Nothing goes to windward…
Nothing goes to windward like a 747. That is a very popular expression amongst cruisers. Although the jets we’ll be on later today are a bit smaller than a 747, I suspect we’ll find that they will travel to windward equally well, certainly much better than the sailboat that we’re used to traveling on. Our trip to California, although short, was wonderful and we were overjoyed to finally be able to hold our new granddaughter in our arms. Demi is a beautiful, happy baby and our daughter Cass and her husband Robbie are doing a fantastic job in providing her with a loving home to grow up in. We are very happy for them.
It was great to have everyone together.
Nana Rocks! Like we didn’t all know that already.
As most of you would expect, we took advantage of the shopping opportunities in the US to pick up a few things that are hard to acquire in the Caribbean. Unfortunately, one of the shipments of boat parts that we were expecting contained the wrong stuff. Oh well… at least they didn’t ship the incorrect items all the way to the islands!
Two Buck Chuck from Trader Joe’s.
If only we could bring back a couple dozen bottles of this with us.
I woke to find that I had been pushed to the edge of the bed.
This was who was doing the pushing!
If all goes well, tomorrow’s blog entry will once again be posted from tropical St. Martin. There are a few things that we want to accomplish before we set sail from SXM, some work related and others recreational. Of course, we’ll be sure to post all the dirty details so that those who are interested can vicariously join in the fun.
Cass and Demi joined us for our final aeroSling workout.
Demi was a big help, providing me with some extra resistance.
