Chris, Kathy and Linda with the wine bottles in evidence – after all those darn classes I attended while still in Dallas I did not get one of the first 4 correct. (It was a blind tasting.) The last two were a Zin and a Cab – those were easy as there were only 2 and I DO know the difference between them on my pallet.
This brings us close to the end of March, our plans are to leave the Virgins next Friday (4/1/2001), sail to South Caicos. We will stay there a few days, then go to Rum Cay for a few days, then Georgetown, Exumas to meet friends Betty and Bert Roy.
Then, John had Mexican night on his boat the next night (forgot my camera). Ane, Kathy and Kenny had a wine tasting the following night.
This is John and Kenny
For those of you who don’t think we get mail, Rick took a picture of us picking it up at Connections in Cruz Bay:
Here is our permanent address until further notice:
Mark & Chris Lignoul
121 Rainbow Drive # 2100
Rick and Susan get to see first hand the insignia Rick designed for us years ago to put on our main and jib sails. He is a graphic designer and made this just for us and we just love it – nice touch for a boat called Silhouette owned by a couple.
A glorious sunset. I know that if Mom had taken the sunset slides of this (yes there are more but I chose only one to blog) that it would have been both a sunset and a sunrise. (Family lore….let me know via email if you are interested in the whole story & I will tell you the whole story.)
We have our friends Anne and Miles to thank for introducing us to Rick & Susan years ago. Rick, Susan, Mark and I had many enjoyable sails, dinners, anchor-outs and ONE big storm on Lake Lewisville, etc. since the introduction. Miles & Anne keep their boat in Nanny Cay (over the mountain from where we were going next). We called to see if they could join us for dinner in Cane Garden Bay. They taxied over and this is me, Anne and Susan having cocktails aboard Silhouette.
Soon after getting out of the water Susan spots this big fish swimming around – now it is hard to tell…but…it looks like a shark to us. Needless to say if we had seen it before getting in the water, the snorkeling would have been cancelled. Susan said she had never seen water so pretty, ever.
A really cool looking rock on the way to Sopers Hole, Tortola.
Sopers Hole was our first stop as we needed to check into British customs.
On Saturday March 12 our friends Rick and Susan Carnes flew in to stay with us for a few days. I believe I mentioned before that I ‘forget’ to take pictures when someone else is snapping away so most of these were taken by Rick. Guess it would have been difficult for me to get a picture of Rick and Susan on the airplane now that I think of it…
