All the ARC boats have progressively left now. The last activity was Bluebell’s birthday just before she left to fly out to England to stay with her grandparents whilst the rest of the family carries on to Panama. We went out on a day sail to Anse Cochon with Peta from the Rally organisation and her two boys and John and Joyce from Starblazer. We had a great day drinking fresh fruit daquiries, snorkelling and the boys on the kayaks.

The St Lucia Jazz Festival starts soon so there will be lots of café and restaurant based performances as well as some big days at Pidgeon Island. We discovered that George Benson, Air Supply, Kool and the Gang and Mac Anthony were all playing on the last night so we have booked to go. It coincides with when we have to be back in Rodney Bay for the new generator to be installed. It’s the 40th anniversary of Air Supply. I have to admit I didn’t know that they we still out there
