Lovely sailing on our passage from Puerto Rico to the Turks & Caicos Islands, once past the light air of our first day.  Following winds & seas; dolphins; brilliant moonlight at night.  The first day’s slow travel, however, meant we were approaching the TCI late in the day.  We anchored in the lee of a tiny speck of an island, rather than try to reach Providenciales (“Provo”) in the dark.

Humpback whales breaching. (Not much of a photo, but when I get one of a breaching whale, I feel like I need to share it).

Sunset at French Cay, after anchoring and a swim.  

A wreck near our tiny cay — just to emphasize why we didn’t want to go in after dark.  Again, not much of a photo. :-(
