Rivers of sargassum are floating into the territory making for stinky rides on the $3 bus into Road Town. Shoreline packed with the decomposing sargassum. 
Even water turned brown!

Tradewinds full of Sahara dust yesterday. There are islands out there. This is a view between Nanny Cay fuel dock entrance and the new dock area.

This is the entrance to Pussers. They are serving upstairs. No clothes, I think cold food is being served.


 

OOPS! I mean no clothes are on sale!

There is hope for the BVI and the surrounding islands, spring has sprung, the migration of “Silver spotted flambeau, Agraulis vanilla” butterflies.

WEST END CHECK IN

The tent is check in for west end. Very few boats there. No fuel or water at Sopers Hole.

 

 

Things are so different and unrecognizable. The little bridge to Sopers looks so different with out all the mangroves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This view is looking back towards Pussers.
Grocery store is gone.

 


 

 

These are pictures from Da Best Cup at Sopers Hole, they are doing a bang good business, since there is nothing else open there, except Pussers for lunch. Food was as great as pre Irma!!

- Nanny Cay Boat yard Sunset
  • By Dear Miss Mermaid <dearmissmermaid at aol.com>

Nanny Cay report: There are plenty of de-masted boats in the boat yard along with many on the dock. It’s sad to see all these homes/sailboats that were damaged from Irma. The good news is this. Nanny Cay has fuel, the little Rite Way is open 7am to 7pm, they have been very well stocked and offer quick to go pre packaged meals. Genaker’s Cafe is open for business. Peg legs is not operating, the beach bar is, with sometimes nightly specials, they have taco Tuesday which has been very good. If you are splashing your boat there are still submerged wreckage in that part of Nancy Cay green and red small balls mark the safe way out. Still please be away of your surroundings though. The way out to the new catamaran dock area, which is now being used by monohulls and catamarans is a very sharp left turn once you get out of Nanny Cay’s original dock area out in the Sir France’s Drake Channel.
