Today wasn’t anywhere near what I had originally envisioned…. Jost Van Dyke or Cane Garden Bay but…. can’t fight rough seas. Instead I took the photo journey approach including a hike up the mountain to get a scenic look of the city and ship. My friends Janet & Mike who I climbed a far number of hills & mountains with would have been proud. It is amazing how much easier it gets when you are carrying around a lot less weight. At one point I was lucky to get away alive. I went on someone’s property to get a nice view of the harbor and knocked on the door to ask permission. I did not notice an apparently sleeping guard dog as I approached the house. When he attacked, the rope he was attached to came up short about 6 inches. It scared me to death. This dog really wanted a piece of me. I was standing there calculating how much room I had between the edge of the cliff and the dog’s tether and I figured I could just get by without being eaten…. Oh well, no photo there. The hike was steep and the day was hot so I was just drenched…. The views from up top were great and the cold diet coke I had at the bottom was one of the best I ever had. So if you wonder why there are so many pics of the ship and town, it’s because after hiking all that way I was going to include a lot of photos…. Tomorrow we are back in St. Barts…. I am thinking of another long hike. The things I do for this blog…..
