Sailing into Turks & Caicos

I had a very busy day today. It started with some home made pancakes and bacon which was very hot and sweaty work because it was 82 degrees. I then went and rented a car for 40 bucks with my dad. I drove on the left side of the road and it was very challenging to do but I made it all over the island. We went and got food and the most important RUM and WIne! I also found out the the middle finger is a international sign and is used the same way as we do in the state when driving. I found this out by driving on the wrong side of the road a few times OOPS. After that I installed a VHF radio into the cock pit of Dragonsbane and antenna which will be very nice to have. I then made  a frozen pizza and drank some wine and talked with our neighbor in the boat slip next to us. I found out he was a pilot in the military for 25 years served in Vietnam  Alaska, and everywhere else you can think of. He had a very interest family back round and talked about his uncle who took all the photo of the nuclear blast back in the 40s that we see today and then took all the photo of the first space shuttle that went to the moon. Then I talked with our other neighbor who was a merchant marine for 14 years and all the things he did on freighters back in the 70s and 80s. He was from the UK ans just recently divorced of 36 years and is now looking for a lady to come sail with him. Let me now if your interested  he is a real nice man. O my dad dropped the good screw driver into the ocean today, had to make sure something went wrong today, lol. Anyway it was a very busy day and I am going to bed. I will post some pictures tomorrow  over coffee.

Thanks,

Jacques

    Jacques, perhaps you should take your beer brewing skills to the Turks and Caicos. It looks like it could be quite lucrative! Mom

    It is much more fun to get the middle finger on a beautiful island than on 97 or 695, eh?

    • You bet, I was only going 25 with a few cars coming at me but it was still funny. Hope all is well Marry Christmass
