As befits a day where the whole year is still ahead, I took it easy. While I woke up early, I didn't really get much accomplished and by 11am I was certain that I'd stay here for the day since the winds and waves were still high. So once again I attacked the bilges to get the last remnants of diesel out. When the boat behind me left I decided to let out a bit more chain (only about 20 feet or so) but then realized that I might be infringing upon the anchor space of another boat behind me, so I dinghied over to explain what I'd done. The crew, Rob and Lauren, were aboard Arita and invited me aboard. Before I knew it, I was wolfing down a fresh and tasty BLT and we were planning on exchanging software and movies and half the afternoon had gone by.

Biras Creek Looking from my anchorage off Prickly Pear in the North Sound of Virgin Gorda in the BVI I can see not only a number of moored yachts but Biras Creek in the background.
