Tuesday March 14th St Lucia 2006
We discovered that Fred's plane was diverted to Trinidad without much warning, and were wondering which flight he was going to get once he had got back to Barbados.  Anyway, to cut a long story short, whilst we were prevaricating, we heard a speedboat outside, and it was FRED!   He had been quite enterprising, and asked a taxi to take him to 'a marina', having arrived in St Lucia at 6.30am.   He then commandeered a harbour master's boat and searched the anchorage, (without knowing where we were in the whole of St Lucia...)   He'd had quite an adventure with dinner on the beach in Barbados at the airlines expense last night.
So we have had a great day, not least spent reading the MOST RECENT Sunday papers hot from England.   There has been a motheaten January Observer doing the rounds of yachties, so this is a huge bounty, worth major bargaining power and when we have read every last advert we will trade them on.
Otti's comment,( on seeing Fred newly changed into shorts): 'Look, I haven't seen anyone with sock marks for ages!'
