Culebra and the 2nd Nicest Beach in the World

After a bit of pleading, I convinced John to make a quick detour to Culebra, another Spanish Virgin Island, and our furthest most point in our travels, where we met up with our friends on Little Wing, who were a little surprised to see us there, since the weather was pretty rough, we did not have what we'd call a smooth passage, but time is running out so we have to keep moving! It was a very populated anchorages, and clearly a hot spot. There were many free places to tie up the dinghy to go ashore (including the Dinghy Dock Restaurant).

We gave Dexter to his babysitters on Little Wing and rented a golf cart and explored the island. We headed to the famous Flamenco Beach, which is apparently the 2nd most beautiful beach in the world. It is very very beautiful, clear blue water and beautiful sand, but the Bahamas has so many beautiful beaches, it's hard to say if it's number 2, definitely top 10 though (I know. I'm such a harsh critic, I think I've been spoiled).

The weather was still quite rough, and the waves were big, while I was swimming in the beautiful water, a huge wave took me under with such force that it took my snorkel and hair clip with it, may they rest in peace.

We explored the rest of the island in the golf cart, this time with me driving. Some of the hills were so steep, you weren't sure you would make it up, and then on the way down you felt sure you'd have an accident. We saw another beach, where the turtles nest starting in April, and we saw many horses, roosters and cows.

When we got back, we headed to the Dinghy Dock Restaurant where we found Dexter was enjoying happy hour with Little Wing. We were also happy to find that Rêve D'océan had arrived there, and so we enjoyed one last night together and went for dinner at Mamacitas, before taking off for San Juan at midnight! So much to see and so little time!
