Nice?...Believe me my young friend. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."
from The Wind in the Willows
I guess we agree because after only four months we're heading back to Isla Mujeres and Wahoo on Thursday (Nov 21, 2013). We've been in Houston staying with John Edward and Laura so that Roy could help get John Edward's music studio built. A disastrous contractor who was also probably financially distressed (or a monster out for John Edward's soul, hard to tell) had mucked things up very, very badly. Roy, John Edward and Walter, a Honduran carpenter spent a month or more on remedial work, including the need for a new roof, but eventually started moving the project forward.

It surely wasn't enough time to be home but with Roy working so hard in Houston and no hurricanes this year we decided to let 7th St keep feeding the cruising kitty and head back South.

Plans are being made for 10 months of cruising. Belize for the winter then across the Yucatan Channel to island hop along 660 miles of Cuba's southern coast. We'll then sail to Jamaica, the Southern coast of Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and decide where to leave the boat in August. More on all of that later. Now we're just looking forward to Roy being able to sleep-in most mornings.
