Back On The Boat

We said farewell to family and friends in California on January 13th, 2009 and returned to Grenada. We will miss everyone and all our favorite things:

Our house and all it's ammenities

Long walks and favorite hang-outs (Dana at Starbucks)

Meghan's MojitosGrocery store And great Pacific sunsets from the back yard. But we returned to Grenada for a great surprise. No No, the boat was not gone but we found someone we had long been searching for.....Anne's cousins Nils and his family. We knew Nils lived on the island but even on a small island like Grenada we had been unable to locate him. Thanks to Uncle Hans in Sweden we got connected via email and soon we were vising his beautiful home Villa Zanzibar.

Perched on a hillside in Ft. Jeudy, the house overlooks Chemin Bay.

Outdoor living at it's best.

A day after our reunion it was time to launch Fine Line. She looks great with new bottom paint and waxed topsides.

So now what?? It is very hard to leave here with our new found family just around the corner. Besides it is windy and the seas are big so why not stay awhile? We'll see.

Until next time,

Steve and Anne
