      Hello Heidi, great to hear from you. We shipped our boat from New Zealand to Martinique and have now sailed to Grenada to haul out. Flying to Playa del Carmen for my daughter Jessica’s wedding. I think we’ll be in Cartagena for Christmas New Years then heading to Panama San Blas in New year 🙂 we’ll keep in touch, hugs to you both. PS haven’t had time to write my blogs 😦
