I have been in St Lucia for 3 weeks now, first week acclimatising not
least to each other as I hadn’t seen Nick since October! Second week
cleaning the boat – it has only has men on for the last 3 months!!
The plan is to stay here for another couple of weeks as it is a pretty
cheap mooring (tied up to a buoy in the marina rather than tied to the
dock) with easy access to water, fuel and showers!
We did have to take the boat to the dock to fill up with water last
week and I didn’t like it at all. Panicked about what I would do if
Nick fell off! The original plan was for me to come out whilst Max was
still here so I could learn the ropes with him about. Not to be, as
thwarted by mortgage providers delaying things too long. I wanted to
catsit Mabel whilst Claudia and Benj had a fab trip to India just
after Christmas so not enough time to get to boat and back between the
two. So I now am learning how to do stuff in preparation for moving
slowly north over the next few months. Need to be out of Caribbean by
May at latest – hurricane season…………………..
40⁰C and sunny with lovely breeze – I hear it has been snowing there!
