OllieEh,

Maybe you were thinking of Moby Dick who was a white whale and therefore had a white tail 😃

Ahoy Captains,

Hopefully some useful links for Flight Cancellations and Delays

Check to see if Your Flight is being routinely Cancelled or Delayed over the past few Days or Weeks –
Go to - https://flightaware.com/
Enter your 'Departure' and 'Arrival'
Choose your Flight from the 'Ident' Column
Scroll down to see the past few Past Flights and choose 'View More Flight History'

Check to see if Your Flight has been Cancelled or Delayed within the past few Hours –
https://flightaware.com/
https://www.flightstats\
https://www.flightradar24.com/data
Or directly with the Airline or Airport.

Check the ‘Misery Map’ to see if real time Weather or Crew or ? are contributing to flight Delays or Cancellations –
https://flightaware.com/miserymap/

Many Flights departing from the Caribbean have a corresponding Incoming Flight.
Check for arrivals with a similar Flight #, usually odd/even, and track it to see if it is On Time –

The island is extremely dry. A local friend said they haven’t had rain Quartier-d'Orleans in months. Just had a heavy downpour at 3 am in Grand Case area and it stopped. Started again about 5am and stopped. Heavy cloud cover but the sun is peeking through in spots to the northeast. It’s supposed to rain all day but we’ll see. It sucks to lose a day to weather but happy for the island and residents if it does come. C’est la vie, non?

We switched a week ago, going July 12 thru the 24th.
We thought we had to make it work thru SJU/EIS, we have one unvaccinated going, then the rules changed. So direct to STT, then the ferry.

Anegada Express only runs 3 days a week - Thursday/Saturday/Sunday. Might be rocket science for you.

Le Petite cannot be beat, IMHO. It is small, but very charming and the owners are fantastic. Yes it is at the other end of Grand Case, however, we always rent a car so it has never been a problem. The dining in Grand Case is very good and we enjoy the view.
Good luck with whatever you choose. Glad you can go back! We are heading there next week and will be staying at Petite!

Tim--I agree with you, if chairs are free, I don't bring a cooler. I would personally never bring a cooler to a place like AMBC either, as it doesn't seem that kind of place, to me. We always take a cooler to Mullet and to Orient, if we're going to Orient for the day, versus just for lunch. Although almost everywhere I go, I take a bottle of water, which either stays in the car or goes with me, depending on the venue.

I hope everything works out for you, so you don't have to worry about it!!

They have been accepting EHAS stuff that is a day old, but it can't hurt to re-submit. Best wishes!

We just cleared into Culebra from St Thomas yesterday (6/30) and it was just as agimsrud said. We did have some internet problems getting the video call going, but got that sorted by doing it on my laptop using the phone as a hotspot. Also, he wanted to see our passports - probably just to make sure we had them (since the passport info had already been entered in CBP Roam).

most places I think use them about 2 weeks. Ask around. As duckfat mentioned, you can typically find fresh all year if you ask around but that's a different discussion I'll leave alone.

This man was very lucky to have been shot in the leg and not elsewhere. As a career banker, I have had the misfortune to have been robbed several times, twice at gun-point. On one occasion, I had the ceiling shot out over my head by an impatient young man who thought we were not putting the cash into his bag fast enough. After that, he put the gun to the manager's head.

NEVER, EVER intervene, interfere - whatever you want to call it - with someone with a gun under these circumstances.

Things could have been so much worse for this tourist and others in the restaurant.

Glad to hear the man recovered physically. Not so sure about his psychological state, though.

Southern Caribbean

Passage south is a piece of cake...take your time, no need to dead head to Grenada unless you really want to. Grenada is great, you will love it.
While there you are in easy reach of some interesting and fun destinations.....Trinidad, Los Roques, etc.
Much rather be on the boat down south than haul and put up in BVI or PR.
Need help for the passage, south or north bound, let me know.

Yes, tropical storms or hurricanes are fairly rare that far south. As of now, the NHC has issued the following warnings regarding Potential Tropical Cylone Two:

"A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for...
* Bonaire
* Curacao
* Aruba
* Coast of Venezuela from the Peninsula de Paraguana
westward to the Colombia/Venezuela border including the Gulf of
Venezuela.
* Coast of Colombia from the Colombia/Venezuela border westward to
Santa Marta"

We will be there July 30 - Aug 7 on a Dream Yacht Lagoon 46 ("Aren't We Lucky" is the name I think). I had pinged Ann as well and may see if Belle will have Cow Wreck open, but otherwise will probably skip Anegada. Like you, I expect we will eat more dinners on the boat than typical, but will hit the ones you mentioned. Maybe stay a couple of nights in anchorages we don't always visit (Lee Bay, Benures, White Bay (Guana)). Admittedly, I am a little nervous going this late (expecially with those crosses starting to pop up), but we could not resist squeezing in one last trip. Would love to hear what else you find open then and we will look for you there!
