6 more sleeps before we are back on board......

Happy that all 8 bags made it last December !    

  The next few days are going to be a whirlwind of preparation.. as we pack up our 8 (yes 8!)  bags. We will fill them with useful things like school material, books, a BBQ (yes you read that right), an inflatable paddleboard (to replace the inflatable kayak which wouldn't float!)....some more books,some kitchen "essentials" (read "gadgets"), sewing stuff, more books and some home decor....to make it feel more like, well... home ! In December when we went down, we had also taken 8 bags with us and returned with only 2 (not counting the brand new/defective kayak which we had ot lug all the way back to Canada !) I sure hope we are as lucky with not loosing our luggage this time round !  The only thing I will do differently though is to pack WAY FEWER regular clothe.....even the shorts and T- shirts....useless down there !  I will fill the space with new bathing suits and sandals instead !

 Last December we headed North and spend about 2 weeks in Martinique and the last 2 weeks in St Lucia. This time we hope to make it South to St Vincent (Grenadines) and Bequia. We have less time so will probably aim to leave a day or two after our arrival in St Lucia. We will keep you posted on all that very soon....
