I'd decided to try one more day of Jost van Dyke and either go scuba diving (not a good idea considering the rather unsettled water conditions) or finally walk to the top of the hill and enjoy the view across to Tortola and St. Thomas; the latter was going to be my task for the day. After applying SPF50 and stopping by at Corsair's (where they gave me some water as I'd left mine aboard the boat), I trekked up the hill which is both steeper than I thought and higher - not helped by my out-of-shape office-worker body. The hike was worth it indeed with pretty views on all side of the island and the good side effect that it has increased my appetite for dinner.
Upon return I rested a bit in the shade and managed to see the old Zanshin I depart the anchorage, but she later came back in to anchor and Tim, the new owner, came by to say hello and we talked about boats for bit I had a tasty dinner at Corsair's but upon finding my dinghy at the dock it had been pushed underneath somehow and was impossible to move; I ended up letting out most of the air in the chambers and had to carefully motor back with a flaccid dinghy and will have to pump up the chambers again before trying to get in.
