|Grand Anse Beach, Grenada|
Friends have gone home and come back, we've enjoyed having family visit and stay aboard, taken island tours, participated in music jam sessions; Chris has been winning at weekly poker games, I've been doing tarot card readings, we've hiked with friends to the beach, danced under the stars, gone scuba diving, joined the 6:30 am swimming club (once), played volleyball, and lazily float around on our swim noodles or on what my friends call The Blue Chair . The daily dip is a necessity to beat the ungodly heat of living at 12° north latitude in the summer.

Fun fact: Mercury will be in retrograde October 21 - November 10. According to the Farmer’s Almanac and many astrologers this can cause your plans to go awry, coincidences can be extraordinary and your intuition will be high (so pay attention to it). You should avoid making hasty decisions, don't sign any contracts until you've read them thoroughly, and give yourself plenty of time to get somewhere if you are traveling. Some people notice that their computers go haywire and their phones won't work; to be on the safe side you may want to back up all of your electronic devices. I've never really paid attention to this before, but now that we are planning to do some travelling we need our navigation instruments to be in good working order as well as our computers, so just to be safe, we'll be checking everything.
