 Well today was quiet to start with went and did a bit of groceries, no dramas...hahaha
Also had a swim mainly to search for a pair of reading glasses, that Frank our new neighbor, lost overboard last night when he went to climb in his dingy, and after a few drinks..lol
So I geared up with all my snorkel gear and went over to search after only about 15 mins I found them was quite happy with myself as there is a lot of water out here but the water is very deep so the captain dived down and retrieved them.
Frank was so happy he brought us a bottle of red, so yeah we were happy too.

We caught a taxi to the airport this afternoon to fetch Tom our new crew, was strange to be waiting for a flight to come in and not catching one out. The plane was late as usual so we had quite a long wait.
There was a bit of concern as Vic has not seen Tom for over 30 years and was worried that they may not recognize each other but all went well and they did straight away.
So we collect Tom catch a taxi back get in the dingy come back to the boat and the ocean is kicking up a bit, so we are rocking and rolling all over the place.....not such a good first impression of the boat as we would have liked.
But all seems to be going ok, they have chatted so much I think they wore each other out...hahaha
Again I don't get much of a word in.

So the big plan, The captain and Tom are going to go through the boat tomorrow with a fine tooth comb, to make sure all is ok then we will set sail tomorrow, OMG...am a bit scared about this it can take anywhere from three to five weeks.
Our first big crossing, but at least when we get there we will be safe and out of the hurricane belt.
So I will continue to write my daily blogs, but may not be able to upload them till we get Internet reception again, so u may all have a lot of reading to catch up with....hahaha
Well tomorrow is another day.
