Travel Day - Destination: Sunny South

Ottawa to St. Thomas through Philadelphia; this is almost becoming routine!

We picked up Eleanor and John at 4:45am and touched down in St. Thomas at 3:00pm with time to be greeted with Cruzan rum and then pick up a rental car.  That is most likely in the wrong order, but it's how it happened and it made the accommodation of driving a North American car (left hand drive) on the left side of the road much easier to come by.

The car made provisioning a breeze, once we found the store.  Instead of the usual Pueblo we headed to the super-store style Plaza Extra where 3 carts later we loaded up the trunk of the car and headed back to the boat.

Apparently as northerners we are blamed for bringing in a cold front with high winds.  Squalls came through and chased us further back from the curb-side seats at the Greenhouse Restaurant, but they served up a great late dinner for us before calling it a night.

Mowzer greeted us with open arms, it felt like coming home.  A season of chartering has offered up a few little dings and minor repairs but she looks great and ready for the coming charter season.

Happy to be back onboard!
