North Sound: Awaiting the weather window - worse places to wait! PHOTOS

Sunset at Biras Creek after a wonderful day exploring in the dinghy and snorkling around Eustatia Island (overlooking Necker Island) until the world's BIGGEST barracuda came to investigate us - 5 foot minimum! Even scarier than the visit from the lone Caribbean Reef Shark off Cooper Island 3 days earlier! I don't mind seeing them when diving with a huge metal tank on one's back but when it's just the two of you snorkling in the middle of no where it's quite scary! Hoping to head to St. Martin or Nevis on Saturday depending on wind direction - hopefully the sea state will calm by then as well behind the planned itinerary ...
