Had a pleasant sail down to Dominica today after a bit of hassle yesterday when a charter cat managed to drag across my anchor and pick it up. it took an hour or so to sort it out. They had burnt out their electric anchor winch and were having to haul by hand. So I finished up using my winch to lift their anchor and chain.

Anyway down in Dominica with the boat tidied up as usual I timed my evening rum and coke with the sunset. Well someone has to check that the Lords of the Sunset are doing a good job.

Tonight was a bit special with the Lords digging deep into their bag of tricks and showing some unusual effects.

A glorious sunset, a small libation in hand, Springsteen on the stereo and a giant local avocado bought from one of the boat boys for dinner. Life is good!


  1. Wow! Those pictures are spectacular and I know that photo's rarely do a sunset justice so the real thing must have been awesome.

  2. It was awesome and it went on and on and on. It must have lasted for an hour.

    At one point all the sky was involved, a pinky purple in the East and the most vivid orange in the West.
