The trip was to go to the Tobago Cays and snorkel. There were only about 80 people aboard and from the moment we stepped aboard we were wined and dined first class. For three hours we sailed in a big swell towards our destination.
And then the second ha ha (ironically speaking), once anchored among the thousands of options in these islands, who is anchored ahead of the boat? Juno. My home for the past 9 months that I just left.
|Juno is the middle boat. It can be a very small world!|
Again I ask, WHAT ARE THE CHANCES!
So, I was suppose to be observing sea turtles but I swan over to Juno to say hello. They were as surprised as I had been. I was a little embarrassed because these mass excursions are what we make fun of when you are a yachty...but please note: they did NOT make us wear the bright orange life jackets to be ferried back and forth! ..in fact, there were no waivers and they didn't even take a head count when we left! Ah yes, we are in the Caribbean. Don't worry, be happy and all that.
But, it was good to see everyone. My heart wanted to climb aboard and stay, my head said stay in the water, say hello and swim away which I did.
|The same captain has owned this boat since it was built in 1967. Originally there were no ferries to the island and it was this boat that brought animals, lumber, food and people to Bequia.|
I have until Jan. 2 to decide on another boat. Today I ship boxes of my excess things home reducing my bags to 3 manageable bags. Continuing my goal to "move my life forward a little everyday."
