I can't believe it's been more than three months since we were in St. Martin again. We returned partly because we had to but mostly because we really, really wanted to. Everyone was eager to re-connect with friends. Drew wrote a movie script and Evelyn managed to convince their friends to film it. We had a lot to do in a short period of time! But we had a lot of fun getting there and being there.
|Ile Fourchue is private but mooring balls have been put in place and are free to use. Since the anchoring has been limited the turtle grass has returned and so have the turtles! We saw about a million of them. But it never gets old.
|The sail from Ile Fourchue was another beautiful downwinder. It was a short distance so we took our time and enjoyed the boat watching. The kids took in the view from higher up.
|We sailed right through a beautiful race.
|The kids stayed on Osler for a movie while we had our first time alone in what felt like years. So we enjoyed a stroll on the French side and an afternoon treat at famous Sarafinas. Lovely!
|Shooting of the movie begins! When we agreed to help the kids make a movie we thought it might take a few hours. Ha!
|Two days and many frayed nerves later....
|A dragonfly. Drew takes lots of photos.
|Justin and Judith heading up.
|A view of Saba.
|Justin and Drew taking a break at the top.
|I'm glad they weren't standing up.
|And an even better view.
|Overlooking the lagoon and Simpson Bay on the Dutch side. Tangent is the small catamaran with the dark sail cover on the left of the anchorage. You can really get a sense of why some boats earn the term "mega yacht."
|We sat in the shade while Andy and the kids were hard at work.
|Filming the last scene - the rescue! That's a wrap! Thank f*cking goodness.
