Day 8
Sailed from Deadmans Bay to Norman Island (Treasure Island) - then past the US Virgins and through Sopers Hole rounding Little Thatch Island and then north to Sandy Cay - here Jen and Peter swam ashore.
Late afternoon, and we set off for Jost Van Dyke Island - we anchored in the Great Harbour ( Island population 200 - Town Poulation 190 ). Wandered ashore in our best dresses, and shirts, and fine dined at Ali Baba`s West Indian Restuarant for $131.10 !  The entertainment was the Virgin Gospel Radio live phone - in - "Praise the Lord"  ( Well it was Easter Sunday.. )   We tried to blend in ... but we looked a very English family set.
Cap`n Pete and Helen started the evening with a couple of Painkillers, whilst Jen stuck to the trusted Pinacolada formula.
We were the only guests...everyone else just came to watch and meditate as the sun set - old ladies, young children, and several mangey dogs. We were, as always quite delighted with the experience - the service from 12 year old Weslow was well up to West End standards! ( Including the swollen 15% service charge!)
Quite night at anchor in the bay.
