March 18th -21st a repeat Visit to Vieques
We departed Culebra for Vieques another Spanish Virgin Isle, we had reports from other cruisers it was a nice place, well it is!
Enjoyed a beam reach with 13 - 15 knots but ended up motoring into Sun Bay on the south side of the island.
18º 05N - 065º 27W
Its a picture postcard huge bay and there were only 9 other boats there, theres a lovely 2 mile light coloured sand palm fringed beach with very blue water and a gated national park with wild horses.
|The gap has a reef which leads to the little town of Esperanza|
|A little closer|
The beach was very quiet being midweek we went ashore and walked through where you can see the gap into the other bay where the little town is Esperanza.
This place has much more activity with street venders, a promenade of sorts, bars and places to eat so we took some lunch and found somewhere to get the internet again.
|Still Sun bay|
|Ángel Rodríguez Cristóbal an activist he was in the US army, a pain in the proverbial for the US in Esperanza. While he was in prison he was murdered in his cell|
|We stopped for a drink here|
The little museum
Walk in back along Sun beach
After a couple of days we lifted the anchor then went into Esperanza bay which was ok for a couple of nights however it was pretty noisy, we should know better as the Puerta Ricans sure know how to party and the music went on until the early hours.
Ok time to move on to Puerto Rico mainland, this time along the south coast.
