December 20th to 28th
A day later than expected, but we now have the Solar Panels on board the boat. Installation will have to be after the holidays. We Left Crown Bay Marina and returned to Caneel Bay, St John to spend Christmas looking at something other than a ship yard 🙂
After several rainy days friends on another boat reported seeing a strange orange ball in the sky. We saw it also and local fisherman confirmed it was the sun. 🙂 Christmas day was beautiful, sunshine and blue skies. It was a pleasure to find our friends Steve&Candy from s/v Tonic anchored in Caneel Bay. We spent time with them on the beach and happy hour on their boat.
It is not easy for us to be away from our families during the Holidays, we miss them a lot. We are fortunate to have phone and wifi service in the islands and were able to speak with them and wish them all a Merry Christmas.
The day after Christmas we motored into the wind to Jost Van Dyke, to secure a mooring ball in Great Harbor. We arrived early as there are approximately 30 mooring balls and past events have seen as many as 500 boats arrive for Old Years Night. Our friends Ceasar and Mary are scheduled to arrive tomorrow. They will be spending New Years with us here at Foxy’s. It will be great having friends on board. Let the party begin!!
