We haven’t blogged recently, as the end of 2015 and the beginning of 2016 was filled with a four letter word: W-O-R-K. I know we’re supposed to be cruising and living the good life, but circumstances have kept us tied down a bit. Granted, WORK means that I teach sailing to other people in one of the greatest locations in the world, sailing among islands in clear blue water and teaching them to anchor in nothing but powder soft sand, but it keeps us from venturing forth to do our own things which we feel are blog-worthy.
Teaching in Grenada or the Grenadines kept me busy through the New Year, and then I had the opportunity to head back “up island” for an advanced class, working with students to cruise a boat from St Lucia to St Martin and a new group of students to return to St Lucia.
In March we got one of our rare visits from friends, Linda’s friend Kara joined us on Troubadour for a bit more than a week to experience life afloat. She enjoyed the typical Grenada experience: Yoga, noodling, learning the “Spice Island” from Cutty, a cruiser's jam (which Kara ROCKED!), and a short sailing excursion around Point Saline to the Grenada Marine Park for some snorkeling among the sculptures.

Serendipitously, a few more weeks of W-O-R-K found us in Florida, USA where our next “vacay” was planned. Our close friends and Facebook followers already know what happened there, but you’ll have to wait for me to post pictures of our time in FL (and NC!) on the blog. Until next time!
