On the move again
The new crew's have arrived. Sue and Gary whom I met last summer in Summit county arrived with some fanfare on Friday. The flights were fine but the taxi drivers are like horses at the end of the ride. Headed straight for the barn or someplace that is familiar and safe. Our (Mile High Dream and Susann's) anchorage is not where most people anchor. It is away from busy towns and tourists so the cab driver's ignored their request and drove them to the tourist spots. Fortunately the tourist spot was not too far away and they were able to ask a bilingual women to get the taxi to the right place. Chris and Colleen, Lew's new crew were not so lucky. Their taxi driver took them to the cruise ship dock which is totally on the other side of the bay. They were able to grab a ferry back to our side and then a short taxi ride. After a two and one half hour ordeal they were sitting with us having the first of their rum punches.
This morning we will pull up anchor from our quiet little hideaway and sail north to St. Pierre. This should be a nice three hour sail. We always say should be since Mother Nature does not always adhere to the weather reports.
Martinique is a beautiful lush tropical island and I will miss the wonderful French pastries. My waist line may have a chance to start shrinking again. I am hoping for one last chance to splurge in St Pierre if we arrived before the patisserie closes.
I have not been in the water to swim for a few days so I am looking forward to be back in crystal clear waters. Our current spot is amongst the mangroves with very murky water. Life is full of trade offs and in this case we traded beautiful swimming waters for the calm and peaceful serenity of murky waters. We have all slept well.

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.
Extra:
