Thanks friends who worried that we sunk or were stranded on a desert island. Shamefully, I have just gotten so far behind since my last post in August just as Hurricane Irma was making landfall on Dominica. Since last September, we sailed from Curacao to Santa Marta, Columbia, to Cartegena, to Linton Bay, to the San Blas Islands, to Portobello, and to Shelter Bay Marina at the entrance to the Panama Canal. Today we will help some friends as "line handlers" for their 50 mile crossing of the Panama Canal to the Pacific Side. It will take two days. Rascal will stay on the Caribbean side. In the interim, if you want to know more about the cruising lifestyle (on other boats), please follow this link to another section of our website: www.svrascal.com/the-cruising-life.html
Rick and Linda Grimes bought a sailboat and left the U S of A for the Caribbean in 2015.
