A long gap in the blog--reflecting a long stay in St Lucia!!
Alan and Nigel left us on 18 December to fly back to chilly UK. Michael also returned to the UK for Christmas, arriving back in St Lucia on the 29th. Ger and Michele toughed it out on the boat--eating, drinking and swimming!! Christmas on the beach. And rejoined by Michael it was New Year on the beach!!
By 2 January it was time to see if we could still remember how to sail--so we left Rodney Bay and spent a night moored in Marigot Bay followed by 3 glorious days moored between the Pitons in the south of the island--spectacular views etc and difficult to imagine a more awesome anchorage. A bit of snorkelling, dinghy ashore for walks/food/beach/etc and the rest just chilling on the boat.
Back to Rodney Bay on 6th--to let Michele leave on 8th--and Ger and I plan to sail to Martinique on 9th to start our real Caribbean odyssey. Whoopee!!
