Life is good on Sinbad! We are hanging out in the Spanish Virgin Islands until Diane flies to Michigan to see her family the second week in March. We had just dropped the hook in Culebra, and the people on boat behind us yelled "Hey Sinbad. Are you really from Michigan? We are from Holland, Michigan!" Too cool! It turns out that Jim & Michelle on "Wind Machine", a C&C 42, sailed out of Michigan about eight years ago. Within a couple of days we meet their good freinds Rico and Jackson from Southfield, Michigan (who have been sailing the Carib. & Med with them for the last six or so years) on their Tartan. Plus, Michelle said "Oh, by the way, we have some freinds sailing in and they have a Whitby 42 like Sinbad. Turns out it's Bruce & Maureen on S/V Memory, whose company we enjoyed at the last two Whitby Rendezvous. So far, Culebra has been fun and relaxing.
With the two of us (Diane & Randy) both owning cameras and putting our thoughts and pictures in this blog, things might jump around a bit. Now is one of those times. I took some pictures that maybe, kind of sort of, have been in previous post...........but here they are!
This is from Fort Louis at Marigot Bay, Saint Martin.
We were putt-putting in the lagoon, which is split between the French & Dutch....Randy, John & Diana Thrush...
This is where the Governor of Saint Martin hangs his hat.
This is at Port Royal (on the French side of the lagoon) Saint Martin. Someone lives here and collects what ever drifts by.
This guy was hiding in the coral in about ten feet of water at Flamenco Beach, Culebra.
More to be added at a later date!
