Five days since arrival, easy though customs, but bags were dropped off carts in crowded tent, no big deal, had great burgers at Buccaneer Bar first night, lot of people there with great music. Sunday grocery shopped at the fabulous new Carrefour by the round-about and at night good food at Green House, only 30% occupied, Mon. visited Flamingo workers as they were leaving for the day, they have one more week before they are out of work, however a few of them will be working for the construction company that is now stripping the building to redo the whole complex. Tuesday, did a small tour, Maho area in bad shape, Cupe Coy, lot of damage to old building, but newer hotels look fairly good along with Marina area pretty good. Dinner at Toppers, only two tables besides ours, great food good price. Wed. easy day and lots of cruise people on Kim Shaw beach, fantastic pizza from La Patrona at night. Today beach day with very few on the beach, no cruisers, and then great great prime rib at the Green house.

With the recent installation of the nude pool heater and near completion of the final clothing-optional side and garden view rooms renovations, Hedo has set itself into the 4+ to 5 star resort range and more sold-out weeks are expected throughout the year.

Happy 2018 here, there, everywhere!

Yesterday at 10:36 PM Full Moon Party at Trellis [by Nobbie]
Hi

We've got a 2 week charter with DYC coming up on 25th Feb and I was wondering if anybody knows if there will be a full moon party at Trellis on 1st March? I thought I'd read somewhere that they had one for NYE but wasn't sure if they were having any more at the moment?

Thanks

Carl

Yesterday at 10:12 PM Island Hopping - without a vessel [by rbartolini12]
Hi everyone,

First time poster so please be gentle smile I apologize in advance if this topic has been beaten to death....

A little background - I'm a 34 year old male coming off my second knee surgery since Aug. I've been the sole caretaker of a family member with severe mental health issues for the last 5 years.

Basically, I need to get the hell out of here to recharge for a few months or longer and the BVIs have always been the #1 destination on my wish list.

My question is this - how apt are you to offer a ride to someone looking to jump islands?

I realize this question almost comes off as cheap because you've spent a lot of money to own or charter a vessel and I'd be trying to do it on the cheap, which I realize is almost impossible. But I'd hope to reciprocate by using 20 years worth of experience fishing the northeast, cooking, cleaning, general labor, straight up cash, etc. I would do my part and then some. I would have a decent amount of money saved.

I'm an easy going guy who likes good conversation over a couple drinks. I love to fish, hike and snorkel. I've lived in the Florida Keys (Big Pine) and I've spent time in T&C and Aruba.

Given all that info (thanks for bearing with me) would any of you be at all inclined to give someone like me a lift if it fit your itinerary? One thing that might be a problem and might even make it damn near impossible is that I'm 6'3.

Any advice/insight, experiences good or bad, would be greatly appreciated. If anyone knows of any other forums that might better serve this question I'd welcome all suggestions.

Thank you all for taking the time to read this. Safe travels!

- Rob B
