Last Swing Around St. Martin

Woke up to the water lapping on the side of the hull and turned to face the hatch to see the sunrise illuminate the small island that we hiked over yesterday (just outside of Orient Bay). It has been gorgeous, with a few squalls to wash off the boat but not enough to put a damper on anyone’s day. There were tons of tourists on shore, but they were all really nice. Today will be our last day moving the boat until May and it always brings a sense of melancholy for me. It has been an interesting trip with lots of travel on the big blue watery road, not our normal relaxing trip, but a good one. Will dream of the beautiful turquoise water, yellow bellied birds, warm sea air on my face, and the constant rolling of the boat! Off to Oyster Pond…..
