Not Long Enough

Apparently when I posted last in Leverick Bay, the posting from Wednesday didn't go up properly, so look back to see what you missed...

For today we started the day with fresh baked tea biscuits followed by a little wander along the beach at Setting Point and capped off by a cold beer at the Reef Hotel bar. (Aside - Henry says that by then the sun was over the yard-arm somewhere.)

Farewell to the anchorage
Yes, the water is truly that green.
Just after noon we pulled up the anchor and following much too short a stay on Anegada we headed back south, this time to Trellis Bay. The sail back today was pretty much perfect; no squalls like yesterday, constant winds just above the beam and only occasionally waves over about 4'.

Nothing much else to report. Trellis Bay appears much the same as usual with a mix of cruiser live-aboard boats mixed in with the charter crowd. We purposely missed the madness of the full moon party last week (although it can be a lot of fun) and chose instead to arrive this week and meet up with Paul whom we met at this time last year down here.

Bellamy Cay, an island with a restaurant in the middle of Trellis Bay.
Tranquil moments
A mix of delinquent, private and charter boats with the airport in the background. It's quite a busy little place.
Popular bar where we watched the Canadians win Olympic hockey gold four years ago.
Tomorrow we have a car booked and look forward to exploring Tortola from the land side.
