While I was still feeling comfortable at anchor in the North Sound the little voice in my head said “You are on a sailboat - go sail!” so I heeded the call and got the boat ready. After leaving the channel to the North Sound I saw what looked like half the Sunsail and Moorings boats head north to Anegada so I opted to steer elsewhere. I set off for Jost van Dyke in light winds and then started to think about where I really wanted to go. I had Trellis on my list, as I wanted to get Aragorn's sculpture of a diving pelican for my main cabin forward bulkhead, but didn't know if I wanted to do that today. In the end I thought I'd go to Diamond Cay again and then head ashore for some food at Foxy's Taboo. The trip was leisurely and I found the time and energy to do some splicing for my dinghy towline and when I finally arrived at my destination I was ready for a swim and some dinner. The swim was easy to arrange, but when I headed around the promontory from my anchorage to Foxy's Taboo the restaurant was strangely dark, with just a couple of lights turned on in the veranda. Oh well, I went back to the boat and made a makeshift dinner from my leftover and some Paul Newman's spaghetti sauce which, while not really tasty, was filling. So filling in fact, that I couldn't stay awake to watch the film “Avatar” to completion despite my being impressed with it.
