Bye Bye Sainte-Anne

My solo trip over to Sainte-Anne from Rodney Bay was uneventful and I got to spend the week exploring Sainte-Anne and Le Marin with Gary and Donna from Page One. Had some nice French lunches, a great feed of ribs and enjoyed the fresh baquettes with cheese and wine.

It was cool to see fellow members of the Rodney Bay Bachelors' Club, Bob and Jeff from Chemaya pull in a day or so later. Bob was across from me on the dock in Rodney Bay. He is taking his boat back to Florida and was having trouble with his steering. He was afraid that he was going to have to haul the boat to get the work done so he was thrilled when he found it was just a seized bearing that they could fix. So we got a chance to have several more adult beverages before they headed off north.

Of course the highlight was on Sunday when a van pulled up to the park where I was sitting and delivered Pam! Yay!!! Jubilation!!! She reported to me that all kids and grandkids passed her inspection and everything is peachy on the home front. So now it was time to put me to the test. The boat was relatively clean and the varnish is shining. I think I'm OK.

Pam had friends over while she was home. Didn't want them to miss me!

Yumm! Accras de Morue
Ed and Ann on Windswept Dreams pulled in the day before we were going to leave so now we will have travelling buddies on our trip back up to Antigua. We have 3 weeks before we haul so we will spend 10 days cruising up through the islands and 10 days getting the boat ready for storage at North Sound.

Heading north to Dominica tomorrow!!! See you there.

  1. It looks like you survived very nicely without your better half. Sorry we missed seeing Pam on her return. Life here has been very hectic with home hunting and other stuff. Enjoy your last three weeks in paradise.

    1. Thanks for your comment.

      This is fun! We are enjoying beautiful sails between the islands with lots of time before we haul. Then we get to immerse in all that fun at home.

      Life is good!
