Work and Play in Trinidad

A few of the cruisers at the Wheelhouse swordfish night
It hasn't been all work and no play.  We have manged to do a little bit of exploring and socializing along with boat work. 
Neal Peterson
Evening with South African Around the World sailor  Neal Petersen - "No Barriers"" is his book.

Port of Spain trip with Nancy of s/v Fawkes as our guide -  Custom swim suits, fabric stores, notions, home stores, etc....
The Textile King -Jimmy Aboud's fabric store

World Cup Futbol with English, German, and Netherlands cruisers as well as locals.
Carving the swordfish

Grill is ready for the swordfish
The food - oh the food!  Really good and really cheap.  Roti Hut, Doubles, Buss Up, Ladies selling lunch from their tent outside Powerboats Boat Yard (they don't have a name for their booth/tent), swordfish night, bake shark night, grill out by the pool, etc.....
Paul and Tom enjoying the pool
But mainly we just sweat.  With 98 degrees, 120% humidity and rain showers most days.....we sweat a lot!  And therefore......daily dips in the pool have become standard for us.
