We've been slowly restoring the boat to working order, but in the heat, we're not getting chores done as fast as we might. Pam has waxed the entire boat and her legs. I've tinkered with some small chores, put lines in place, fiddled with the solar panels. Drinking a lot of beer!
We have been in Hermitage Bay for most of our time. Great internet, nice beaches and good swimming. The breeze keeps us cool for the most part but you can really understand why southern cultures invented the afternoon siesta. It's just too dammed hot to do anything energetic.

Have enjoyed our lunches, happy hours and dinners with Sid and Cate on Quest so it felt a little weird to leave them. BUT... they have some Antigua things they want to do and we decided that we need to deliver a bottle of indian hot sauce to our friend, Brianna from Abbotsford.
|Sid made me a pre-birthday dinner|
|And then Pam made my birthday lunch!|
So Ross University extracted all their students and sent them home for a short period. And then brought them all to St. Kitts where they are living on a (not the top of the line) cruise ship while they take classes. Hoping to move back to Dominica soon.

We sailed over yesterday with the wind dropping and dropping until we had to motor. The plan is to visit here for a couple of days and then head south to Nevis, Montserrat, Guadeloupe before heading back to Antigua
