Hunkered down in Grenada

The virus has everyone hunkered down here. The gov stopped private plane 2 weeks ago and then they stopped cruise ships. They closed schools and churches and sent the Univ students home. They are requiring medical test of all private boat entering and they will close the airport at midnight on Monday. Those boats that have been here for more than a week are not quarantined. All new boat coming in are required to quarantine.
Still no identified cases of the virus here. One tourist that stayed for a week at the Raddison Hotel later went to St. Lucia and was found positive. All of the staff associated with this tourist have been tested and are negative.
Given the number of tourist that have been here in the past few months, I imagine the virus is here but has not been detected as of yet.

I just rediscovered these picture from the atlanic crossing in 2016

Yes here are some nice photo of me and the crew on the outside passage, 16ft plus waves.The dogs in their life harnesses having a rest in the cock pit.

Cy at the helm in 16ft breaking seas. Yes they don't look that big in the photo. But look at the breaking wave on my left side. It was a great ride for 1700miles…. Cinco wanted to kill me for that….

Sorry the pictures haven't been reduced to 480X so they may overflow the window. This was a 1700 mile passage to the Carib. Just rediscovered these photos today

Just got an email from a classmate of mine

I haven't seen Murray in over twenty years. It brought tears to my eyes. I had to delay the Grenada Net for a few minutes to recover. It is so nice to hear from old friends! She found me on Google.
Now I'm thinking of Annette, I cried for 3 days after I heard what happed to her over 20 years ago. She was my sweet heart and made the best fried chicken I ever had. These were some of my best friends in school. Nice to hear that Murray is doing well.
I haven't heard from Beth Miller, Sandy Fontenot, Michelle or Bridgette. Maybe soon I will hear from them as well.

No clouds last night, STARS

Last night was great for star watching. I haven't seen it this clear in a few years. Hope to see more in the next few weeks. The Souther Cross is begging to rise after midnight. The milky way has set already.

I just went to see the grave site for the boys

Now that I'm back on the boat, I miss them so much. I went to see them today. I'll have to get some more paint for Cinco. Otherwise all is well. I cried a bit, but okay. Their little Christmas stockings are sill on their cap stones. AGHHHHHA… I miss those two little vermin.
