Altair's Cruz Nuz
cruising, vb, kroozing, working on your boat in exotic locations around the Caribbean....Dudley and Becca
Ohhhh it's nice to be home!
03/28/2010, Townhouse in Miami!

We've been home for nine days and it's been jam packed with eye doctors, documentation papers, new RAM mike, replacement solar showers, registration documents, ebay for new sewing machine to do the canvas work, replacement camera, new boat cards, E-Pirb renewal, US Customs sticker, new Dell battery, vitamin refills and the list goes on!!!

It's pretty amazing to have running water...not foot pumps. We have 3 bathrooms and don't have to squeeze into and wait for the only head on board our wee little sloop. We have a dishwasher, an oven and four burners! The fridge is huge and we've even got an ice maker that we turned off because we aren't used to having ice unless we jump in the dink and head to the nearest marina to purchase it! We are now seeing the benefit of our itty bitty "Engle" and the long trips to the market which is keeping us fit! Being in the land of plenty takes a lot of discipline to refrain from processed food. I think we've gained wait because we're WEAK!!! The fresh food we get at the Caribbean farmer's markets are plentiful and ooooooh so fantastic and HEALTHY!

We have a vehicle right outside our front door and don't have to jump in the dink to head to the dock nearest a bus. We actually miss that! It also adds to the healthy routine.

We still have lots to do, friends and family to hug, and we love the activity. Stay tuned!

Family is First Priority...
03/28/2010, West Palm Beach

We have so much to do in the short time we are home...but Family if first! Our son Doug and his wife (pictured here with Dudley) are our lifeline while we are away!

We miss them soooooo muchly!


Caroleena's B-Day Presents!
03/24/2010, Home in Miami...

What a surprise! My best friend who is taking care of our home while we are on this journey left me a gorgeous bouquet of my favorite flowers! She stacked the table full of birthday, a musical card and a huge cake too! I will pay her back for the latter...we ate the whole thing!

I'm sad to say that I cannot find those pics, nor a bunch of others either and I'm blaming it on Windows 7! Never operator error!


My Birthday Continued!
03/24/2010, Miami

None of us are youngsters anymore so you can imagine how hard we laughed when I got this from Loni! I'm definitely going to wear it with all the barefootin' on this journey aboard Altair.

Dudley, Jim and Loni gave me a wonderful birthday!


My Birthday @ Home
Becca the Birthday Girl...ugh Woooman!
03/24/2010, Miami, Florida

To quote Lucille Ball: "The secret to staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly and lie about your age"! Yessssss!

It was a great sweetheart, Dudley, our good friend Jim and his better half Loni took me to my FAV restaurant in Miami, Captain's Tavern. I'm 24 this year!


Going Home!
03/22/2010, Home Sweet Home!!!

Raymond has been our guide and our taxi driver for the 8 months we've been in Grenada! We didn't call him yesterday to remind him to take us to the airport and he forgot us! Poor guy...felt so bad, but we made it!

Jim, Dudley's Best friend, was waiting for us in Miami and it was freezing! Supposedly the winter in South Florida was horrendous with a few frosts thrown in this year! Glad we missed that!
