So long.

Our timing is impeccable(!), as usual...

With the rio taking on the appearance of an extremely agitated washing machine we are about to slip our lines and head out to sea. The last few days have gone a long way to recovering my sea legs and ensuring that the stowage on board is up to par. One or two rattley plates have been cushioned by another tea towel and we are ready for the off.

Final loads are in the washing machine at the laundry and we have to fill with water and fuel in the morning then we hope to make a short hop to Belize. It will be strange to be away from the dock but lovely to be back in the boats natural element. We have taken this week to finish the jobs that are so much easier at the dock. Varnishing, sewing, cleaning. Didn't finish everything but hey what would we have to worry about if we did!

James' crew have returned from Japan to join the collecting YouTube orchestra in New York so they will be able to take over the website again. Sad that we won't be there for the concert on the 15th. We feel that we have got to know some of the musicians over the past few weeks and are really excited for them to be playing at Carnegie Hall. The atmosphere in the hotel that everyone is staying at, just by Central Park, must be simply amazing. All those people coming together for a few days to do what they love best, make music. Still I look forward to the documentary: Harmony, the road to Carnegie Hall. Coming to a screen near you soon....

So farewell from Guatemala, postings will be back via Sailmail and the ssb radio, I do hope that I can remember how everything works!

Second Summit said...

Safe passage and fair winds!

Maggie's back in New Jersey, Bill's still at El Relleno working on Second Summit, Second Summit is still in carpentry, but nearing completion ...

I'm so jealous of you getting to go to Belize!

Hoping Semana Santa doesn't get in your way.
