Two hours later we were anchored in Honeymoon Bay off of St. John and swimming in the azure blue waters. It was beach time while the crew was cooking our lunch, grilled chicken and all of the island fixin's would be ready in about an hour. Meanwhile, it was swimming and sun bathing under the beautiful sunny sky's of the midday on the white sand beach. As usual I could not just sit there on the beach so I took my obligatory walk down the beach to see what things the beach had experienced in the time before I arrived. This is something that I always enjoy, seeing what the sea and the lands meeting place could tell me about the past.
The beach time had to quickly passed and we were swimming back to the boat to enjoy an impeccably prepared and served lunch. There was a nice breeze that allowed the hull to slip through the water smoothly and quickly all of the way over. We would be tacking back and forth on the way back to port. So we finished up lunch and cleaned up the dishes, weighed anchor and got underway for home.
The bar on the dock at the end of the day made a wonderful bushwhacker to conclude the day in a wooden chair and the failing light of the early evening. ;o)
