As a blogger I am a failure. First law: blog often. I failed. So an update: We did get moving eventually, and are now in Georgetown, Exumas waiting for the Out Island Regatta. The sailing has been glorious, and uneventful. Lessons learned to come.
"Dance," AKA "Mother Ship" decided to go to the Med by ship. They had had enough of the heat and humidity, Simone was longing for European food and shops, and Jos was longing for Simone to be happy and stop bitching.
Just before Xmas, as we were weighing anchor for the Bahamas, a large advertising agency hired us to help develop a long term strategy for the agency brand. This involved first interviewing CEO/CMO's around the world US, UK, Germany, Mid-East, India, China, South Africa and Brazil...in other words a great gig. Once we arrived in Georgetown, we left the boat and dog in the care of my son Shae. We are now back, boat and dog are great, son headed back to civilization.
Also around Christmas, my constant companion and best friend died at the age of 14. We miss Elmo, the "little man in the brown woolly suit."
