Souls on Board

Here we are at anchor in St. Georges, Grenada, our final destination.  It's quite amazing how far we've come in the 29 days since leaving the dock in Woods Hole.  There is excitement in the air as the students are getting ready to go ashore and maybe a little unwilling recognition that the trip is almost over.  The final port call is a bittersweet moment as one has spent the whole trip heading to this point (storms and dolphins, rain and rainbows, crepuscular rays and beautiful sunsets) and yet this community and home we have built is almost over. We spent last night sailing from Carriacou under beautiful conditions and tacked into St. George's harbor until we got close enough that we had to start up the engine. Cramer seemed excited to be coming into anchorage gliding along the water under the 4 lowers.  A lot of preparation happened on morning watch such as getting anchors ready and furling the sails so they look nice as we sit nestled amongst a lot of yachts at this anchorage (I bet they are all jealous of this good looking boat).

Snack this morning was fresh passion fruit Kim got in Carriacou and multiple jokes were made about our passion for sailing.  Soon we will be doing some small boat runs in to St. George's so that the students and some staff will have a few hours to roam the streets seeing the local people and culture and a little relaxation under a shady tree.  The town is small but beautiful and has a really interesting fort with a nice vista of the bay and Caribbean Sea. The next few days will be a whirlwind of activity and we are all excited for a little relaxing, a little adventure, and the chance to stretch our legs (for longer than 134 feet)- not to mention - a little TING!
