Christmas Trinidad 4

We had a pleasant meal at the Crews Inn Restaurant 30th December, in the company of Susan and Andrew Andromeda, only need to remember that Blackened Grouper on the Menu actually equates to Breaded Tilapia on the plate.  They insist this is, ‘Crews Inn Grouper’, so I now consider myself educated!

On the 1st January 2014, We went ashore to the GAM, the which is the AGM of the Seven Seas Cruising Association for an informal talk and pot luck, also a very interesting talk with slides on Guyana, presented by Willie and Mark Haskins, Liahona, (you may remember we were supposed to be there by now!)

2nd January Maris and I have our final swim together and then sail back to Chaguaramus, in time to see a tanker being launched from the giant dry dock, where Maris departs early afternoon for her evening flight to Gatwick and then Edinburgh.  It has been a lovely Christmas and Maris has been great help to me, and as always a great guest.
