I am back on the mainland and blogging from Seattle with South Austin in the rearview mirror. Don't worry Virgin Island fans, I will most certainly be back in the Caribbean for visits if not full-time. And I'm sure St. Thomas will creep it's way into many future posts. For now, it's all about living in the Pacific Northwest!

Calm Seas!

After the first few days of the charter, it was smooth sailing (or motoring) for the remainder of the week. After a night at Marina Cay and a night in Spanish Town Virgin Gorda, all was calm as we made our way back down the Sir Francis Drake towards home. We stopped a few times along the way for snorkeling and watersports before checking back into St. John. At every stop... the same question, "Are there tortugas here?" Each time as I repeated my speech about it being a big blue ocean without borders or fences, a little turtle head would pop up close to the boat and I would cut my speech short and say with a wide grin, "Yes! There are tortugas here!" Bless their little hearts. They are so helpful. So it is ended, the guests are gone and the boat is clean. I cannot wait to do it again. But this will always be my virgin Obsession charter and I will never forget it. Thank you to my new friends from Argentina (Don't they look happy?). I hope to see you all again soon!
