I didn't do as much as I had planned, but that is a sure sign that I'm acclimated to “Island Time”. I did work on cleaning the dinghy garage, had breakfast at La Sucrière, met with Bernd and Carmen, had them come over to help me get the Bauer compressor from the dinghy garage into the forward cabin, where it fits quite snugly beneath the bunk and where I'll get the electrical connection set up and working in the next couple of days. After all that work I opted to stay aboard and test out the barbie by making a hamburger and some garlic bread which tasted just fine.

Saying bye to Carmen and Bernd I've just taken a goodbye picture of Carmen and Bernd - they crewed for me on the big voyage from the USA and have now returned to their beloved catamaran, "Mau". I'll meet up with them in a couple of weeks, hopefully.
