We are now in Culebra, Puerto Rico which is considered a Spanish Virgin Islands. We are hanging out here for a week or so. This anchorage has mooring balls and is behind a large reef, so it’s nice and calm. The water is clear, too so we can swim off the boat.

We’ve had BBQ’s on a little island a couple of times with several other boats here.

We are planning to day trip over to Culebrita tomorrow where there is a lighthouse and baths–jacuzzi-like swimming holes.

John found Otto (our “pet” the auto pilot) some new belts and they arrived two days ago, so we’re happy about that. He got 4 so we would have plenty of spares!

We’re feeling like it might be time to head home soon, so John and I are going to have to sit down and map out a plan for the virgin islands, then figure out which way to go to get home. It’s all downwind sailing from here, so we’re all looking forward to some easy sailing–no more windward ho!!!
