Off on the big silver bird
Well it's time to go and pack our shoes and socks for our 04:40 (our time) start in the morning. We leave Port of Spain at 08:00. Arrive in JFK at 13:19, leave at 18:25 - Oh time to look around the airport and arrive in London Heathrow at 07:05 the next day.
This horrendous picture of Bear, is me under instruction producing the "visa" shot very particular list of rules and measurements for Bear's $131 dollar ten year visa to allow him to land in JFK. Mind you this is a grim one of me bopping in the street. Would you let either of us into the country - let alone anyone's home.
Beez Neez is now in the hands of Shiva at KNJ who are going to sort the bow thruster out while we are away. Roger the fabricator is building me a steel shelf for the DVD's in our hanging cupboard and some metal work on the pulpit and arch at the back, so she will at least have men around her, on her and in her, lucky girl.
Just think we could be one of the Chinese workers working on the roof of the new Arts Centre in downtown Port of Spain in the torrential rain that falls every afternoon
At least they got a few hours off to watch the Emancipation Day Parade.
We will be leaving the UK on Tuesday the 15th of September and back aboard the following morning.
A fond farewell to Trinidad for now
ALL IN ALL LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING EVERYONE WE CAN FIT IN TO OUR MAD SCHEDULE - SO FOR NOW TAKE CARE ALL
