Yes, Aspen is still in the same place as last time and still enjoying St. Lucia.
We received our ocean shipment of replacement parts and have been installing them, slowly. We needed a new toilet and hot water heater. Those were the big items. Then there were the sails. Two new sails were made by Mack Sails in Florida. After many long ocean passages, it was time for new nice white billowing things that fly from the mast. We will see if Aspen enjoys her new suit of sails!
Of course we also had lots of little projects to keep us busy, as is always the case on Aspen.
Maria enjoyed going to the women’s weekly luncheons. No guys are allowed at the luncheons and no boat talk is accepted either! How much fun could that be, said Steve? That’s why guys are not invited.
Steve even got some geophysical consulting work done, using Google Fi. Google Fi allows us to have internet, voice and text messaging without breaking the bank with phone fees. It is like being at home and no one even knows the difference. Nice!
It looks like Aspen’s bow will be turned south tomorrow as we head to Bequia, home to lots of cheap lobster, great beach bars and more friends and happy hours. We’ll see if we can untie our bow lines that seem to have been in one place a long time.
Sail on, sail on Aspen…
