Almost as good as having guests
I once wrote a rant about the VHF radio dialogue that went on in Georgetown, Exuma. After the logic was explained to me by a couple of our readers, it made perfect sense and in truth, I felt a bit silly for even writing the post. Each morning, following the seemingly never-ending radio net that goes on here in Grenada, I now find myself wishing that all of the cruisers here understood the method of more easily finding a free channel to converse. It would sure eliminate a good portion of the radio traffic. Feel free to review the post I just linked, and the comments which follow it to figure out what I’m referring to.
At some point in the past I may also have written about how one of the side benefits of having guests come to visit is that they can bring with them in their luggage a selection of items that are more easily acquired in North America than they are in the islands. Well, second only to that scenario is having a good boating buddy go home for a visit and then bring you some stuff back in his/her luggage. Fortunately for us, we have a very good friend who did exactly that. Donna from Ainulindale, who traveled back to the US for a wedding, arrived back in Hog Island last evening with a plethora of stuff for us. Did someone say Christmas in July?
