We have been all over the place during the last few months and I had my computer with me, trying to understand what I was doing with advice from a more experienced operator in another country. Well, I am almost there, not quite yet, but almost. Anyone else heard of an “endless loop?”. Apparently, that was ONE of my more creative entries! Taking it slowly and apologies to all whom I most certainly would have contacted if I could.
We have been storm dodging again. Tropical Storm Don gave reason to move Ngoma and then, once sure our attention was really focused, went from 50 to 60kts to a friendly 30 to 40kts and decided to fade even more before reaching the new anchorage.
Ngoma is back in her usual place now, all quiet on this western front. Sun shining, crew joking again, much less anxious and lighthearted!
Hope you are all enjoying calm environments, wherever you are.
Lost and found – I am able to use my e-mail again. Looking forward to hearing
Love this place, Tobago Cays never fails to astound me.
Making our way back to Ngoma in the dinghy after snorkelling on the reef.
This was taken a couple of weeks ago when we swam with reef fish, rays and turtles.
The air has cleared since the “official” end of the hurricane season. Each morning is a glorious experience of invigorating air with colours and clarity accentuated to an unbelievable height. I am reminded of the early morning on the African veld and drawn there each day for reminiscences almost too much to bear. At the end though, I am very grateful to be here, in land so beautiful with all its new experiences and new people.
This is grazing land for a beautiful herd in Martinique. We were there earlier this year and it remains one of our favourite destinations.
No snow for Christmas, just warm, clear air and sun.
