cruising, vb, kroozing, working on your boat in exotic locations around the Caribbean....Dudley and Becca
Canon Saga Continues!
Becca
03/12/2010, Where to Send the Cannon?

Tracking had the Canon signed for at OUR house! We're not there. Not until the 22nd. They had two other addresses where my friend and neighbor will receive the FedX package for us! I love the internet! Dudley just procured a new wifi antenna so we can now do all the 'tracking' we need to right here on Altair! Excellent. I'm excessively happy about that!

Who's at our house? Caroleena, my friend and our caretaker of the townhouse, is at a SOLAR convention in JAX, MS today thru the weekend, not in Miami like we woud've have wished!

Martha was pulling into the cul-de-sac at our TH association when I called on Skype, from the boat (ok, so I sound like a broken record). Some man came to the door as Martha is scrounging around the garden to see if FDX hid it! The guy said he signed for the package and has it!

"Is it Will?" I ask. She doesn't know! I describe him, but it's not him.

Martha says, "So who's at your HOME".

I want to know too, but the camera made it inside our home...we'll find out! HeHe!


Canon Drama Continues...

03/09/2010, Canon Repair in Virginia

I got two e-mails from Canon today...one that the repair office received the camera and it will be 10 days at the outside to fix.

The second e-mail was to give me a tracking number because they're finished and shipped it today. The camera was water damaged and they completely replaced it with a new camera!

This is supposed to be water resistant to 10m...33f !!!!

Now what? Start making calls, that's what!


"Hair of the DAWG"

03/07/2010, Roger's Barefoot Beach Bar

We said we would hang out with our buddies to do some snorkeling, then revisit the 'dawg' that bit us all on SV Lucille last night!

We didn't make the snorkeling (we said 'the wind was too strong', but we know better) but we crawled to the table for a short visit on Hog Island @ Roger's Place! No 'jumpin up' or any other kind of dancing tonight!

We bumped into a group of folks on the beach singing "You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille" and the four of us managed the sing along and that was the most ambitious act today! Lucille and Company left on cue.

Thanks Roger for the best bar around (not for us tonight), and Mary, you did it again! Your BBQ meal was superb!

Meet Lucille's Captain, Gary, back there in the orange shirt, and the beautiful woman up front, stage right, is Laura, the Admiral of Lucille.

Dinner ala Laura and Gary
Becca
03/06/2010, Big, colorful, spacious CATAMARAN, LUCILLE!

When we went downtown to the market today, our friends that we haven't seen since Dominica invited us for Fish dinner! You could ballroom dance in the space. These friends really know how to entertain and ooooo sooooo comfortably. Yippee! When we entertain on Altair you get a seat and stay put! Whew! We sail better though, neener, neener, neener!

Hugs to you both!

Farmer's Market!
Becca
03/06/2010, Downtown St. Georges

Another favorite spot is the market downtown! I know I've written about my friends at the Market, Jessie and Diane, and all the wonderful bounty found here... but it's a great place to go with friends, see friends, meet new friends...LIFE IS GOOD!

S/V Lucille, Laura and Gary are here!

03/05/2010, Hog Island, South Coast Grenada

This is supposed to be a sail blog. We aren't doing any sailing, but friends we've met are! Sue and Phil joined us last month, Don and Olga, ...now Laura and Gary are here! We met Laura and Gary in The Saints, just below Guadeloupe last year! It's so cool to stay in touch with our new friends and even better to reconnect. They are so cool too! That beautiful person in center on Dudley's right is Laura and her wild man hubby, Gary in the foreground.

Maybe we'll go soon!

USA friends were supposed to come visit us here in Grenada...but that hasn't stopped us from exploring the south coast and connecting with friends we meet cruising and the locals we meet too!
