Thursday we went to a marine park but were not thrilled with it, and then made our way to Meads Bay to find the infamous "Blanchards" restaurant beach bar. had a thrilling ride in the dingy with surf on the beach, jenna was the star, a good lunch at Blanchards, a fun swim at the oceans edge and then pushed the dingy through the surf, kirk and andrew got in and Jenna, Kelly and I swam back to the boat. My the ocean had quite a current and i was fully clothed in my sun protection so i was the last back to the boat. Was a lovely anchorage so we hung out there for a while (i took a nap). Anguilla only lets you anchor in two places and Road Bay was the closest so back again.
Friday we came back to Marigot cleared back into St Martin and went up to Grand Case. we went out to dinner and it was way way toooooo much money. will not make that mistake again.
Kirk has become quite adept at finding the french bakeries no matter what anchorage in St Martin. There was a good deal of french pastry consumed and mass quantities of baguettes consumed.
Saturday was a busy day with laundry, kel and gang leaving, karen and andy arriving. we are back in marina as big winds and seas are supposed to arrive. is much easier to get off at a dock with all your luggage than it is to dingy in with high seas.
Sunday we did provisions and headed back to Grand Case. big swells and big wind chop. saw 28 knots on the way here. having fun with karen and andy.

We are waiting for a weather window to go to st Martin to meet Kel, Andrew and Jenna. Looks like next Thursday which would be perfect. Hope it holds out. So excited to see the kids. Our friends one white tree who have been stuck in puerto Rico for almost 4 weeks are on the move and hope to be here tomorrow. Yeah. I hope they go to st Martin with us as well. Is always nice to have a buddy boat when you cannot see land.
Sorry no pictures of this beautiful place. I am on my iPad. Maybe next time
