One of the special pleasures of longer passages is the opportunity to witness the full cycle of the earth’s rotation. The color of the water, the clouds and all that surrounds us changes radically from sunset to sunrise. Here are some pics from last night’s passage to illustrate what I’m talking about.
While I wrote in my last post that we had both a Plan A destination (Saba) and a Plan B destination (St. Kitts), we improvised on the fly again and opted to split the difference between the two spots, leaving us at Plan C (Statia).
St. Eustatius, more commonly referred to as Statia, is one of the few Eastern Caribbean islands that we have yet to explore. While Saba remains on the “save for later” list, Statia reportedly has some great hiking too. Who knows, maybe we’ll even find the Easter Bunny while we’re out exploring.
