What do you do if you only have a week left in Paradise? You call your family and have one last party in the Sun! So that’s what we did with our last few days in the Virgin Islands. We had George and MaryAnn (Andrea’s parents) on board for a week and went back to our favorite spots, as well as some new ones.
We treated ourselves to great meals like lunch at the Deadman’s Beach Bar and Grill at the Peter Island Resort.
And we introduced MaryAnn to her new favorite drink: the Painkiller.
There was also time for mother-daughter moments…
…and night reading.
In fact, we soon found our perfect daily routine: We would look for a good beach to spend the day…
…and a happy hour to spend the evening.
One of the most entertaining ones was Michael Beans’ show at Marina Cay. His pirate inspired songs and never ending “aaaaarrrss” made for a fun-filled night of music and rum. And yes, Mary Ann was having her favorite drink, the Painkillaaaarrrr.
But of course, it wasn’t all partying and relaxing. Watch George going to work, picking up a mooring…
…and Andrea playing “taxi-driver” each time we dinghied ashore.
As you know by now, there is no better way to describe a week on Can Drac than with a short video:

We are glad we were able to share pieces of our trip with family.
We miss you already and cannot wait to see you in the Med!
On to new waters
Throughout the week, there was always one thing in the back of our minds. We knew the fun in the Sun was not going to last forever.
The storms in the horizon were a clear reminder that the time to leave the area was getting near. Hurricane season is just around the corner and although we like our wind to get us moving, we have no interest in experiencing one of those first hand!
So, after toasting with our fellow friends and cruisers at Soper's Hole, we set our minds on the next phase of our trip.
As we leave on the first leg of our Atlantic crossing this week, we’ll be thinking of all of you who have been taking the time to follow our travels, leaving us your comments and wishing us well.
