The picture on the header at the top says it all doesn't it? Crystal clear turquoise water, blazing white sand, and the boat resting peacefully at anchor.... I wish I could spend more time daydreaming and putting myself into that image but it's all we can do to get everything done and squared away here in Arizona. We are in our offices glued to our computers processing photos, uploading to various agencies, and otherwise busy tying up all the loose ends that a long trip entails.
Come Feb 19th that will all change. On that lovely day we board a plane and head south to Grenada. After catching glimpses of some of the islands, beaches, and that incredible water from the air, we'll step onto the tarmac and right into a face full of that warm, balmy air that says 'Caribbean' like nothing else. We'll catch a cab to the marina and then Blam!, we'll be right back in the soup when we get to the boat and remember that we still have to pull the old engine and install a new one, all the while living aboard with the boat up on blocks (no fun, trust me). Please let this be the last time I spend days bent over a greasy motor, for a few years anyway, please...
