Moored at Vero Beach City Marina after a nice night crossing the Gulf Stream. Feels a little odd to be here!

Anchored at Little Whale Cay tonight. Did a great shallow snorkel and saw all kinds of neat stuff. Then met some Bahamian fishermen and talked with them for a while as the sun set. We like it here.

We're anchored just outside Nassau tonight in prep to head for the Berry Islands tomorrow. Had a nice sail across the Yellow Banks today.

We're at Allen's Cay. Great snorkeling here and lobstering. Late yesterday, we watched a huge, old leatherback turtle swim up to a coral head and immediately fall asleep! He had two big remoras on him to keep him company.

Moved to S. Caicos today. Didn't care for Grand Turk. Now THIS is what we remember! Much prettier, crazy colored water, better anchorage, conch moving around under the boat, better diving. The wind is blowing at 0.0kts tonight. Phew!

Headed for Grand Turk this morning. Should take 2 1/2 days. The waves finally calmed down and the harbor is open. Yesterday there were 3 cruise ships!

Had a great motorsail from Culebra to San Juan, Puerto Rico today. Evergreen is once again anchored in the spot it was in 2004 when we passed through here. Crazy how the time goes! We're really excited to be here. The shoreline looks great and all the palm trees are up and have their fronds. El Morro fort has lots of little ants walking on it and the lawn is green. Looking forward to touring around tomorrow.

We are enjoying the park anchorages on St John. The NPS has the park all cleaned up from the hurricanes but isn't charging for the moorings yet and there are only a few boats cruising around. Its really nice!

Been hanging out in Antigua the past few days exploring Nelson's Dockyard and vicinity. It's been too windy to dive- bummer! So instead we're enjoying the local street food. It is all "comfort food"- not good for you but really good!

Arrived in Deshaies yesterday after some great diving at Pigeon Island Reserve. Headed to Antigua tomorrow because there is some wind coming and we don't want to wait it out here.

Anchored in St Anne, southern Martinique. Did a beautiful, long hike on a coastal trail today. This is a really nice place and no swell!

We have arrived in Martinique! 14 days of magazine style passagemaking, our best ever. So glad to have the Atlantic crossing behind us. Now, to go ashore and trade in our sea legs for land legs.

Our amazing wind left and we finally started the motor a few hours ago to save our sails and our sanity. Headed to the north side of Martinique so no gybing necessary. 150 miles to go but who's counting?!

Continued good sailing. Wind about 15knots on the stern. Seas about 1 meter with the occasional 1.5. We are about 265 miles away!
