Hi dear friends, thank you for following our journey, here is this weeks update.

Although this is a lovely place it’s time we should be elsewhere, hopefully our parts should be here late next week. I here from Lisa, a contact within the Sea Ventures in the UK that the boat show (visitors numbers) is down on last year although the yachting side is holding it’s own. I hope by now the weather back home has improved slightly and the new year has started well for you all.

Life onboard.
Not much to report really this week as everyday is the same as the day before although the friendless of the locals never ceases to amaze me. A ‘green’ turtle came close by the other day so I went in the dinghy and took some cracking video (on the new web site), that and the fact that four divers went down and retrieved our anchor on Friday has made this a good week.

We are still living on sandwich’s as we have done so since we arrived, we only have about 2 – 3 weeks supply left and I am saving that for when we leave.

For those who have requested a copy of a unsent Weekly Updates I will be emailing them out next week from a connection ashore. At the same time the new website will be launched. It has been completely changed, there are photo albums, video albums as well as an archive containing all the past Weekly Updates. So look out for it late next week and any comments on the new site, you no thing’s you would like to see or changed please feel free to let me know.

Well that’s it for this week, a little short but then that’s is reflected by the pace of life out here.

Fair winds and calm seas.
