Ahh, to be at anchor again! After several days of cold AC nights and feeling cooped up because all of the window coverings are closed, I had a good night with fresh air and the gently rocking of the boat in the waves.
While drinking my breakfast coffees I caught up with this blog and realized that I hadn't been giving my camera much exercise at all. Depending upon how the day progresses, I will try to get a dive done or at least sail somewhere where I can do a dive the following day.
I noticed several dinghies heading towards what used to be an empty beach on Little Jost van Dyke and realized that there was a beach bar there, so in the mid-afternoon I dinghied across; as my anchorage position was very close to, but just around the bend from, the bar. I found a great little beach bar called the B-Line which had just opened in January. There was a crowd there already, mainly 12 people from a large charter Moorings catamaran, and although I only wanted to take a couple of pictures and perhaps have one drink for form's sake I stayed rather a bit longer. The bar has a little game, if you throw your beer bottle cap into a jar then the drink is on the house, and I was lucky enough to sink the 3-pointer on my first beer, so I had to have a second beer in order to actually end up paying for my stay, and that second turned into a third and you can guess the rest...
After the bar visit I didn't get any of my planned chores done and lazed around the cockpit until sunset, when I made a BBQ dinner and watched the original James Bond “Thunderball̵ movie on the computer before looking at the wonderful stars this clear and almost windless night before heading off to sleep.
