The last day of charter was yesterday and we managed to fit a lot into the day. It started with the morning swim around Salt Island Bay, there was a few stingers in the water so we had to vinegar a few of the swimmers but nothing to bad! After breakfast every one headed ashore to have a look around and to hunt out the geo cache. Heres Linda and Will trying to work out the GPS for the geo cache
They found it and got some great pictures from the peak
While they were off on the Island me and Heather went for a quick dive in the bay, it was pretty spectacular, hermit crabs, eels, juvenile angel fish and as we were heading back to the boat I heard Heather squeel behind me, I turned around and we had picked up a few friends
These remora were about 3 1/2 feet long, they stayed with us for at least 20 minutes, they kept trying to stick on to us.
We had a sail down to the Baths, the north swells have finally finished, so the group wanted to get back to the baths so they could swim and do the land tour, they loved the area and had a play afternoon there, followed by a few mile swim for the last swim of the trip.
We spent our last night on dock as we had some early flights next morning, we had a quick cocktail game before dinner, out came the shots!! Poor Heather got the ominous one given to her
Linda ended up with more than her share of shots, after dinner she had a quick nap
So that brings us up to speed. Every one had an early flight, so left early. We have had a great first charter back in the BVI, swim vacation had a great time and left some really nice comments in our guest book:
