We're still here!

Agreed! We have been remiss on keeping up our blog.

What's been happening since the last post?

On the social scene: Chris has been teaching sailing classes and playing in the music jams at the West Indies Brewery on Tuesday nights; Linda has been teaching yoga classes and enjoying beach days with cruisers.

Vacations with visitors: Linda's sister Mary visited us in November and then again in January with friend, Julie. In December, Chris's sister Lindy and hubby Rich vacationed in Grenada, and in February Linda's cousin Rose and hubby, Steve vacationed at an airbnb in Grenada.

Gone Sailing: In April, Linda joined Chris on a boat delivery to St. Maarten and was glad to be sailing again, and Chris was glad to have her as crew.

Back in the U.S.: Late April, Linda returned to the states, spending time in Florida with Lindy. Chris joined her in June and we rented a car and visited friends and family on a three week road-trip to Wisconsin.

In July, we both joined the Moore family for a long weekend at the annual reunion at Ft. McCoy in Wisconsin.

Chris returned to Grenada to begin teaching sailing, while Linda went to a yoga teacher training in Vancouver, B.C.

The past year has been full of the things we enjoy - spending time with our families, hanging out with friends, enjoying the cruising lifestyle!

Now we're back on Troubadour in Mt. Hartman Bay (Secret Harbour) Grenada!

Wedding and Honeymoon

The beginning of May found us among relatives and good friends at Satori, my sister Lindy’s house nestled behind extensive landscaping in Wellington. We had planned our wedding in the USA to allow more people to travel and attend, and were rewarded with a great group from all facets of our lives: childhood friends, sailing friends, college friends, Navy friends.




No Rehearsal, so it's time for Happy Hour!
The Ceremony
Butterfly Release
Toasting
Cruiser reunion!
As my Navy buddies already know, you’re not married until the Navy says you’re married. As there was a center right in West Palm Beach, I wasn’t too worried until I finally got an answer to my phone calls and found out their first available appointment wasn’t for another month. Luckily, there was an Air National Guard center near where we were honeymooning in Fontana, NC that had appointments available that week. This also gave us the opportunity to drive “The Dragon”, the pass through the Appalachians famous for its twists and turns. With Linda’s new dependent ID card in hand, we made the return trip among the motorcycle and sportscar groups enjoying the early summer, and spent the rest of the week relaxing, hiking, and taking a lake tour.

With the festivities concluded, Chris returned to Troubadour for a few days of maintenance before teaching more sailing classes in June and July, and Linda returned to WI to spend more time with family and teach yoga there.
