Zahara: The story so far......
Sat 22 May 2010 16:37
Hi all, |
well, thought it a good time to update the blog, though with the lack of entries over the last few months , it may well be that nobody reads it anymore!
I've had a very enjoyable few weeks looking after my 'guests'. I've certainly enjoyed trying to show them the delights of sailing in the Caribbean and I think that they have all gone home with a good suntan and a big smile. Certainly, if you don't enjoy sailing (or just living on a boat) here, you won't anywhere!
we visited some great places, notably Bequia and Tobago Cays in the Grenadines and Marigot bay and The Pitons in St Lucia and we've had some great nights out... My birthday in Bequia which Chris, Becky and the fresh Lobster made very special and the Friday night 'Jump up' in Gros Ilet which Pete and Jenny enjoyed. With Dee, every moment was special.....
I feel like a break now so I'll chill out here in Marigot bay for the next two months before returning to UK until the end of October. Then It's back to Rodney bay to lift the boat out and get her ready for another season in the Caribbean.
I reckon I've accomplished everything I set out to do since having this daft idea about sailing across 'the Pond' It's difficult to think that it was only just over a year ago that I started to get the boat ready for 'the ARC'. Since then I've sailed nearly 5,000 nm, seen some wondeful things and met some wonderful people. I never really thought what I would do once I got here but It's a lovely place to live, especially on a boat. It's going to be very hard to leave but that's a long way down the road. Zahara will certainly be out here for another year or so.
What next? Watch this space.........
I'll add some pics as soon as I can.......
