Kakao Beach

We had planned to sail over to St Barts early this morning but our gearbox failed so we ended up returning to the anchorage to sort out the engine problem. Instead of hanging on Baie de St Jean which was the original plan, our friends picked us up and we spent the rest of the afternoon on Kakao Beach by Orient Bay. And as for the departure from St Maarten, we are basically stuck here a few more additional days as there's a possible tropical storm making way towards the Caribbean as we speak. No place safer around here than the lagoon of Simpson Bay so seems like we'll be riding out yet another storm on this island.
