Well, we finally made it! We had a peaceful 24 hour sail from Martinique to Grenada, past St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Steady trade winds to start with, which then dwindled to motor sailing past St. Vincent.

Grenada is lovely. And so nice to finally have a day with nothing to do, nothing that urgently needed fixing, and no place we had to sail to!

We strolled ashore and met some other sailors. Amazingly we met one couple, Hendrick and Mariola who were not just from Kelowna, but were actually friends with Ceu’s sister!!! We had heard about them prior to setting out, but what a coincidence to meet them in the marina in St. George’s, Grenada.

And since it was Hendrick’s birthday, we were invited to his birthday party that evening.

We also met with Colin, our erstwhile instructor from our trip to Antigua in April ’09. I was just reading his email that said he was anchored in St. George’s bay, so I stepped out the back to have a look – and there he was waving at us! Good to catch up with him.

Washing Day!

Well, I need to go to LA for a brainstorming session with Bob Proctor (of The Secret fame) on Friday, so we have found ourselves a nice little marina in which we can leave our boat safely. However, it does have to be ‘hurricanized’, which means removing all sails, biminis etc. This is quite a big job, so since we have to do all that, we figured we might as well go back to Canada for a couple of months and return once the hurricane season is finished (beginning of October, basically).

In the meantime, now that we are ‘of leisure’, and have a good internet connection, I can do some work on a new sales page for In between swimming, of course!
