Even with Ernesto gone & history (for us), we have unsettled weather with another "tropical wave" coming through the area. We had clouds & rain all day today. Tomorrow should be better except for the wind. So it looks like we're here until Thursday morning - at which point we're planning on going straight thru to Grenada (about 180 miles). That means bypassing St Lucia, St Vincent & The Grenedines and sailing for 24 - 30 hours (nothing we haven';t done before).

Our friends from SeaUs (Ryan & Olivia) hung out with us yesterday (Mon). Olivia cut Margi's hair (it was getting a bit long & hot) - see the pic for the final result (there's another pic in the "Friends" picture gallery).

Vessel Name: Inspiration
Vessel Make/Model: PDQ 36 LRC
Hailing Port: Milwaukee, WI
Crew: Gary Lehnertz / Margi Lehnertz
About: Margi has wrapped up her tax returns and has now joined the boat. (Brad is back in Alaska - until next winter. Brad has lived in Alaska for the past 30+ years. He's now wintering in south Florida and is assisting on the trip to the eastern Caribbean.)
Extra:
We are taking my sailboat cruising through the Bahamas, then to the Virgin Islands followed by the eastern Caribbean (Leeward & Windward Islands). With the late start we go leaving George Town, we are working our way East & South. We will probably skip the Virgin Islands & the Leeward islands [...]
