We're back in the water! What a treat! After too many days on the hard (too hot! too many mosquitoes!), we really appreciate feeling the water under our hull again. Even sleeping on a boat that doesn't rock felt too weird. We had to wait for a new raw water pump that needed replacing and it got … Continue reading Splash!
It's not much fun to live on a boat when it's out of the water ... So after school I took the kids for a swim in a nearby pool to cool down. They had a great afternoon. We are waiting for one more part to pick up tomorrow and then we can reassemble and … Continue reading Pooltime
After a relaxing weekend it is back to work and back to school today. We are still on the hard working our way through our list of repairs and maintenance jobs. Yesterday was a fun day.

We're hoping to get all the work done in a week or so and can't wait to be back in the … Continue reading Out of the water

Yesterday was Independence Day so pretty much everything was closed and there were celebrations everywhere. We plan to haul the boat out of the water here to get … Continue reading Prickly Bay, Grenada
After a few more stops in Union island and Petit St Vincent we are off to Grenada. We checked out of St Vincent and the Grenadines and have a full day sailing ahead of us. It's been a while but there's a lovely breeze and we even have the fishing line out hoping to catch … Continue reading Petit St Vincent

Tobago cays has been one of the highlights of our trip so far! This group of small deserted islands is protected from the sea by a large horseshoe shaped reef. The turquoise water and abundant marine life is stunning. We saw ray fish, turtles, crazy coloured fishes and beautiful corals. After Mustique we also stopped … Continue reading Tobago cays
