Grand Anse Fun In The Sun

Grand Anse Beach
The week before last while ploughing through our usual activities, maintenance and general grind that takes 100 X longer afloat than it does ashore we have had a fun and social week.
Grand Anse Beach 
I had a fabulous day out at the spectacular Grand Anse beach with Nina & Renate whose birthday it was.  Chatting, frolicking and playing ball in the sun until we were too frazzled to do any more. It is really a stunning beach and a shame that as cruisers we tend not to spend much time at some of these places.

We have had dinners out to celebrate Nina's birthday at the Tiki Bar and a BBQ on a friends boat on a calm and balmy night. We caught up with people we had not seen for a while whilst watching the Doc Adams Blues Band.

We have talked for a long time about getting a kayak to join our upwardly mobile fleet. But they are not easy to come by down here at a reasonable price. When we found out that another cruiser was selling one – we jumped at the chance.  We took a trip around to St Georges to take a look.  It was a little bigger and a little pricier than we wanted.  But we were taken and after a little negotiating with the very nice couple, came home with a green kayak.  
Sim and his new green toy!
