Three little ducks
19 March 2011 | Petit Anse D'Arlet, Martinique
Following an e mail from Samba, we relocated them and headed North t ojoin them again. I felt very proud as I sailed her round, putting genoa out and then back in again, finding a spot to anchor and then calling Mark out from where we was cooking dinner so he could drop the anchor! Just as I was taking in the sail, we had a radio call from Mel to say they had spotted us and then Eol as well. So, despite being in 2 different locations overnight, the two Nautitechs came swimming back to mother duck. Loads of excellent snorkelling here. The water is so clear, we could actually see starfish on the bottom of the seabed as we went to shore in the dinghy. A sorty out day on Saturday, putting winter woollies away and locating the replacement bottles of factor 50. Pete from Samba attempted to find our photos that have mysteriously disappeared whilst being transferred from camera to computer. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to save them and so we have no photos from the moment Alan left us. How significant! I am especially disappointed that we don't have photos of the manicou or the BBQ :-(
Just so you don't think I am painting a pretty picture all the time, I'll admit that this weekend I have had cabin fever BIG TIME!! So, today, Mel, Clem and I are heading off for a walk whilst the boys take charge of the kids as it turns out Mel is feeling the same way! I am sure that I will come back to the boat with a renewed energy to clean up the tip that has occurred as a result of us reorganising. AAAAGHH!!
