The chairs under the Palm trees on the left side of the picture is where we were sitting. We swam all day yesterday. Not much seaweed in the water either. Glad to hear it's gone now. The wind has been out of the east since we have been here and seems to be keeping it away.

We just spent 5 wonderful days at Mary's Boon, just left on Friday. A little each day but they raked it up most days so we were fine. I think Simpson Bay is one of the best and most dependable beaches. A lot of seaweed at the other end of the beach, it seems to gather at that end as the photo shows. I am sure in a little time it will get better.

Just remember the seaweed might be gone now but it can come back in a vengeance overnight.

We flew in yesterday and as the plane descended we could see a lot of streaks close to SXM.

Maybe we all need to take up a collection.

We will back when the island is ready for us!!

This is going to be a long wait, but the reward at the end will be worth it.

We went to Dawn Beach because Grace and her Sister wanted Conch Salad. The seaweed there is beyond belief. 2 Payloaders moving it. There is a mountain of it between Busbys and The Westin.

I will see if I can post some pictures.

Dawn Beach seems to always have the worst of it. How's the current seaweed situation other places you've been?

Nothing at Friars at all. Very little around El Zafiro and BSV area of SBB.
