So here we are in St. Lucia again. We really like it here and will stop when ever we are in the area. We came in a got a slip for a few days to do some work on the boat. We equalized our batteries with the shore power here and gave the boat a good washing down. Once we get settled in down at Grenada we probably won't have another chance to be at a dock for several month. Some of the work can only be accomplished when you have access to electric and water. The boat is looking good and we should be in good shape till we haul out sometime this summer to do a bottom job and repaint the boot stripe that is looking a bit tattered.
We spent quite a bit of time here, on St. Lucia, on the way north this last winter. (but you all wouldn't know that since I didn't keep this blog up!!) We had a great Christmas dinner here we about 20 of our friends that we had met in Grenada and along the way. We visited a lot of the local markets and toured some of the island. One of the highlights was zip lining in the rain forest. It was spectacular!! It's a beautiful island and would love to spend more time here but alas hurricane season will soon be upon us and we need to move on down to Grenada for the insurance issues. We'll be in the Grenada, Trinidad, Tabago area till next November. We'll see where we end up from there.
