Friends come and friends go
As I wrote yesterday, we were happy to have our friends Wade and Maureen arrive here in Grenada. We’ve enjoyed spending some time with them, including helping them to lose their virginity at last night’s Hash. Fun times.
It is a bit of a bitter sweet time for us though as our other friends, George and Katherine on Earthling, have now left the island after hauling the boat at Grenada Marine. We have cruised on and off with George (more on than off) since mid-January and have had plenty of good times together. An established fact of cruising though is that people come and go into your lives and you need to deal with it. This, of course, happens on land too but with the transient nature of the boating lifestyle, it happens much more frequently here. Fortunately, in some cases, we’re lucky to have good friends re-enter our lives at a later point, which is what we hope will happen with our Earthling buddies. Others, due to their traveling plans, make that less likely to occur, but we can still always hope.
Best wishes George. Make sure you don’t get hung-up on land. We expect to see you back out here at the end of H-season.
George looks on as Earthling flies through the air. Check out George’s post where he details the steps he took before leaving his boat at the yard.
