Well after another 4 1/2 hr flight from LA to Fort Lauderdale I'm here. Got in a 6 this morning and went straight to bed - a tad stuffed I was. Woke up at 230 and had a shower. You guys will love this. To shower you just wet yourself, turn off the water then soap up, wash etc, then a very quick rinse off. Water is precious on the boat! The boat is 60 foot long and amazing. Most of the roof paneling is down and thats one of my jobs to help put her back together after the new mast was fitted. the master cabin has its own en suite and theres a separate bathroom for the cabin boy. The finishings are very lush and she is just beautiful. We went for a quick drive this arvo - crap its a bit scare the driving stuff here and odd road rulz and some of those american cars/truck/vans whatever are massive! Hummmers plus etc. Had lunch at a dinner - eggs Benedict and fries which turned out tobe small fired cubes - yummy, the dinner was one of those real american ones and the waitresses don't get paid a wage , they rely totally on tips! Tn went for a quick drive along the coast and town - its just like the movies in Miami Vice - just they think its cold so the beaches are deserted.
Then we came back and started to tidy up, put the stuff away etc and generally look at what needs to be done and make some lists of kit etc to get.
Robyn went to the supermarket for some bits and we had some yummy salad, breads and cheeses for tea.. Worked on the Home theatre system etc and made list of what that needs and thats today cut.
Tomorrow will be sorting the new sails if not to windy. Were all a bit knackered and Peter and Robyn are already in bed so I too am off to my cabin now. Love to you all and when I take and sort out home to post them show you some images. Got some realestate booklets today. Found a couple of nice wee holiday homes between to 5 to 8 million US for us.
