So far our trip has been great. The first day we sailed 120 miles. Then the wind died on us, so we began to motor. We motored all day yesterday and now we are motor sailing along at 6 knots. The seas have been calm along with the weather. We are currently passing Dominican Republic. The fishing rods are out. Wish us luck on catching a fish!

Scott & Tracy joined us January 8 for nine days.  Paul picked them up at 7:00 pm in the dinghy in Cruz Bay, St. John and brought them to Caneel Bay where Moonshadow was.  The next morning we headed to Waterlemon Cay.  We did some great snorkling and went for a hike on the Jonny Horn Trail.  Our friends on Sing Dog Sailing, Stephen & Kelly, were also there.  It was Paul's birthday today, however it was also Kelly's birthday as well.  So, we went over to there catameran and had cocktails.  Later we headed back to Moonshadow for dinner and birthday celebration.

Our friends Gordon and Kelly came in for the holidays.   They arrived on Christmas day around 5:30 pm.  We had them meet us at Nanny Cay.  That evening we joined three other boats for dinner at Peg Legs for Christmas dinner.  The next morning we headed out and sailed to The Bight home of the Willy T, which is a floating pirate ship bar.  We snorkled for a while and had fun watching the charter boats try to pick up moorings.  Afterwards, we headed up to the Willy T for happy hour.  It was great drinks and fun dancing.  Then we went back to the boat for dinner.

For the last couple of weeks Paul and I have been enjoying the BVI and USVI.  We spent two weeks in St. John.  We did lots of snorkling, paddle boarding, and some hiking.  Mainly we have just been relaxing.  Now we are in Nanny Cay for one more day.  We having been cleaning, provisioning, and doing laundry.  Our friends Gordon & Kelly are coming in Christmas day and staying with us until New Years day.   More fun to come!

The Saturday after Thanksgiving, Nanny Cay hosted the Movember Party.  The party is to raise money for mens prostate cancer.  So, men grow mustaches for the month of November and get judged at the party for the winner.  Since Paul won the Mr. Movember for Caribbean 1500, he was asked to be a judge and I was asked to walk the men to the judges.  The party theme was pirate & wenches, so we got our customs out and had a great time.
