The Virgin Islands

Friday 23rd March
On the 14th March Jimmy's sister and brother-in-law, Kerry and Todd, came to visit us on board Blue Moon for a five day whirlwind visit. After flying in to St. Thomas from Florida we didn't waste time and attempted to visit as many of the US and British Virgin Islands that we could...Oh, and fit in some fishing, snorkeling,diving and a fair bit of drinking along the way!
On our second day we spotted a pod of Whales in the British virgin Islands.
We were always arriving too late to find a free mooring so there was a lot of anchoring in deep water, luckily  Todd was there to lend a hand picking the anchor up.
Todd caught this Jack fish within ten minutes of being under sail from St. Thomas on the first day. Unfortunately his wish for catching a big Mahi didn't happen as we only caught a Barracuda after this.

The start of a wild night on board the party boat Willy T's anchored off Norman Island!
We managed to fit in a couple of dives, one at the pinnacle rocks of the Indians off Norman island and another on the Wreck of the Royal Mail Steamer Rhone which sank in 1867.
