Peake Yacht Services,
I know it’s been a long time for me posting. I’m sorry, but I just haven’t felt like it. This trip has been so different than the first time and not as enjoyable for me. Most of my updates have been going to my FB page under my name.
So currently, Phil and I had Changes pulled 2 days ago and we have been working on cleaning and preparing to fly home to Cleveland for few months. Monday I made a duffle bag, a BIG bag as there seems to be a lot of things to bring home that we either need to use or that we want off the boat.
Last night and this morning it poured and then continued to rain after we woke giving us a reprieve not only from the heat but from the work. We went upstairs from the hotel room we are staying in at Peakes while on the hard since we didn’t bring the umbrella or foul weather gear off the boat and didn’t feel like getting wet. The breakfast was good and it’s reasonable priced too. 2 eggs and 2 slices of toast for $12.00TT or $2 USD.
We are so glad to have this hotel room!!! Working in the heat has been difficult as there is not as much wind where we are nestled between the building with the bathrooms and a bigger boat. There is nothing like knowing the day will end with a nice shower and air conditioning! Phil has been able to watch his favorite show on the Speed channel, Pass Time. It has also given us the opportunity to put things in the V-Berth for storage as we work.
So just what are our plans. We arrive home on June 17 taking the red eye on United Airlines. We will be living with Phil’s sister. THANK YOU Virginia. I will be going back to work end of June with the same hospice company I have been working for. Phil will be coming back Oct 21 to prepare Changes to go back in the water and I’ll return November 12. We hope to get to Grenada before the Christmas Winds build but well see.
