Back On-line!

Yes, we are back on-line! After weeks of a broken down computer, Jim has it working again. It has taken many, many hours and cost us a lot of money in beer. When you sit in a bar using their WiFi it would be rude to not buy drinks.
This is what the computer screen looked like as Jim was working on it. Windows crashed and it took a new installation disk to get it working again. After installing Windows there were 88 updates that had to be downloaded so that took another visit to the bar! Then all our other programs had to be installed because everything was lost. That was another trip to the bar! Luckily Jim had been backing up files to an external hard drive so we lost very little. The most important thing, the pictures from the past 3 years were saved.

In our last update we told you about the great sailing between Dominica and St. Martin. Here are a few photos of the trip.
Leaving Martinique.

The anchorage at Portsmouth, Dominica.

Monserrat looks different then a year ago. The ash flow continues to change with recent eruptions.

So life’s a beach! Or whatever brings a smile to your face!
