Title: Spot the lime

Maintenance work on Anastasia is nearing completion.  We have had heavy rain for a couple of days, but nothing leaked!
 
Andrea spent many hours painting Anastasia on the new sail bag, but we think it was worth the effort.

Meanwhile, Andrea went to the supermarket and bought an orange, a lemon and a lime.

We want a slice of lime in our cocktail, so just we just need to take the green one, right?
Nope, they are all green.
 
Well the orange must be the one with the orange flesh, right?

We took a few days in a rental car to tour the island again.  We hiked up to the second level of the Concord waterfall, which we had not done before.
