|The sun is setting on this phase of the journey - but the fun has just begun!|
It feels so bizarre to be here. On the one hand we are relieved because it means no more waking up at 5 am to ready anchor, no more racing against the clock, no more deadlines and timelines and overnight passages. On the other hand, however, it feels odd. Living like nomads has become our life, we love moving somewhere new every other day - and to imagine being in one place for five months - well, it seems almost impossible! We will, of course, explore this exotic "Spice Island" and we plan to move around to check out different coves and anchorages - so we're not completely "stuck"!
Luckily for us we have a new sponsor in Port Louis Marina and they have made us feel right at home. From their excellent staff to their personal warm welcome - we know we are right where we belong! This marina is first rate and it shows in everything from the rain showers in the bathroom (yay!) to the private pool (double yay!). Scott and Danny Donelson (the wonderful man in charge of marketing here) have also discovered a mutual love of tennis, mountain biking, triathlon and pretty much all things active. I think they'll be good friends. He has also offered us a personal tour of his beautiful island as well as a sail on his personal boat - so rest assured we'll tell you about that.
So - while we have reached the "destination" of this phase of our trip - we are by no means finished with the journey! I have exciting plans to grow the blog, to grow Windtraveler and to keep you reading!
For now, thanks so much for your support, prayers, kind words, emails, advice, and loyalty! It's been a pleasure to have you!
