Speaking of tropical waters for the winter, the days started growing colder. It was becoming reminiscent of when I first arrived 5 months ago. Lisa and I started planning our trip from Puerto Rico through the Caribbean for the winter. We put our trip on hold for 6 months so we could build up our sailing kitty. Now came the time to finally get started again. There are so many great places to see in the Caribbean; the USVI, BVI, French Islands, Dutch Islands and everything in between. Each island has it’s own unique culture and cuisine to enjoy.
Before we could get started again there was one more trip planned and few projects to tackle when I got back to Puerto Rico. We hadn’t planned on going to the Annapolis Boat Show in 2019 but my season ended October first. The Annapolis boat show is always at the beginning of October. Since I had to fly all the way back to Puerto Rico, Lisa decided we should meet in Annapolis. We could have a small vacation before we start our large vacation in the Caribbean. When my contract was up in Alaska I flew to Annapolis. Lisa asked our friends aboard Libertad to watch Bastet, our cat, for a few days and she packed her things for the trip. Lisa met me in Annapolis and we saw each other for the first time in 5 months.
Be sure to check back for next week’s blog when we talk all about the boat show and Lisa’s new best Bud.
