I'm Back

The cruise ship the I can see from my balcony window overlooking the bay, is vomiting its cargo like a line of ants piling down the gangplank onto the dock of St. George, Grenada. Right now there is only one ship but there may be more on the way. Forty sailboats are anchored between Grand Anse beach and the town. Mile High Dream is still on the hard waiting for some repairs before it will get to join these lucky sailors already on the water.

I arrived on Tuesday after a too short summer with many changes. Snow was still falling when I arrived back to Colorado in May and started again in October. The short season in between was filed with Bicycling, hiking, camping, sailing, knee surgery and other medical procedures along with me selling my condo. I felt it was time for some changes in my life and some letting go. The original plan was to sell my condo and buy something else with a garage. The first part happened and my condo sold in early October. The second part of finding something to purchase did not so my home is now the boat. Next summer I will review my options and see what I want to do.

Mile High Dream is high and dry on the hard in Spice Island Marina. Well pretty dry. I have someone look after the boat when I’m not here and they always seem to leave a few windows open. It might be to just air out the boat before I get here, I’m not quite sure but it always results with extra water on the floors and other places in the the boat. It just adds a few extra projects for me to tackle before putting the boat in the water. As if I didn’t arrive with a long list already.

There are many happy reunions with old friends and fellow cruisers once I got back and my week has been filled with fun times in addition to the boat prep. Today I’ll work on the boat and then head out to the local “hash” which is a run or walk (definitely a walk for me) out in a remote area of Grenada. I’ve been doing these every Saturday that I can while Im here on the island. Great fun, good exercise, lots of beer, food, and camaraderie. A wonderful reward after boat work.

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.
