Rain, Rain go away

Rain, Rain, Rain - we had a FULL day of rain and never left the boat. However, the cockpit was scoured and Dale got some projects done too. Plus, books were read and maybe even a nap of 2 happened!!

Errands in paradise!

Dale and I ran to the US Supermarket to get provisions while we had a car. We should have brought Keith as everything was in French! We managed to figure it out and stocked up on some necessities.
Later we took Keith to the Airport and said our goodbyes. We spent a bit more time on the Dutch side visiting the marine stores and had to get the car back by 5:30. Another busy day.

Here fishy fishy!

Lisa-hot and sunny

Today we decided to split up. Madeline really wanted to hit the shops in town with me and the rest decided to go snorkeling. Both groups had a very nice day and we met back up about 3:30. We decided to rent a car to visit some of the island and also to get Keith to the airport tomorrow. We drove north from Marigot on "the road". It is no more than 7 miles either way on this island so it didn't take long to get around. As we crossed in to the Dutch side you could actually notice the difference. The Dutch side uses the US dollar and the language is English. We saw a bunch of fast food restaurants and it was a lot more like home than the French side. We found our way to the waterfront in Phillipsburg and found a good restaurant for dinner. Wyatt found a couple of girls to play with so he was happy. Everyone slept well that night after a full day.
