1-18 Great art and Seeing an old friend

This morning we joined Ken and Lori for the short walk to Drunk Bay. The rocky beach art/sculptures/totems/cairns, are made with rocks, shells and sea flotsam. Very interesting and creative; the windward side of the island beautiful.
We had been trying to get together with a friend of ours since we got to St John. Between the weather and Doug's work schedule, that didn't happen until today. As Doug mentioned in his FB picture,we had met many years ago in French Polynesia, then didn't see each other until South Africa years later. Typical cruiser's life. It was great to catch up. Doug's home port for the last 17 years has been St John, with extended periods away during his solo circumnavigation. Lunch was a cheeseburger at Skinny Legs, and we swapped stories over a few beers. It was great seeing Doug, who is now, I might add, a dirt dweller. His former boat, Fellow Traveler, has sold, and Doug is now rehabbing a small house he bought on island.
