En Route to Brewer
We jumped up on the morning of the
23rd of January and left Honeymoon Bay at 08:30 for the ten mile journey to
Brewer Bay to meet up with Ann and Alan of Freya of Clyde (Ann organised our
trip to Venezuela to see the Angel Falls and is currently organising our trip to
Peru in September - huge thanks Ann, you're a STAR).
There was an immediate impression of
far more wealth looking toward St Thomas compared to
cliff top homes
We passed a "hurricane hole" just to
the north of Charlotte Amalie, access is via a concealed
entry behind some cliffs. This boat is tucked in
quite well protected from the swell we were in.
Our first view of the capital city -
A few miles past we saw the huge bay leading to the airport. Breaking waves over the submerged rocks show that the
islands are volcanic in origin
aircraft and landing on the runway protected by our old friends the "Tetra Blocks"
Behind the "wall" which is the runway
of Cyril E. King Airport is the virtually deserted, huge Brewer Bay. There
was Freya of Cyde to welcome us with a cuppa. Apart
from the small airport, the only buildings here belong to the University - which
gave us a good free wi-fi signal
ALL IN ALL WHAT A PERFECT
