Another beautiful Day…Monday January 20th. hearing the ocean surf. They (Resort) say close the balcony doors when you go to sleep…
Not what I want to do… I feel safe and love to falling asleep and waking up with listening to the waves crushing onto the beach. Kind of miss the rocking to sleep on the “Lady Natalie” though. The ground I walk on is moving to the waves….
Going to be another beautiful day by the beach… thinking of where the Lady Natalie may be sailing to on her next adventure as I watch he drift away to in the Sea…what are the chances I’ll be here again one day I ask myself?
Every Day here is beautiful….
My Last Evening sunset joy and happiness.
I say Thank You to all that made this trip so special and a joy in my Life
We are really enjoying this special coffee every morning. It has not gone unnoticed by me. Thank You Marion and Dave for that special treat.
Our morning views have alwys been so refreshing and peaceful. Today is the first morning though that we are enjoying looking out to the open sea.
We are off to sail across to Carriacou today, a 30 mile sail. So excited to see this. My first time going out in to the open ocean water. Yes we always have land in sight.. but jut not close by..
After we sailed for several hours both the Kapt’n and Marion as well as us noticed that the horizon is starting to not be there anymore. Or lets say not as distinct as sky to water was earlier on, a storm was coming in. And we have still more then half to sail to Carriacou… time to go back and anchor at Halifax Harbor. The weather is turning and we don’t want to head into this storm.
Glad we did turn Lady Natalie around… Because we would not have been able to experience this so romantic island. With totally black sand…
Our anchorage for tonight after turning back from an attempted passage from Grenada to Carriacou. … I can’t wait to show you some of the moments here….
If you had told me I am going to be having a Mona Monkey on my head this trip I would have not believed you.. well guess again.
It is something so special to have had this amazing visit her at Grand Etang National Rainforest. I am so thankful to have had this totally unexpected joy in my life. Meeting a Mona Monkey… My mom will be so envious.
Look at us all, who doesn’t sometimes love to monkey around and have fun. Cutty our tour guide is able to call them out of the jungle they even steel the food out of his pockets.
The mona monkey was transported to the island aboard slave ships headed to the New World during the 18th century. Its tail and legs are black and the face is blue-grey with a dark stripe across the face. The mona monkey carries food in cheek pouche. An Old World monkey that comes from western Africa between Ghana and Cameroon.
I promised you this is going to be fun… From Fort Frederick we continued on to the Annandale Waterfalls.
Look at how lush and green everything is here. Totally love this.
Ok anyone going in the water? Yesss leave it up to me guys…. I am the only one going in, Really! … No problem Let’s jump. Now I wish I would have gone from the top. Their I could have just jumped down, with no running out…
The Sunset coming over the hills with moon still right in sight too. It’s Saturday morning Jan. 11th. 2020 now… coffee being served. So special.
Today is another beautiful day.. morning sunrise with rooster waking us up still at Clarke’s Court Boatyard and Marina. Today we are having our 3rd crew member Clinton arrive in later afternoon too. Annabelle is going scuba diving and Dave, Marion and I are going to walk over to Hog Island.
The walk there from the marina is about 60 minutes or more. Well maybe even faster except I took lots of pictures as you may know… the views of the bay and the forest is so lush and a bit thorny here and there. Cactus and Termite nest here and there.
Look at this perfect spot on Hog Island….So picture perfect. And the water as clear as it can be, Turquoise! I could not resist going swimming looking for shells in the water. Diving to see the joy of clear water and sand under water…
The Roger’s Barefoot Beach Bar is a must visit opens usually at 4 pm. bring cash.. with hammocks all over the area.. one definitely could dream away here. Look at what Sean put together for me.. he was so proud to make the earrings from part of the necklace he made for me. Special treasure in my eyes. Thank You
Back in time for welcoming Clinton our 3rd crew… our Crew is now complete. Kapt’n Dave, Marion, Annabelle, Clinton and myself.
First night sleeping ever on a sailboat. Very different for sure. I heard lots of swish, wosh, swish, wosh…waves. Then some sheets here and there knocking on the mast I think… Now here is the best part… The Rooster. Totally one sound to not forget. He was every where we went. Smiles… just like they have dogs rooming free with no owner ever in sight.
Fresh ground coffee for everyone to enjoy in cockpit. With brand new cushions sewn by Marion. You did a fantastic job even added pipping.
Looks like we have a job to do before the rest of the crew gets here.
Put the mainsail back on the boom. It needed some repair and now it’s back on the deck to but up again… only thing is it is getting windy… so someone had to hold it down as Dave and Marion figured out the best way to do this. Of course with my help.. I would not want it any other way! Making sure it does not lift up before it is ready to sailllll….lol
Ok so what do you think we need now on the sailboat for the week we are here on board? Food and wine. Oh my gosh …Off we go on a grocery bus run. What a hoot! We had 13 people on buss plus driver. ANDDDD ALLL THE FOOOOOOD and drinks and whatever everyone needed to bring back. A new COB for our Lady too. All fit into the bus. You should have seen us all …LOL we all where squished like sardines.
Our second crew has arrived… Annabelle. A little tired after a long flight here.
Ok now bring all the items we collected back with dinghy to our “Lady Natalie. Ohhh how funny this is it all has to go into fridge somehow. Marion I could not believe what you all stuffed in there.
So special to experience a foll moon on the Island of Grenada. We planed to go to Hogs Island for the Full Moon Party. But with the wind being stronger and in a dinghy. We decided to head over to Adrift Restaurant And Bar right here at Clarke’s Court Boatyard & Marina
To Enjoy another great evening of happiness, laughter, smiles, food, drinks, dancing and listening to music… with the full moon so bright in the sky. Only thing is I was playing around taking pictures with a new camera…so my pictures came out a bit fuzzy. Recommend to play around with new items at home before going on a trip.
