This morning as well as yesterday afternoon, Simpson Bay and the Caribbean Sea looks like a lake. It’s like something has sucked all the breeze out of here. It is really hot and humid here the last several days. Saba looks sooooo close, like a ten min boat ride, very strange. We were going to mullet today, but as clam as the water is, why even go!

Amazing picture of Saba!! Regarding the ocean being dead flat calm, we were on a cruise the week that Luis hit SXM. We were supposed to go to SXM and STT and of course, we were diverted to the Western Caribbean instead. I remember when we were leaving Grand Cayman, the ocean was just dead flat calm, except for the waves generated by our passing. It was spooky, the calmest water we had ever seen while at sea. We speculated at the time that Luis had sucked all the energy out of the basin. I have no idea whether we were right then, or you are right now. I sincerely hope the CALM continues for SXM for the rest of this hurricane season and beyond!

Wish Bill had gotten some last night. Islands so clear, flat water and a beautiful sunset. Saba has since landed back on the horizon.

FANTASTIC PICS of Saba. I am reasonable with photography, so I thought, but that is superb. Puts me to shame. What camera, magnification and from where did you take this pls? It appears from a boat and nearby as the detail is stunning.

We used to look out at Saba from Royal Islander and joke that they towed it in place each day. Some days you would see it, some not.

It's our Brigadoon! She hides behind Sahara Dust quite frequently. We sometimes don't see her for months.

It's a little scary when you can get such clear pictures. Happy it's a bit hazy today.
