It’s time to get serious…company’s coming

After a really lovely dinner Sunday night aboard OJ with Frank & Denise, and Charles & Leslie…we all left Francis Bay on Monday to other parts. We headed off to Crown Bay Marina, where we proceeded to check off our punch list… Fill water tanks…do laundry (Yes, actually DO it at the very close, clean and reasonably priced Laundromat) and then do our reconnaissance shopping….its an adventure, seriously. One part of this lifestyle that you need to take in stride is the fact that except limited amounts of local produce, which vary widely by island, everything else is shipped in via container (read expensive), or smaller air shipments (read VERY expensive). And it is all dependent upon what makes the container deadline, wherever it is coming from. So, something on the shelves last week, may not be there this…and you may actually not see it again for weeks, if not months. Like I said…shopping is an adventure, and menu plans need to be flexible!
Today…it’s cleaning, organizing and actual shopping…and visiting as some other friends have arrived here, we think! And tomorrow… The Neighbors!
