Back to Portsmouth, Dominique

Nov 10th

We spent the day sailing up to Portsmouth Dominique and were met as usual by a boat boy looking to drum up some business.  The cruising season is just getting started again and so many are hungry for work.   He was disappointed when we told him we only deal with ALEXIS when anchored in Portsmouth.   His look of disappointment was obvious on his face as he pulled slowly away from our boat.   We anchored off of the Purple Turtle where we had access to WiFi last time only to find that they now have their site secured and we will have to pay for internet if we want it.   Alexis came by the boat with his nephew and protégé Donell who gave us a big smile when we addressed him by name.    We explained to him that we would only be staying overnight and would not be needing any supplies or tours this time around.  We had enjoyed his tour of the Indian River when we were here last June.  To anyone spending time in Portsmouth ,  we highly recommend his services if you are in need information or a knowledgeable guide to show you around Dominique.  He is licensed and certified and very professional.    We enjoyed a quiet evening and awoke to find our friends Ken and Katy from s/v Diana anchored near us.  They had caught up with us and had arrived around midnight.   They too are headed back north to their home port of St. John USVI.
