Scuppers and Judy enjoying a coffee and a nap

For the 4th of July celebration we went up the Wando River and into Nowell Creek for an overnight anchor out and first sail. It felt very much like being in the California Delta, warm, sunny and plenty of happy folks buzzing by waterskiing all day long – at nightfall only 2 sailboats were anchored to enjoy the fireworks.
I was wondering if I should post a picture of morning coffee in the Creek or another picture taken a few days earlier at St. Barts Docks. The other picture had a few more folks in it and was taken last Friday when we had 9 people on board Tivoli in the afternoon simultaneously.
• Guy 1 below fitting interior cushions.
• Guy 2 below assisting fitting interior cushions.
• Guy 3 in the cockpit fitting canvas dodger and bimini
• Guy 4 in the cockpit assisting fitting dodger and bimini
• Guy 5 in the port aft lazarette changing a A/C circuit board
• Guy 6 at the starboard aft corner drilling a hole for a hose
• Guy 7 assisting the driller
• Guy 8 in the forward cabin pulling a cable for the radar
• Guy 9 on deck drilling a hole in the mast for a fitting

Judy, Scuppers and I were on the dock as there was obviously no place left for us aboard,

We have today been here for 2 weeks and are getting almost done with just 26 items on the punch list this morning – about 10 got knocked out today and only a few added. We are planning on leaving over the coming week end to head North, weather permitting. We won’t be complete done as we are missing some parts from France, like the refrigerator and a big window that has a crack in it – we will make do with the freezer, a portable electric icebox and some temporary caulking.
We are also getting ready for the second tropical storm since arriving. Danny came last week with a decent amount of rain, now we are waiting for Elsa tomorrow, promising wind and rain. It is hot and muggy today, but the St. Barts folks doing last projects just left and we are down below wit the A/C running ( actually Judy is in the aft head with a fresh water hose flushing all the drains ).
We have had some social activities while here. There is a cocktail party at the docks Tuesdays and Friday that we have participated in, meeting a few cruisers – RYC members Marlene and Brian Lewis passed by in their powerboat a few days ago for a dinner at the Charleston YC and we got invited to a ‘social’ with fellow Beneteau owners Chris and Geep. And we hosted our first lunch some days ago for our friends Alisa and Pete Liggett driving down from Columbia.

About:
On September 11, 2010 we cast off the dock lines from our home port of Richmond Yacht Club, California with an agenda of a multi year cruise. Season 1 took us down the coast of Mexico and we ended the season in Bahia del Sol, El Salvador. [...]
Extra:
TIVOLI is a 1994 Beneteau 42s7. Once upon a time she was a fairly competitive race boat, now - in her old age - she is content being weighed down with a lot of cruising stuff. We raised the waterline twice before leaving Richmond Yacht Club to compensate for the anchors, chain, water maker, extra [...]
