Rain and wind
The second time launching Mile High Dream was a success. The hole had been plugged by copious amounts of superman strength epoxy. As I float away from the dock, the man working on my boat calls out "Don't run into anything or you will be back getting it fixed again."
That was not really what I wanted to hear. Last year I had not run aground but the year before it had happened way too many times.
Time to get down to cleaning, organizing, fixing toilets and other equally enjoyable projects.
My first guest arrived the day before Thanksgiving. Fortunately for me she is an avid sailor, organizer and has sailed with me twice before. She will be a major asset if getting Mile High Dream ready for this years season.
All work and no play makes for a very dull time. It is hard not to play on Grenada. In fact it is so hard not to play that getting all of the projects done is going to be difficult. Thanksgiving is just another day here in Paradise so we skipped the Turkey and all of it's fixing to join a wonderful women who works at the University. The three of us, Greg and the girls headed out on some island adventures starting with a hike. The planned hike was to a waterfall where we could take a swim. Hiking was much shorter than I remembered and we arrived just a few minutes after we left the car. The waterfall swimming hole was filled with young boys, splashing, jumping, yelling, playing and just being boys. We enjoyed their antics but decided not to join them. Besides that it started to rain.
Plan B. If it is gong to rain and we are going to get wet, lets go river tubing. Bouncing down the stream in between rocks and over rapids we laughed for an hour straight. What fun.
Friday we attended a grand opening of the restaurant at Clarks Court. There was was a beer tent that ran out of beer and various food vendors. The big problem was that the restaurant had failed to open for their own grand opening. The bottom line, it was just an excuse to party and dance. Swaying to music in a conga line and then following the locals in some of group dancing provided for a spectacular time.
The weather is not as good as we would like and we are having such a fun time, we have decided to make a slight change. Instead of going to St. Vincent, we are just going to sail up to the Tobago cays and back. That way I get to spend more time with friends in Grenada instead of hanging out in St. Vincent for 8 days by myself.
Tomorrow is the first day we will raise the sails and start this years actual journey. Today will be a chance to shop at the market and attend another hash. There are just too many fun things to do in Grenada.
Wifi and computers are not liking Grenada so Blogs may be absent for a while.

About: Greg has been sailing since he was 21. I grew up in North Dakota and started taking advantage of the constant winds. After selling my bicycle store in 2006 we got more serious about living our dream on a sailboat. Greg and his wife purchased Mile High Dream in 2013.

Greg and Mary had owned Nada Mas, a 23' South Coast, on Lake Dillon in Colorado for 33 years. We chartered in the Caribbean and Calif. numerous times. We were excited to begin our dream. While waiting for a weather window in the Truks and Caicos, Mary died unexpectedly Jan. 6 2015 after a [...]
