Our Plan to
Sadly, time has come to prepare to
leave Jolly Harbour.
This meant Bear togged up to face the
forest below with his trusty scraper. I asked him to look up - then
smile, I think the first picture was better. Meanwhile household chores for me washing, hoovering and
Each time Bear came out of the water
he made thousands of creatures homeless, I hosed them off of him back into the
deep, fish were having a frenzy feeding party. Compressor
out to refill for the next crack at the forest. I'm sure I know what I'm doing, but I will just have a little look
at the manual, Yes Dear.
Last night here and the very day we
set sail three hundred and sixty five days ago we went for a steak after a few
cocktails in 'Happy Hour', Couldn't make them on board
for that you know. Better have another. Yes Dear. Took the first
photo of the walkway back to the girl, the girl herself waiting patiently for her next round of
at-venture and us all cheesy grins.
Plan is to leave here at midday to
anchor off. Spend the afternoon on the beach and then have our customary meal of
chilli con carne and rice, washed down with a bottle of Fizz. As today is the
6th of June we have been away a calendar year, Bear splashed out a bit and
bought us a Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut, very much looking forward to that.
Tomorrow we leap into action and go:
From Jolly Harbour Marina we plan to
anchor off Deshaies, Guadeloupe for the night.
Make peace with The Isles de Saintes
two nights at anchor. Bear wants to buy two of their legendary stainless steel
scrapers, he wore the edge of ours sorting out the forest.
Pass back through Portsmouth
anchoring for one night and Roseau for a couple of nights.
Fort de France in Martinique for two
Rodney Bay, St Lucia for supplies,
one night and an overnight stop at Soufriere.
Slip in to Bequia and explore for
Hillsborough in Curacao for two
Prickly Bay in Grenada for nine
nights. Leaving here for an overnight sail on July the 11th.
And finally in to Chaguaramus,
Trinidad on the 12th.
Approximately 435 timings depend
much on weather, wind and sea.
ALL IN ALL BUSY LITTLE BEEZ,
WE ALL CAN'T HELP GRINNING.
