The dreaded sickness followed us back to Trinidad, we spent February fighting off coughs which were pretty nasty, saw a few people while we began to prepare for our journey North through to Grenada.  Managed to empty the storage shed in preparation of for not returning to Trinidad later this year. 

On March the 3rd we say goodbye to Trinidad and 4th March sees us arrive in Clarkes Court Bay, last here in 2016.  We have a few lunches in Taffy’s, catching up with Ray and Irene, CDrifters, Graham and Joan are here on Karma.  The new Marina is in full swing and already looks crowded with boats in storage for the hurricane season, we share  few fond memories of when we first arrived and CCB was the hub of the cruisers social life....  lots of water under the hull since then.  

We get the sad, sad news that Tim, (Tim & Babs, Sunshine II) has been diagnosed with motor neurone so the boat is up for sale, then the sad news that Susan, (Andrew & Susan, Andromeda) has died, aggressive liver cancer.   Not sure if the news that Lesley has become the father of twins, boy and girl is good news or not!

After nearly 2 months here we sail up to Carriacou where we plan to leave and head West for the ABC Islands.
