Sailing to St. Kitts

I have seen some beautiful sunrises! Pink sails didn't really mean "Sailors take warning" today. It was a lovely day!

We set sail for St. Kitts - the boys all pitch in to raise the sails. A good day - just right - winds/waves were perfect.

See? a relaxing sail - couldn't have done this on the sail from St. Barts to Nevis!!

Approaching St. Kitts - we don't have to clear in to customs here because St. Kitts and Nevis are in the same Federation. Thank goodness - a little sour on that process right now!!

We decided to spring for a couple of days in a marina to do some land-based exploring without having to use the dinghy. "Truckie" is the dockmaster - he and his assistants got us situated and plugged into air conditioning!!

Then we were off to explore Basseterre. It's English - and it shows in some of the buildings.

We had lunch at Ballyhoo's - I had fish cakes - yum!

Sharon had the Roti - we shared both and they were delish!!

We wandered around just to see the town. Lovely and the people are so nice!

Back to the boat....

For relaxing before dinner

Out to dinner - the Hayes in there matching shirts
