One of the things that has fascinated me for years is people, teams, and
interactions, I believe you can evolve and guide people to achieve more, and
work in a community. Well coming back here to this little inlet there are
now about twice as many boats as when we left, many are empty as the crew
have gone back to states etc. We were a couple of weeks ahead of the curve
of people arriving here, and the people who were here or arrived while we
were here we developed a small little community all with a common interest
of boating, and trying to fit in and discover this new country.
We bonded well, and enjoyed the times around the pool in the evenings.
Now we find we are back, there are definitely groups who stick together and
even what I would call loner boats who just do not get on with others (we
have one of these). But as I went to happy hour around the pool tonight, you
could watch how some people mixed, others were not as welcome or just did
not fit in.
Strange because the old group which is the bigger group here are all
friendly and outgoing and we all laugh , talk about challengers and discuss
things and what we can do.
Why would you be on a boat in different country and not want to sit and
discuss, we have all day working on tasks and then we get to inter-action
time and they come to pool but do not mix.
It is an interesting dynamic, and side comments, as we have been away for a
while these new people do not know us (some saw us on the way down through
Mexico, it is hard to miss the boat with the two blond boys), but really we
had not engaged. So they talk to us, and then we hear the otherside, nothing
bad but just interesting.
Tracy continued going through the boat washing and cleaning cupboards etc,
and repacking. I cleaned the watermaker and reinstalled taking out of it's
pickled state, I found the raw water inlet choked with bark and wood, so
Will look at using dock water as the feed as it does not have chlorine in it
will save on filters and give clean water independent of tide.
So our little community grows and evolves.
