Monday 29th April 2013

Well we all slept like logs, and I did not even move I'm sure.
It's a bit chilly but nice, and we finally have that beautiful teal blue water, :-)

Well Tom as landed a bomb on us, he has decided to go back home, so it looks like we are on our own.
Scary scary stuff.
We can't help feeling a little let down by it all, to be honest.
But we totally understand his decision, and wish him all the best.

Today we will go ashore and see if we can get someone to fix our davits.

Well off we went to shore, I did some major cleaning up before we left, I still have heaps to do yet, but I so wanted to get off the boat.
Oh before we left we finally put up the Aussie flag...yay
So off we go no dramas, find a local guy, what a character, very nice guy.

We have two parts one from the main boom, and one for the mizzen mast, that needs fixing as well, so they will fix that and tomorrow at high tied we will take the boat in and they will have a look at the davits and see what can be done about them.

They will not be able to start the work till next week anyway, so we are not sure how long we will be here.
It could even been up to ten days or more.

So after that we decided to go into town and have a look around, what a pretty place, if you have to be stuck somewhere this little island will do just fine.
It's a funny shape it kinda like a sea horse shape, it's only about a mile and a half wide, and about 20miles long.

I always thought of islands to just have single story homes and huts, and palm trees.
But so far they all have multi story buildings and quite modern.
As we were walking around it kinda reminded us of Gibraltar, I guess because it has the English influence.

The problem now is the later we get away from here its looking like we may not make it to the Caribbean, we may just have to go straight to Panama instead, either way it's gonna be a bit scary doing it ourselves.

Well tomorrow is another day.
