Customs & Immigration are available at Great Harbour on Jost Van Dyke, open at 8:30 so we mozied over and picked up a ball in the bay. Once we'd paid our $1 for the paperwork (only if u have the exact change so I scrounged up dimes and pennies to make it - otherwise $5 at that time of the morning when they have no change), we filled our tanks with water at the dock and pulled down the BVI flag from our mast. Next stop Cruz Bay to check back in with U.S. Homeland Security. Since it had now marched on to lunch-time, we started with an appetizer slice of pizza at Ronnie's (up the hill) and then found Woodies where Henry had a delectable fish sandwish and I enjoyed a basket of beer-battered shrimp. We definitely have to do some hiking on St. John to work off this lunch!

In Lameshur Bay we whiled away the remainder of the afternoon as we watched at least four turtles feeding on the seagrass in the bay, listened to the birds rauchously calling from shore and watched the play of lengthening shadows across the unoccupied hillsides in front of us.
