BVI Trip - Day 13

Starting in Maho Bay we boarded our dinghy and motored over to Cinnamon Bay. We beached the dinghy on a lonely little beach and then decided to wander along the shore following a goat trail over the rocks.

Karen, Brenda and Mike enjoyed the hike while Peter brought the dinghy around to the next beach. We beached the dinghy again for a little shore time.

In Cinnamon Bay there is a nice little archeology museum right on the beach which was interesting to tour. We then hiked up the road to a sugar plantation ruins that meandered through a quiet peaceful woods. It was nice to be on land and exploring a little bit.

We had a very wet dinghy ride against the wind and waves back to our sailboat. We snorkeled Watermelon Cay right off the boat and although it was interesting the coral comes too close to the surface to allow swimming above it.

We pulled in the mooring lines and headed over to Leinster Bay for the night. Once there, Karen made a wonderful shrimp with pesto sauce dinner - enough to feed 6-7 people. It only took four hungry sailors to woof it all down. A nice sunset and Day 13 came to a close. Tomorrow we explore this beautiful bay.
