Mike and I arrived back in Trinidad yesterday after a fleeting visit to London. We are both excited to be back in the Caribbean and very grateful for the wonderful hospitality of the "South African optometrists" that we met earlier in the year. We were picked up at the aiport and have been given a car and a home for the weekend - which has made things amazingly easy. Indigo is on the hard at Peakes in Chagauramas - see attached pic. Today we got started on the big clean up, but there is still a lot of scrubing to be done. The decks are covered with a thick layer of "pollution" - which is proving quite hard to remove. Mike will start with the anti-fouling paint job tomorrow, wearing his fancy new mask, which should protect him from the rather nasty fumes - look forward to some amusing photo's!  I am sorting our the inside and making lists of provisions we need.  We are still adjusting to the heat and humidity - and now have to remember things like ..staying hydrated (not with beer!), applying sunscreen (regularly due to endless sweating) and using insect repellent (they start swarming at sunset). ..tough life!   Lots of love, Lynn & Mike
