20 April 2011 | Prickly Bay, Grenada
I didn't know flights existed at 4am, but they do and so at 5.30am, Whit arrived at Grenada to join our crew from the US. We had agreed that I would meet him at 7am at de Big Fish, but I was tracking his flight on the internet and it said he hadn't left, so I just sat tight until I saw he was online. Receiving a reply to my suggestion that he must be still in Trinidad, that no, he was waiting at de Big Fish sent us into a flurry of action and within the hour he was settled onto our boat and enjoying a swim off the back!
Mark worked hard on the rudder all day, so Whit and I headed off to Grande Anse beach where Lochy met Malik, visiting his aunt from the US. The kids had forgotten their flipflops again, which is a regular occurance. This only created a problem when the ground was too hot for them to walk and then they weren't allowed in the supermarket. We did however, manage to buy crepe paper for their Easter bonnets, so once back at the boat, they got cracking with them. early night for all in the very hot boat - please, wind, come back,we really need you!!
