Our First Sail this Visit - on the Spinnaker!

Finally, we've left the George Town area and sailed for 3.5 hours, on our Spinnaker at 5 knots, to beautiful Emerald Bay Marina, the location of Sandals and Grand Isle Resorts.

Though Sandals is gated, and basically inaccessible to us except for a hefty day fee - the other place, Grand Isle Resort, is a 5-minute walk away from the Marina, and sports a tiki bar and restaurant with great (though expensive) Pina Coladas, a gorgeous salt-water infinity pool, and a magnificent beach - all available to Marina guests!

We had a wonderful Mexican dinner there last night, and swam at the beach yesterday afternoon and this morning before Susan left to return to Toronto. A nice ending to her visit, before I spent the afternoon doing laundry. Ah well - that's all part of the game.

We'll probably hang out here for a couple more days and then try to sail Stella Maris on Long Island to get our bottom paint done, and then on to Cat Island - a new destination!
