Cash in Trinidad and Tobago

In T&T $100 TT is approx $20 CDN, you need lots of them but the ATM will only give you $3K TT at a time. The machine must recognize we are using a NA card, must think we are American, charges $4.75 USD for the transaction (plus you will be charged an exchange fee by your bank). Guess which banks charge these rediculus fees? RBC, Scotia & CIBC Caribbean! Glad we have shares, keep sending the dividend!

Martinique, heading next to Trinidad

It was not the most comfortable crossing from Antigua to Martinique, but we are here. Love this Island, Baugettes, formage, boudin creole, fois gras! We did visit R&R on Calipso, missed Pam & James. Then after clearing out we find Marina & Vladimir are here but we did not know! Shame on us for not posting our boat travel plans.

Renovation Update

Well we are back on board, a late launch this after a wonderful month with grandkids in South Africa. We launched January 18th, now at anchor.

The renovations went very well, dealing with Michael at Ultra Yacht Refit was a pleasure.

Five Island Harbour

At anchor, beautiful spot. Only a 15 minute dingy ride into Jolly Harbour for supplies.
