Grande Bay

grande-bay-august-06.jpg

This picture is form the middle of August, but you can see that things are really coming along. We were staying at Gallows Point, and the crews were there working everyday. I have to admit that on the whole I think the project looks okay. It is going to fit into the space a lot better than I imagined it ever would.

Mister "B" Maiden Voyage

We came over to St. John Thursday on this huge barge. It looked brand new - so I asked one of the captains when it was put in service - "Today!" he said. He told me the barge has been here for about a month, but there were some Coast Guard issues to clear up. We hit some big swells on the way over, it was pretty wild.

Deer near Cinnamon Bay, St. John

Caught this doe roadside this morning out near Cinnamon. There were a few around, but they were really skittish. She took off when we put the window down to take the shot, but we got this one photo.

Here is a photo from Sunday, August 7, 2005. Sorry about the cranium in the shot, I was on the ferry. There is definitely construction going on.

Trimaran at Salt Pond Bay, St. John

Trimaran at Salt Pond

Coming down the dirt road to Salt Pond a few weeks ago I caught this boat on a mooring. Salt Pond is one of my favorite beaches - have seen many turtles in the bay, and the last time we went there was an amazing amount of conch and other small life right off the beach which my kids really enjoyed.

I was out in a dinghy with my brother when this amazing ship came by us. This is in front of Mary Point, on Francis Bay.

Stingray at Jumbie Bay, St. John

Stingray at Jumbie Bay

Trying this one again. There was a problem last time but I think I have the bugs worked out now. This ray almost swam over over feet. Scared my friends a bit I think -

Took this back in 2002 I think. Beautiful day, we were on our way back from Salt Pond probably, which is one of my favorite beaches.

I found this on line somewhere - I think a USGS site or something like that.
