006 - Looks like light wind for the next couple of days but maybe a little on the last day. Just did some light wind stuff with Ezzy 5.5 FR and JP 145 Fun Ride. Still need work on backwind sailing and will try and get more practice for the rest of the trip.  Off and on showers today so decided to spend the afternoon driving around the island and taking photos. Through the donkey preserve to the east coast which has a nice shoreline, at the north is the Rincon National Park and Flamingo Sanctuary very scenic especially some of the higher elevations looking over endless water. The entire west coast and the main city Kralendijk are all about diving. Going to the south end there are miles of holding basins for the solar salt works and sometimes surfable waves. Got back to Lac Bay which may be the nicest part of the island and definitely the place to stay.
