Debbie and I have been sailing for the past month from Grenada to San Juan Puerto Rico. We are sorry for not being able to update our blog. There has been little or no quality internet to be able to upload pictures and a blog.
We left Grenada after saying goodbye to Laura and started our island travels north. WOW!! what fantastic warm water anchorages, islands and sailing we have experienced during the past month. Pictures can't really tell the whole story but we will attach a few so that you get the idea.

One of our favourites spots are the British Virgin Islands. We spent a week enjoying the shallow warm water. The darker areas are coral reefs and they are just like a very fancy aquarium with amazing varieties of coral and brightly coloured fish. The Baths and pristine beaches to the north there were highlights for us. (Thanks Craig) Lots of snorkelling, swimming and some hiking to the top of a hill where you can take a dip in a pool - very nice because you are a little warm when you get there!

Next stop was Culebra. It is an island and part of Puerto Rico. We enjoyed the fantastic beaches and the warm relaxing sun. Here we met our friends the Silverstein family on a sister boat "Field Trip". It was a too short of a visit but so good to see them.

We will set sail on Thursday for the Bahamas and then onto Florida. We can't guarantee quality wifi but we will try and update our blog soon. Our plan is to spend this summer sailing the east coast of the USA and then returning to the Caribbean next winter.
