27 April 2012 | Antigua Airport
Here is a picture of Great Habit in her summer home sporting a caribbean look already (those are her anchor rodes and chain you are seeing - we say she now has dredlocks and goate!!)

Well we are on our way with a good start to the morning. Our biggest fear was how our bags would be dealt with by Liat and I am happy to say we got through our first airline with only having to pay extra for our overweight bag. We had visions of having to take things out of them and having to dump them somewhere but they let us through.

We are enroute to Barbadoes and will fly Air Canada to TO from there leaving around 3. Then to Thunder Bay around midnight.

Looking forward to being back in Canada. Will likely send a few more emails and keep up the blog for a bit longer so hang with us in if it interests you.
