The Matsuzawa's return to Japan

06 April 2007 | Saba Rock
It was a sad day. Hideko's Mom and Dad had been with us for two weeks and it was time to say goodbye. Their flight out of Beef Island departed around noon so after a light breakfast we got them ready to go.

We took a dinghy ride over to the Bitterend and waited for the North Sound Express. Hideko went with Atsuo San and Yukiko San to help them get to the Air Port which is only a short walk from the ferry dock in Trellis Bay Tortola.

After watching them go I motored back to Swingin' on a Star where Roq was minding things. I got aboard and began to rumage around for lunch when I heard Kelp Fiction hailing us. Fred and his friend Pete from Canada had picked up the mooring right next to us.

Fred had a day off so we all went out to the reef at the edge of Eustaia Sound and snorkeled around a bit. Afterwords we caught up over a beer.

Hideko showed up in the afternoon on a launch from the Bitter End. I had somehow missed her hail on the VHF. When she got back I was drinking beer with Pete and Fred. That was a bust. Hideko forgave me though because she's the best.

As the stars came later that night we talked about all of the great times we had with all of our parents. This will have to be the first of many such visits.
