Nanny Cay and Benures Bay

We headed over to Nanny Cay on Tortola Island in the BVI's to have the cone clutch replaced on the starboard engine.  It had stopped working right after Kelly and Andrew left. Kirk did tons of research and we waited till we found a mechanic that was recommended and off we went.  Sad to leave friends in St Thomas but our view from our slip was fabulous.  We had chartered out of Nanny Cay prior so we knew what to expect.  We had a good time people watching and even went out to dinner thanks to Grammy's Christmas present.

Early morning at Nanny Cay before we left.  Such a nice beach.

This is a crack up.  In case you can't read it, the sign says "Tree of Shame"  with broken and dinged props hanging from the tree.  Made you smile each time you walked by.


Back in Benures Bay.  Really is a favorite spot for both of us.  This is early morning sun coming over the mountain behind us shinning on the Indians.  The Indians are a favorite place to snorkel.  You can see the boat already there.  It is day mooring balls only. 

This sport fisher did not know what he was doing and his wife did not speak any English. Unfortunately, he hid down below while his wife tried to communicate.  This boat provided amusement for Kirk until in got stuck on the bottom near shore next to us. Then was the excitement started.  Lucky for them Kirk saved the day by pulling them off the bottom along with another dingy.  Kirk was afraid he burned up the dingy motor but it was ok.  Whew!

Diana and Donna perfecting the double kayak maneuvers.  Yes I did get wacked in the head a few times.  We laughed and laughed


We lost my hat.  Blew off my head.  We almost tipped a few times looking for it.

Luckily, Ross (who loves an excuse to swim) came and rescued my hat.  Such a good buddy

Ross and Diana had four friends from Canada come and spend a week or so on the boat with them.  They were tons of fun.  We had dinner and visits and hiked over the "mountain" on Norman Island to get to the Bight and visit Pirates for lunch.  Thanks again for all the fun and lunch Robbie, Susan, Josh and Lynn.  Here is the crew after the hike and lunch.  We still had to hike back over the mountain to the other side to get back to the boats.  Funny, it did not seems nearly as long on the way back.  Beautiful ocean view on the hike.  Thanks for sharing friends Ross and Diana

Back at home for year end work.  Not all work.  Dinner with the fam or part of the fam.  "our boys"

Yeah  Kel even made it in this one.  Sarah where are you?

Our new grand dog.  (Not the one with the hat)

Good ole Tilme

Kirk hung out in St Thomas while i was gone and got lots of boat chores completed.  Thanks to our friends who invited him over or he would have gone crazy.
We are so looking forward to our time with Lisa and Steve who arrived on Jan 30th.
