Dave and Louise arrived on Wednesday but since then it has rained almost constantly!
We are still in Rodney Bay Marina and managed to get a dry hour yesterday at the Boardwalk Bar for their first Caribbean Rum Punch.
Our dinghy floor repair didn’t hold, despite using the manufacturer’s patch and glue. Fortunately there is an Avon centre here and the floor is currently with them for a professional fix. We will see if it holds. Otherwise we may have to shell out for a hard bottom dinghy, which most people have here.
We are checking the weather as we hoped to go to Martinique this afternoon but it would be good to have the dinghy intact beforehand. Sunday also looks good to go north and as Dave and Louise are with us for 6 weeks, we have plenty of time. They haven’t sailed since last summer so the first trip would be better as a smooth one.
Rob just downloaded some photos from his camera, so including those although they should have been in earlier posts when Steve was here.
The new fruit and vegetable boat is looking amazing, with a new thatched roof and beautifully laid out produce. Smokie (or could be Smokey) has done a great job.
So, for now we are chilling out, dodging the rain and deciding what to do next!
