Bye for now...

When we were planning our trip back home we looked for flights from Grenada to Vancouver… and surrounding airports.  So we got this interesting combo… Grenada to Miami to Las Vegas to Bellingham.  Now Bellingham is only 30 miles south of our home in Abbotsford, closer than Vancouver so it makes for an easy trip home… AND, we spend the night in Vegas.  Shows, casinos, hookers, booze, all-nighters, tattoos… probably not… but makes for an interesting return.

Don and Pat scooped us up from BLI and delivered us home.  We were in the house by mid afternoon and... daughter Jen and kids were there to meet us so we had a very happy reunion and a busy evening!

What a season!!!  We got to show the Burnsies, the Keys, the Macdonalds, the Inmans and son, Brad around the areas we have been cruising.  We think they got a nice taste of the Eastern Caribbean.  We didn’t see much new territory but we met up with cruising buddies from previous years and enjoyed meeting new ones.  That is the charm of this lifestyle… meeting amazing people with similar interests and hearing their stories.

Now we get to spend the next 7 or 8 months with loved ones and enjoy our terrific backyard (figuratively and literally).  And… in the backs of our minds… we will be developing plans for our sailing adventures next year.

Until then, Faithful Reader…

  1. Glad you guys are home safe. We have been following your travels but didn't realized you lived close to where we are. We are Canadians from Nova Scotia but are currently stationed on Whidbey Island. Enjoy your time with the kids. Looking forward to next season!
