It is hard to believe we have been here for over a week, it is a really good place to be, pace of life slow and easy we could get quite settled here. Have been doing some socializing, a place called Shirley Heights on a Sunday where you go for a magnificent view of English and Falmouth Harbours has a steel band from 4 - 8, and then a live group until 10 add a few rum punches and you have the recipe for a good night out! (Have done two Sundays now) A Friday fish fry here in the harbour has music and dancing, complete with Chris's own dance teacher who told him to 'just hold the beat'!
Thomas and Regula have also arrived and have Christian, Regula's brother onboard, and are now tied along side of us so it is a nice gathering. Last night we were at the 'local' in the harbour when there was a lot of noise, ships hooters and people making their way to the waterside it was a couple of brothers who had just arrive after rowing across the Atlantic! 65 days at sea and the first one ashore went down onto his knees and asked his waiting girlfriend to marry him, there wasn't a dry eye on the dock side, (she said yes!)
Jim and Sean are planning their departure for Friday moving North to St Martin, we are also looking at the next moves, still not sure of what we are doing, still looking at ways to get American Visas, all this way not to sail up the coast of the US seems a bit daft, we shall see what we can do.
