The sails are on, the canvas is up, all systems are working! It has stopped raining so now it is just hellish hot. The locals tell us that it will cool down soon.
One of our new toys is a Roku wireless streaming device that allows us to watch stuff like Downton Abbey on our boat TV so we are feeling quite decadent. What the #%$* is the deal with Matthew? OMG!
Our daughters have been contacting us via google-chat and putting our grandchildren onscreen so we are feeling well connected. It's all good.
We dinghied over to Woburn and walked up to the Little Dipper restaurant - run by Joan, the wife of Roc, our taxi driver. Pam had the lambi (conch), Glen had the lobster. The lobster cost more than twice as much as the lambi and was half as good. Live and learn.

The next day we will head out for a week at anchor. God, that is going to be hot. We will have to spend the day in the water like hippopotomi. Then we strike out to Port Louis Marina in St. Georges to pick up John and Jan for their "3 hour tour" of the Grenadines and the Tobago Keys.
