If this is Friday .....

Well - we had a big, pleasant surprise today! We were listening to the cruiser's net this morning at 8:00 a.m., and we kept hearing the announcer say that tomorrow, on Saturday, there would be various events. The thing is, we though TODAY was Saturday. We were all set to do a final cleaning and get the boat to its mooring so we could board the plane on Sunday (tomorrow, we thought). Surprise - we have an extra day! What a gift, and an indication of how far gone we are in relation to the real world! (No, no THIS is the real world :).

In any case we have an extra day to get things done in a relaxed way, while we sway at anchor just off the mainland. Last evening we braved big waves in our dinghy to get back to George Town to meet up with our sailing buddies, Therese and Denis, for one last bar-b-que together at the Club Peace and Plenty. After a lovely dinner, we got into our respective dinghies and braved even bigger waves back in the dark - and got totally soaked! But we did manage to find our boat (in question for a while) - all part of the fun.

Here are some pics from our stay at near-by Stocking Island, and one of Sea Change's home-to-be ...
