Back to St. Kitts – Criss, Amber, & Emma Arrive!
December 29 - 30
The next day, we headed back to St. Kitts and anchored just off of Reggae Beach where we snorkeled and went to shore to enjoy the beach and met some cool people. We stayed for Reggae Beach's famous Friday-night dinner with the beach bonfire. The dinner was really great with lobster, fish, shrimp, and ribs. I think Gene was a little disappointed in the size of the bonfire (in his standards, the bonfire needs to be at least as tall as he is!).
On Saturday morning, we woke up early and sailed over to the marina at Port Zante to get the boat cleaned and ready for our good friends that arrived later that day – Criss (one of Gene's fraternity brothers from GT), Amber (Criss's wife from Shanghai), and Emma (their adorable 2-year old daughter). We spent Saturday night in the marina, and left Sunday morning to head out to sea for a day of sailing and fishing. We sailed up and down the west coast of St. Kitts for the majority of the day, but unfortunately all we caught was a barracuda. We decided to anchor in White House Bay so everyone could get in the water and snorkel around the reef. Emma loved the water and was really cute in her little red life jacket. We had the most beautiful sunset of the trip so far that night in White House Bay.
