Cruising Friends and the Nomadic Life

Terry, Tom, Tracy, Wayne, Sabrina, Sarah
After our wonderful time Dominica albeit too short, we set sail for Carriacou.  We decided to sail directly but then got wind that a few cruising friends were in Bequia.

We don't know when we will see these people again so we stopped overnight for a quick reunion full of laughs and hugs.  This is not uncommon in the cruising life.  Generally, nomadic cruisers come together in anchorages, bond quickly, spend time together and then depart on the winds to various points on the compass.

Missing In Action

Paradise Beach Carriacou
Yes, the blog has been quiet.  I said quite not quit.  We have been:  preoccupied, busy, social, without free-strong internet and lazy.  That is my story and I am sticking to it.  However, it doesn't mean I haven't been blogging.  I just haven't been posting.  It actually takes a lot of time to blog...at least for me us.  Blogging for us includes - writing, re-writing, fact checking, add pics (takes strong internet), more re-writes, adding links, getting the post to the editor for editing, debating with editor about content and choice of language, and finally publishing.  Whew!

The last two weeks the writer and editor have been moonlighting as boat yard workers prepping sv Honey Ryder for hurricane season.  It's hard to write at the end of a long day when you can't get all the wax, stainless steel polish, engine oil, boat dirt and such completely off your hands.  I know, I know....boo hoo us.  I am not complaining, just letting you know what we have been up to.  Remember.....it's not all pretty sunsets and drinks with little umbrellas. 

So.....in the near future I will catch you all up.  Please stay tuned.
