We have settled back into the ‘day camp’ atmosphere of Grenada and at times it feels like we have never left. We pulled into Port Louis Marina for a few days for an electrical repair when a leaky shaft seal developed so our marina stay was extended for a week. Whilst the work was being done we were happy to get the report from below that the bottom paint still has another year of life so our anticipated haul out this year has been crossed off the list. It was great to be based in St. George’s to provision and get all of our errands done. Unfortunately the soggy weather meant we didn’t take advantage of the pool but we certainly enjoyed the lovely showers!
With all systems go we made our way to Mount Hartman Bay on a day when the seas were calm(er) so the beat to windward wasn’t too bad. It is a great anchorage with plenty of easily accessed activities…. going for groceries is a bit more of a challenge but we aren’t starving.
We have settled into our weekly routine with yoga 3 mornings a week, noodling (water aerobics) on the other days and of course hashing on Saturday and volleyball Tuesday. Add to this the odd pizza night, potluck, jazz night, hiking day and you can understand why life in Grenada often requires a day timer. Boat chores and maintenance fit in between the social activities so our days are full. Catching up with fellow cruisers and hearing tales of their season has been fabulous.
We looking forward to welcoming Teresa aboard in a week and depending on weather may make a sail up to Carriacou….
