The Grass Has Grown a Bit
25 October 2017 | St Kitts Marine Works
After a very disturbing/distressing summer in both the US and the Caribbean we are back onboard Leela in a fairly strange state of mind. For the first time we have rented out our house and committed to spending at least a year, probably more, onboard Leela or, at least, adrift in some form or the other.
It feels a bit weird at the moment - more unsettling than exciting - but that may just be the tiredness talking after a frenetic few weeks in Europe and then back home dashing around and eating and drinking too much.... Anyway, we have a couple of weeks of hard graft getting Leela ready to set sail again and then we will make a short-term plan and go from there.
We need to go up to St. Martin first to get some inspections done for the insurance then I think we are likely to blast down to Martinique to meet up with friends and chill out for a while. We have talked a big game about sailing to Australia and we are still excited about that idea. What we are not sure about is whether we can get ready in time to head out this year. Stay tuned......
