I find myself seated at the Village Cay Marina in Road Town, Tortola BVI. They have just about finished a week long festival where the entire island was effectively shut down until Thursday but many parts
of the festival continue in the Western parts
of the Island. I'm going to the donkey races this afternoon.... hope I'm not drafted...
Many hotels are closed until October some late October. The traffic in Road Town is now something I can even drive in with the borrowed jeep with three breaking systems, the regular one, the emergency
break and the REALLLY Emergency
breaking system where I can stick my foot through the whole in the floorboard like in the Flintstones car... not sure how that works with flip flops???
is better.. over past weekend it poured... tried to go to Cane Garden Bay from Sopher's Hole and could not get up one hill... tires just spun in the half inch to inch of water
coming down paved road... though I was in a deep river for a while... slid back toward an unprotected road edge with a 75 foot drop off into something green... bushes I think but didn't have to find out... went back to the apartment I'm renting
for $210 a week while I wait for the survey
I'm having done on a new boat I'm picking up to station here for a few years of Crib sailing.
Hot is not what it is on land... nice winds a fee hundred feet off shore but I'll almost blocked by the hills/mountains. Can't wait for the sea trials Monday... on the water
for half a day at least then going on the hard
for the season.... how many days until December??? I have actually messed up on what day is what showing up a day early or one appointment already... guess I'm on modified Island time... well its 1:50 PM... close enough for a Sundowner or maybe two... who wants to join me??
