COMMENT: Beach House – ANCHORED – Esperanza, Isla de Vieques (US Territory)
We read the interesting beach signs and anchor buoys last night, warning us about \”unexploded ordinance\”.
Vieques until 2001 was used as a US Military firing range (but only the east side). 99% of it\’s been checked and cleared,
but hey…gotta look anyway!
We motored up to the main town of Esperanza this morning and were met by a Wisconsin \”ex pat\” who came aboard and gave us the low down on the entire island.
We\’ll do the \”bio-luminescence tour\” this evening and see what we\’ll do from there. The \”bio tour\” is a bay that apparently we kayak in in clear bottom boats
and the underwater light show begins! We\’ll update you.
