Day 142- Deep Bay, Antigua

After recovering from the passage with a little R&R, Pablo took advantage of being at a dock to clean off the thick coating of salt that covered every outside surface of the boat. Sterling fixed the fiddle that broke during the passage. We re- provisioned with food, propane, outboard fuel, laundry and other necessities. The grocery store in Jolly Harbor has most items I would find at home, many at similar prices. The outdoor markets in St. John's, the capital, on the other hand, are not like those at home. The variety of fruits and vegetables is amazing. The kids had fun sampling new tastes and flavors. My head is still spinning from the chaotic busyness of the city. There were so many new sights and sounds to take in that I'll be processing them for a while still. After seeing our friends on Skylark arrive safely we left the dock this morning for more exploring. Deep Bay is a popular snorkeling spot, though the water visibility isn't as good as we hoped. We've seen numerous turtles swimming around the boat and the beach was a hit with everyone.
