We’re going ghost hunting!
Everyone should now feel more secure knowing that Rebecca and I both passed our ENG1 seafarer medical exam yesterday, and yes, I do say that with a high degree of sarcasm. This medical exam, which in these parts can only be administered by one particular doctor in Trinidad and another one in Barbados, is a requirement for an MCA approved commercial license (ie. RYA Yachtmaster). It was not necessary for Rebecca to do this thorough an exam for her to participate in the STCW course but since we were here, we decided that she might as well get it done too.
Now that we got that out of the way though, and since Rebecca’s course doesn’t begin until December 3rd, we’ll be heading out this morning to nearby Chacachacare Island to hide out for a bit. The island, which for a period of time housed a leper colony, is rumored to be haunted. If you don’t hear from us for a couple of days, I would credit that to a lack of internet access as opposed to ghosts. At least I hope so!
