After eating breakfast in the park we headed out and managed to cover most of the major sites that we had put on our ‘list’ which suprised us a little, but then again we did walk a long way and did a whistle stop tour of the places we went to.
Flying home from St Maarten was looking to be fairly expensive until I found some last minute seats on a flight to Paris which dropped the cost of the flight by about £300 making it much more affordable. Since we were going to be flying through such an amzing city I decided that we would have to stay for a while.
Sorry for the short hiatus from blogging, we are currently not travelling any more. But my sumer is starting to fill up quite quickly.
I have finally finished editing my photos from Paris, minus the huge numbers I took in the maritime museum, so I will start posting some of them. In more recent news I am on my way back from Ed’s house at the moment and during my time there we went into Worcester so I have a few photos from there to put up. In the near future the next photo worthy moments will be my birthday meal and Round The Island Race before I leave for the Baltic for Tall Ships Races, which should produce some amazing photo opportunities.
We have taken the decision to come back home as the time trying to find another boat out of the Caribbean was wearing on our nerves. I had made the decision that I would fly home after our aborted attempt to cross the Atlantic and was just chilling out for a bit waiting to find out the fate of Mojito and wait for the UK to warm up a little.
There are worse places to be stuck, thinking about it this should probably have been the title to my blog as it seems to be one of our favourite phrases or at least one of the most commonly used ones. First it was the Barbados, then St Lucia followed by Antigua for a time, well the Caribbean as a whole for a good 4months now we have to add another hot and sunny location to the list of islands we have been ‘stranded’ on, St Maarten!
I have a few posts I have still got to cstch up with but for now we are moving on and have changed boats, we are now sailing on a Moody 64 which we are helping deliver to Palma.
We spent a week living in an apartment ashore enjoying the luxuries of running water and having a bed that didnt rock the whole time, we then moved onto Mojito nearly a week ago, leaving for the right side of the Atlantic tomorrow. We should be in the Azores in 1.5 to 2 weeks and then in Palma hopefully around a week after that.
Although we may regret it once we are actually there we are looking forward to the cooler weather that will be In Europe, certainly my skin will thank me for it.
So until I reach land again, I hope everyone else’s sailing or shore life is going well.
See you on the other side…
