We moved down to Statia aka St Eustatius, as after three unsuccessful
attempts to get ashore at Saba we gave up.
Statia apart from the oil terminal is a very pretty island, volcanic cones
and rainforest, not the sandy beach, palm tree Caribbean. The inhabitants
are extremely friendly, and live in colourful tidy houses.
As we were hiking to the rim of the volcano (what do you expect?) we could
here movement in the fallen leaves: It turned out to be soldier crabs, (like
hermit crabs in borrowed shells, but up to fist sized), rolling down the
hillside in their shells. Apparently they roll all the way down, from as
high as 600m (rim of crater), to the sea. There they mate and then climb all
the way back up to the top. The things animals do for love!
Photos will follow but we still have no WIFI.
