Christiansted St. Croix, USVI - N17.45 W64.41 May 10 – May 20 2010

After an overnight sail from Puerto Rico we arrived at this quaint island located south of the British Virgins by some 50 miles.

The architecture is Danish with European seaport influence abundant to the first time visitor. There are many quaint shops and historical sites located throughout the island. It is a full day car trip to see the eastern dramatic coastline overlooking the Caribbean and adjoining reefs along the south coast to Fredrickstad the Capital of St. Croix and is the main Cruise ship port . On the way back to the Christiansted anchorage, you will drive thru a spectacular old wood rain forest and stop for a cool beverage with the local beer drinking pigs (non-alcoholic)

While in St Croix we met up with old friends from Cartagena, Dave and Shardq Sv Morgan and met new friends GB and Sarah Sv Djarrka. The more of the world we see the more we realize just how small. It is one of the great pleasures of our sailing life to meet so many wonderful helpful people along the way.
