It's Been Awhile

We have found out that there is only so much time in a day. You can have fun, you can work or you can write on your blog. So that's our story on why we haven't updated the blog in a while. We have chosen to have fun, work a little bit, then have more fun. It's a hard life living on a sailboat but we are managing. In fact, we think life is good!
Today we are in Virgin Gorda BVI.  Tomorrow afternoon we sail to St Martin, will be heading for Marigot on the French side. We need to stock up on our French wines, cheeses and sausage before heading to Antigua.
In the last month hanging out in the USVI we installed a mirror in our salon, extended our aft rails 4 1/2 ft and put a 135 watt solar pannel into our electrical system.

Our new mirror

You sailors who are reading this will appreciate that the mirror is plexiglass. It looks good and is safer than regular glass mirrors. We also hope to find another 135 watt solar panel down-island to install on the port side.
Happy Sails
