I have developed a rather new irritating habit (no comments please!) I wake up at 6:30am on the dot every morning, lets hope its a temporary thing! But it does mean I get a lot of work done before Richy wakes up, hence the blog at 7am this morning!
There has been a whole world of news since my last blog, I guess we need to get out more! Arrived to St Thomas, we checked in at St John, which is all modern and swanky now, they have the proper booths and finger print machines, we didnâ€™t get finger printed, so I donâ€™t know if they work or not but they look the part. Made it to Charlotte Amalie and was greeted by 2 familiar facesâ€¦..
This is Bob and Sheila, brokers from St Martin and good friends of the boat! They have been here for the boat show and are hanging out before heading off again. We popped over for a visit and were quite excited as we know they have pussy cats aboard, we saw pictures when they were kittens but we never got to meet them until now and what little cuteys they are
Early start this morning, with a full St Thomas day ahead, we were quite successful and the day of shopping was made much more enjoyable as everywhere has Christmas stuff! The normal boring dredge of home depot was fabulous, where can we fit this on the boat Kerry? I also thought Rich's dad would like this, I love being at his house at Christmas, it is like living in Santas grotto, he really goes to town and everything is Christmassy even the toilet paper!
We have bought a little tree, Rich convinced me a 6 foot one wasnâ€™t practical, so we bought a â€œCharlie Brownâ€ one, it is a twig with one bauble which we thought was funny, if only Kerry hadnâ€™t thrown my pink feather one out! We also got a few lights for the liquor cabinetâ€¦.
We visited a few pet stores, long story but it wasnâ€™t for animals, Rich has a cunning plan! So I got to stroke lots of other peoples animals, the best was an English Bull dog, she was the cutest thing I have ever seen, not to mention the most muscular! Apparently she isnâ€™t normally too fussy with strangers, she adored Rich, she stood on his feet, hugged his leg and looked at him adoringly, it was the cutest thing!
So I had a great day out and we got some useful boaty things too!
The dingy dock at Yacht Haven was insane at night, I have never seen anything like it, dingys were 3 deep
To top Richies day off, we called into our post box on the way home and he had a little present too, this is his Christmas present from me
It kept him quiet all night, I have no idea what time he came to bed, but I was long asleep!
