I am back on the boat and trying to get back to our “normal” cruising life. I still feel the pain of my parent’s situation, but really cannot do anything to improve it. They both get excellent care. The happy note is that we are back in the company of Barb and Chuck on the boat Tusen Takk II. We have travelled with Barb and Chuck off and on for several years and enjoy their company.
A few days ago we (Arctic Tern, Tusen Takk and Suzi and Mike from the catamaran Awakening) free dove for conch and for 6 of us we picked up our two conch per person. Hunter and Barb cleaned the 12 conch and I turned 7 conch into a tender curried conch, or as we know it from Trinidad and Grenada- curried lambi. The next day I made a fresh conch salad with lots of lime, cilantro and fresh vegetables.
