David & Rachel Arrived At Town

Prickly Bay ended up being our very first anchoring remain in Grenada, mostly since it sounded familiar and had been the closest harbor after we rounded the southern tip associated with island. We invested per week there familiarizing ourselves with your brand new digs: figuring out where you’ll get regarding the coach discover food, how to locate the fastest wifi, fulfilling our next-door neighbors, etc. We additionally did the minimum level of focus on the watercraft in order to say we got one thing done. We polished our stainless steel and Jon replaced our gear shift cable that broke long ago into the BVIs.

But most of the time we concentrated on slowing down. We came across up with friends we’d met on the way making some new ones, investing most likely way too many evenings consuming good beer at the western Indies brewing company.

Searching for the absolute most convenient spot to start our quickly showing up new crew users, David and Rachel, in to the cruising life, we moved to Mt. Hartman Bay and landed by having a thud – there is an abrupt gust – regarding the dock. I’d convinced myself our visitors would be reaching 10pm that evening, so with some time to kill we joined friends at brewery (once more) and decided we might just walk a few kilometers to your airport. Fortunately, the walk didn’t just take terribly very long because their journey in fact landed at 8pm. They certainly were simply exiting traditions even as we walked up and it occurred in my experience that military time conversions are not 2nd nature to me therefore well worth dual (or triple) checking.

David and Rachel left because of their round-the-world adventure annually before we did, so we left Colorado per month or two before they came back so that it was in fact 2 yrs since we last saw both. It most likely sounds strange, but knowing that they would come to visit us in Grenada if we made it by July was a big factor in our decision to carry on south. They sent word which they were ready to purchase routes across the time of our long beat to windward across the south coast of Puerto Rico, once we were both pretty over being included and weren’t yes what to do next. We didn’t genuinely wish to reverse most likely that work and weren’t comfortable with staying placed, so their willingness to journey to Grenada offered us the shot-in-the-arm we needed to keep going ourselves and we’re so glad we did.

It absolutely was wonderful to see our buddies once again and introduce them to the brand new lifestyle. The week flew by once we did our better to consume the area while comparing our traveling experiences and exchanging stories.

While David and Rachel were visiting a fresh development was underway for all of us. We’dn’t in the pipeline on coming back home anyway directly after we set sail last year because it’s not really within our spending plan. Nevertheless when my old coworker informed me personally that she had been heading off to fundamental training for four months, it simply seemed too serendipitous not to ever get in touch with my old employer to see when they could use any assistance while she’s gone. Ends up, they may be able. For six months. So Jon and I are flying house in a couple of days to consult with our family and friends utilizing the additional bonus that people should be able to reimburse ourselves the routes and keeping the watercraft on a mooring while we’re gone. Jon is returning after only three weeks to manage the ship and finish start a number of our too much time ignored projects. But more on that later. For the time being it feels very good to say, “See you quickly!”
