Tunnel Of Happiness

Worry about what makes you happy….

Don’t worrying about making it big.

Being truthful to Your Heart and Soul.

love yourself for what you are and who you are.

A light will always shine.

Just like the light in this tunnel.

An Eye For An Eye

First Day of Spring March 21st.

So I know we are all going though something no one had to deal with. This Corvid 19 is keeping us all from doing what we love… We have to be in isolation and for many of us this is a big stressful time.

Here is my video of my walk: https://youtu.be/qaYUwBiZSqs

My husband is working from home do to this corvid 19 and at beginning of all this isolation he had strep throat too. So I really had to be staying away from him too. Just don’t want to get any off it…

Hopefully this explains a little why I am going for a drives and isolate myself in truck from time to time.

Just like last Saturday

…. into the country..

As many of you know I just go for a drive in the past to wherever the truck takes me too. So far I only got lost once.

This probably has been my last drive for a while…

Grenada, I’ll Be back One Day

This last morning at the beach was the perfect ending to this amazing trip…

Had this stray dog pop himself down right by my side as I was reading. I thought this was to funny…

Memories and Joy in my life.

I say Thank You to all that made this trip so special and a joy in my Life .

…..Ah Yes already a month passed. It has been so amazing and fun… I am speechless with all I have see and experianced and that in only 23 days.

Do You see what I see?

Beach Day on Grand Anse, Grenada

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

The Royal Clipper in the harbor of St. George, Grenada
Last evening by the Beach.. Grand Anse
Can you see The Royal Clipper in the distant. So beautiful she has I believe 5 Masts if I recall that correctly.

memory and love in my life.

Umbrella, Grand Anse Beach

This was totally something I have never done before… Go to a Restaurant and eat on my own.

I was hungry and was tired of eating on my own for past days. So thought I’ll go check out this “Umbrella’s Beach Bar” that the Resort I stayed in recommend and it was soooo close…

Cool I can walk on the sandy white beach to my restaurant and don’t have to worry about drinking and driving… OMG I am going to sit down and have a meal on my own… glad I did!

…shortly after I ordered my supper and yes glass of wine… this place started to rock… Band, that I didn’t know started to play and believe me this bar was rocking along all night…Absolutely a must visit if you are ever at Grand Anse Beach in Grenada!!! This bar was totally a hot spot to be at…

Red red Wine ….

Walking home to the resort I stopped by the resort directly to my place Coyaba you should have heard the music playing there.. so romantic, I decide to sat for a little and just listen to it.

Grand Anse Beach Is Awaiting You

Wake up girl, it’s a new day …I had 6 pillows to snuggle up to. OMG that is luxury…Bed was sooo crazy big. I could sleep in any direction and my toes never stuck out of the bed..LOL

Looking out to the my perfect view and hearing the ocean … what more can I wish for on this day of Sunday, January 19. 2020. Most are dealing with snow back home..

I am the lucky one to walk on the white sand of Grand Anse in Grenada.

Walking in the white sand…
Making memories for my heart.

Seeing the Luxurious Resorts that are $$$+ for one night say… Cool yes look at the places… seriously? Not one person was there!

I think I am the lucky one staying at Allamanda Beach Resort. I have the staff at this Resort talking to me enjoying the beautiful sunshine in the garden… I believe that is what counts. This gentleman working there said he used to live in Scarborough. How cool is that… Grand Anse Beach is Beautiful

I am surrounded by absolutely beautiful sunrise, beach, the water is my joy, luxury, happyiness, amazing people, happiness, restaurants, sunset….

Peaceful joy in my heart and mind

Grand Anse Beach, Grenada

Day 10 of my Grenada holiday. All 3 crew members left Lady Natalie now… and I have checked in to this beautiful resort called Allamanda Beach Resort right by Grand Anse Beach.

Definitely was speechless once again to see this view this two-mile stretch of creamy-white sand overlooks a sheltered bay. And all right her for me to enjoy the next 3 days. Walked the beach several times, so beautiful..

Was enjoying this time all to mo myself. Something like that I have never done before..peaceful time for me. I enjoyed the first evening just sitting on the beach and looking out to the sea…waiting for the sunset…

as these guys started to run down the beach… I just could not resist asking them to do this again…so I can video them …

Sailing Clubweek Has Come To It’s End

Beautiful morning as always… going to miss having that fresh ground coffee every morning for the past week… Thank you for this treat.

Walking into the the town. look at the flowers so incredibly beautiful. I wish I had a garden like this. But wait I have just not as lush as this is.

We walked all from one side of the bay to the other.. What a beautiful harbor

Once we where at the other side of the bay we looked for Sendall Tunnell that goes under the mountain to the area where the big cruise Ships dock…

But wait there is this Spice market I am so in love with that place.. I wish you too could have been there to feel the vibe in this happy place… So full of Joy. I loved how everyone worked together…

Yes and then look what was next… my hair got braided… Soooo loved this.

Day 9: Sailing Back to Grenada

Getting up In Paradise “Carriacou” one last time… before crew needs to go off Boat tomorrow Day 10 in Grenada. So this time we are not forgetting to put the dingy on deck…

This sailing to Grenada 30 NM of sailing took us I believe 6 hours if I remember correctly. The wind was good. As we sailed on auto pilot across nice soft Sea… LOL I think their is probably a proper sailing term for this.. But I don’t know that yet… I so far have only taken the SKS. But gone to many mentoring evening sails with Grassroots Sailing Centre in past year.

It looks like we all had some moments to be yourself. This back passage made us sleepy… some did read a book, some drifted off into lalal land. Crocheting for a little or soaking up the sunshine on the deck for a bit.. guess who:-) leave it up to me to bring my passion for knitting and crocheting along on any trip.

Arrived in St. George at the Harbor. Look who is right beside us… and in front of us was a Sailboat that had 2 couples on it with their young kids. Sailed across the ocean from France and are on their sailing adventure for 1 full year.. soooo cool. I wish I could do that one day. It was so much fun to be in the Caribbean and hear the children songs I grew up in Switzerland in Swiss German. Honestly It was perfect!!

After a little relaxing hours docked at the marina. We wondered over to the Victory Bar and Restaurant in St. Georges Bay. Very nice place for a beautiful last night together with sailing team.

You should have seen some of these big Yachts and the wealth that goes with it.. Unbelievable. The lighting in them and going into the water..

With this night, my sailing time has come to it’s end here in Grenada… sad moment but I don’t think it will be the last time I was here.

Paradise Beach at Carriacou

After a fantastic relaxing afternoon on Sandy Beach with sunset, perfect turquoise water we did get a bit hungry..

So we had the water taxi come and get us and take us over to Paradise Beach… What a ride… that guy is definitely speeding, or so it felt.. Almost like a roller coaster ride… just on water. What a thrill…loved it!

Paradise Beach Club is another heaven on Earth I think. Allison the owner with her staff so full of smiles and joy for what they do. I am so in love with your place Alison.

A lady was at the bar believe from the England with her hubby.. playing music from her computer.. so cool. Let’s go dancing I said to the crew …as we wait for the food.

Ah so leave it up to me to go first. SO I did chatting with the lady..she said go ask my hubby… ok. dancing we are.. next lets change it up a bit. You go get a lady, I go get a gentleman.. and so on we danced till almost all where on the sandy beach dancing.. It just takes one person to start.. voila it a fun night… under the tropical sky on the beach by Paradise Beach Club

Allison your food is amazing Your staff.. Just love them. Thank you so much for the Conch shell you kindly gave me as a memory.

Allison and I … this night was amazing.
This was just so funny. Clinton and I pretended to have a phone conversation using a Shell…
” Hi Clinton, can you hear me?
Ahh no It’s all fuzzy to me…full of ocean sounds…”
LOL
Happy sounds
Smiles…
Good fun to have… makes the heart happy too.

My heart was happy and so loved this evening… chatting on the deck under the stars… as I was falling a sleep on deck. Kapt’n Dave was worried and said you all should really moved in to cockpit… Waking up in morning with pillow under my head and blanket on me…;-) such a wonderful feeling. Thank YOU.

“Memories …Some call me crazy for sleeping on the balcony in Florida last February so I could hear the ocean. Memories to remember…”

Sandy Island, Caribbean,

Yes I was in total amazement and could not believe how unbelievably blessed I felt as we sailed into this Bay. Paradise Beach on one side of the bay and Sandy Island on the other side. The water OMG I honestly can say I have only one other time (Antigua) seen the water so Turquoise as it is her…

“Sandy Island, off the west side of Hillsborough Bay, is a favorite daytime destination for snorkelers and sailors. It’s a tiny postcard-perfect reef island of glistening sands surrounded by turquoise waters.” 

lol my second attempt snorkeling over to Sandy Beach.. I seem to have a issue with mask filling up with water…

That water was so turquoise blue…. Just wishing we could have stayed longer. I know we all have to get back one day to reality … flights to catch.. new crew coming on board..

Early evening on Lady Natalie.. spending time together so full of laughter, fun moments, time to relax and enjoy the beauty of this incredible Beach.

“My Thoughts Being Creative”

I read this somewhere on a post so true…

“Change your viewpoint, go out and “be interested” in your surroundings and FIND something interesting to photograph or FIND something interesting about life to photograph.”

My thoughts on this is:
The Anchor Is The Center Of Your Heart.
Stay True To Your Heart.
Don’t Forget To Dream And Be Yourself

I find to many times we do as people think we need to do and follow…
I believe in just following what is right for me.

Honestly I don’t even change my pictures much. Possible at times crop them, but that is it. I try to see the photo as I am and that is cool … Just me.

It is as we see it and why change and make them more glam?

Smiles I do the same in my crafting…( Knitting, Sewing etc.)
Lets be us and not make the pictures etc. what it is not…..

Day 8: Carriacou, Caribbean Island

Good morning Sunshine…Jan 16th. 2020

Sea-Glass I found on beach this morning

We are still in Carriacou with plans to get supplies for some food and then heading out to do some sailing… but the Kapt’ns agenda for today was, we practice tacking and jibbing.. Ok I think I am getting the hang of this Lady a little more now. We all had turns on the helm to get to feel the wind and sail…smiles If you tracked the moves on the GPS… lol looks more like a bunch of drunken sailors on the helm… just kidding no drinking as we sail.

With making sure Dave and Clinton get on dinghy with all the food provisions safely to get back in the dinghy?

As Clinton and Dave took food back to sailboat.. Us 3 ladies walked the beach to better spot for us to go back onto the dinghy. I found all kinds of nice shells and even sea-glass. not a lot but first time I actually did find some ever.

Carriacou, Caribbean Island

So I have to tell you something. I need to write thing down in a book when I travel next time. Apparently I had a memory laps somewhere on this trip… we have seen sooo many spectacular places and for me it was a little overwhelming to see all this … paradise. A experience I will not forget, can you tell I am still dreaming about it.

Memory laps was: It looks like we sailed directly from Halifax Harbor to Paradise Beach…NONONO!!! We actually anchored in Carriacou first! Glad Annabelle cleared this up for me…

ahh ok now we are a little hungry lets take the dinghy to shore… and enjoy a meal at “The Slipway” YUMMY.

Craving for food all taken care of now.. back to the Lady… to enjoy the evening on board…Always fun too

A good night sleep… to refresh for a new day of sailing…

Day 6: Grenada to Carriacou, Caribbean Island

So this is now my 6th day on Lady Natalie. The 43 foot Sailboat of Dave’s he also is running Sailabration Cruising. You too could be here one day if you are interested in sailing. I can’t believe look I am sailing today again…Looks like Annabelle had some fun with my camera.

.

This morning we left Halifax Harbor one of my absolute fave spot…

looks good to sail to Carriacou today. So I am on the helm for about I think it was close to 2-3 hours. Loved every moment of it. Such a totally different experience from Lace Simcoe to Ocean sailing. On a bigger sailboat too, sailboat duel helm wheal instead of a tiller…

After several hours on helm Look at what we got into next… .

3-4 meter Swells coming from 2 different directions Now…
“Waves and seas are described by the height from trough to crest; swell also is described by the direction it’s coming from.
” SO if I am correct we had waves and swells coming from 2 directions, hitting each other ?
Am I correct with this thought.?

Big swells are diminishing a little but not by much.. Look at our Annabelle she took the helm… So cool..impressed… I wish I would have too.

Way to go Annabelle!

Arrived at Sandy Beach.. and anchored for tonight.. Smiles I keep on saying this is “PARADIES” this is for sure…what till I show you …tortoise waters all around us….
