16 January 2013 | Aruba
PC/Stan
Have enjoyed my stay in Aruba but is time to move on. Met a lady, Roni, in Grenada who wanted to crew with me. She flew down from California and will crew for awhile. Thats good because I lost my autopilot and hesitate to make a long passage alone.

Leaving today for Cartagena which will take three to four days depending on average speed.

Cleaned boat bottom yesterday and general provisioning and cleanup for passage making. Will double reef main and roll in most of jib. may have to lower all of main. Will see.

Aruba was pretty but it is a tourist mecca with cruise ships coming in daily. Even saw a Club Med boat yesterday. It is a fake sailboat with five mast but no sails other than small roller furling staysails. Oh well!

Spent Christmas Eve with my friends friends from Saarina. they sang songs in Dutch and we shared a meal. Sure missed my kids.

You would not believe the fireworks these islanders set off for about two weeks. I was told that the government gave container loads of the fireworks away. On NY Eve there must have been a hundred different locations firing simultaneously. These are all commercial grade monsters too.

Met a lovely lady, Luz Marina, who showed me some of her beautiful island and also took me to a Protestant church service last Sunday. Thank you Luz for sharing with me.

Like i said this is a tourist town so its time to move on.

We did a lot of shopping in this town me and Mary . When women get money it's spending time but I'm a bargain shopper if it's to much I won't buy. I mostly got cover ups and that's like 6 euro . We mostly eat out lunch here and there. We had lunch at Le Mombo and breakfast there also great food and prices are good. We checked in 5/21/15 and checked out 5/25/15. Now headed to the next place.

Tuesday morning started out a the bakery eating before we decided what's up on our agenda for today. At the tourist information center asked about catching a bus to the gardens and zoo. Jardin Botanique flowers and different plants man made water falls. A banana tree with the bananas hanging from them flamingos other birds gift shops and places to eat there also. Axel was leaving work when he asked if we needed a ride to the zoo. Ate lunch when we got there. Many kinds of animals monkeys mostly and birds two cats leopard and a jaguar. Had to take three buses back two girls from school had to help us with our getting back to the boat. They spoke better English than the bus driver who couldn't understand us. It made Stan's day being funny which they didn't understand most of it. They just thought he was the funniest thing they ever heard. But they flowed us to make sure we got to the right place. It is not good being in a place where you can't speak the language.

Got here late Friday 4:30 the waves where six feet high rough all the way here it cost us some time so we came in later instead of early. Ralph and Mary are not staying so there're leaving in the morning. But we are staying to see the volcano. Saturday morning took a taxi our tour guide Tony was very helpful telling us all about the island history and the different people who have came here over the years and saw lots of places that famous people stayed. Jimmy Buffet came here made a song about Montserrat. Saw the top of the Soufriere hills volcano erupted in 1995, destroying the capital and other businesses. Ash is still all over on some places it looks like grey powder on everything. Saw the only cotton machine still being used on this island Luv's Cotton shop. We are anchored in at Little Bay port of Montserrat. Leaving tomorrow .

The carnival was so long my battery on the camera ran down but I was able to get lots of pictures before it did. The costumes were so colorful and lots of feathers you had to stay hydrated cause it was so hot I was standing under some shade and I was still sweating. Vendors walked by with water and drinks so that made it better it carnival started at 1:00 p.m. so the sun brutal but other than the heat the carnival was nice. I was taking the pictures so Stan got to get photograph a lot but as you can see he was having the time of his life. I didn't get in the pictures much it was to hot and muggy I don't normally seat but I did. The weather is cool and windy but at times it is just still and hot....The kids looked so cute in their costumes just dancing away. The theme was Rio. It was so much fun you just wanted shake your booty!!!!

St. Martin is the French side had to check in 4/27/15 dinghy over with Ralph and Mary. Ate breakfast at a French bakery ate lunch at McDonalds the funniest thing here is the bathrooms are joined so ladies you get to see the guys hanging all out. Lol Looked in a lot of shops really pretty bathing suits but to pricey for my taste. Some suits cost up in the hundreds, I did find a shop called Creations and got some tees. I liked the Betty Boop shop had to get a picture of that cause that's my girl.. I even found a shop with Betty stuff got some shirts and shorts. We had to get water and fuel stocked up on my cokes I realized I am hooked can't do without them it's the caffein. We've been having problems with the dingy motor. If it not one thing it's another projects all the time fixin stuff!!!
