We don’t know.
We enjoy having another couple to hang out and do thing with, but it comes with a price. Instead of just getting up in the morning and leaving when we’re ready, we find that either we, or they are waiting for the other. Why can’t you just say “I’ll meet you there” and go on your merry way? Well for now, it’s because our Buddy’s chart plotter is being repaired. So we are the plotter and creator of routes for the moment…

Agenda: People who come to the BVI for a week have a lot of things to squeeze into a short period of time. Add the weather to that and it becomes even more tight. When our friends from home came here on a charter we found the pace to be much more than we were used. Much more than could handle, even if we wanted to. It is a grueling schedule of dash and stop punctuated by spending large amounts of money in bars and restaurants that we just can’t afford.
I got a call on the VHF that they turned it off and were adrift. I offered help immediately, we would drop the dinghy or pull up our anchor and come raft up… After a few minutes, they were back underway again and on their way to the mooring ball.
We enjoyed a new anchorage and got some down time. In the morning we would choose a new destination… if we were alone, we probably would have stayed another night, but tomorrow promises to be another fun day.
