Hurricane Igor mercifully turned north at the last possible moment and is currently barely skimming the edge of the leeward islands (that's us). It hasn't caused any extreme weather so far - just extreme waves. Which is good if you're on the hunt for a blue bead, like we've been since we first got here. Supposedly rough water churns them up, so we headed down to Crook's Castle to see what we could find.

Our loot. No blue beads, but we found some awesome shells. The two to the right are by far the biggest in our collection. The pieces of ceramic dishes are from the 1700s. You find little bits everywhere - even in the pavement - but these are the two largest pieces I've ever found. So it was a good day for treasure.
