We arrived at Coopers Island after a slight detour via Peter Island. Another lovely bay (the Tikka tshirts have got it right - another day another bay), lazy afternoon and dinner on board.

Sunday morning was bright and sunny so we decided to stay for the day and head to the baths the following day. We watched the turtles swimming around us

Lunch ashore in the beach resort which had its own microbrewery = happy Graham with his pint of bitter.

Monday took us to Virgin Gorda and the much awaited Baths - large boulders and pools set between two sandy bays. Whilst we had high expectations we were still blown away by the beauty and uniqueness of this place. Crystal clear water and great views

The Baths have to be the highlight of the trip so far.

After all that beauty we when went to Spanish Town to sort customs and fill the jerry cans with extra fuel. The contrast was stark - this is another marina that suffered at Irma’s hands and broken boats and abandoned building abound.

After finding out that this marina also had no diesel the guys walked up the road with the cans to the local petrol station to fill them. Next stop Anegada - our last before Bermuda.
