a round and immediately commenced a spirited game Jungle Bocce. Shortly thereafter we headed back to the boat for a lovely dinner of pecan encrusted salmon over angel hair pasta. The evening flew by and we finished with a jam session on the trampoline up front. With Dennis on the guitar, and my sis Cyn on the flute, we sang and listened under an almost full moon. A perfect evening! Today we will head to Trellis Bay and get situated for the famous full moon party there. Throw in some sailing and snorkeling and we are looking pretty. TTFN!
