Rather than sail on to St Kitts or the BVI we decided to take some time out and stay in this beautiful island. At the moment Rob, Jack and I are sitting in the bar on the beach and our lobster lunch is on the BBQ whilst we use the fast Wi-Fi to keep in touch.
The daily routine continues to be a mixture of chilling out, sailing and necessary trips to the town for food plus chores such as the washing. This morning we made water so I could handwash the sheets and towels. Rob and Jack visited the market and got us stocked up with fresh salads and vegetables plus frozen goods from the supermarket.
We then gathered our laptops and swimming gear into dry bags and used the dinghy to land on the beach by the bar. Blissfully quiet at the moment but last night it was much busier and we met up with Art from ‘Feelin Good’ another ARC yacht. We also saw the couple from ‘Puddle Jumper’ who were the catamaran in Deshaies. We often meet the same yachts as we all make our way around the islands.
Sunshine’s Bar has a lovely ambience with flags and photos all around the open bar which is filled with huge comfy sofas. Outside there are loungers on the beach and tables under sunshades and the staff help you pull your dinghy up the beach when you arrive. The food is amazing, the staff friendly and helpful and it is a fantastic place to waste away the hours.
Later we are spending a bit of time on the beach before heading back to the boat. Monday is the day for visiting the plantation and museums and Jack is kindly treating us to lunch. I am so glad we decided to stop here and we will be back for much longer next time.
