LIFE ON NANCY LU IN A COVID 19 WORLD— Martinique; March 13, 2020 thru May 26, 2020

Let me start off by saying that being under lockdown (as it’s called here in the Caribbean) on a boat has taught me that I have a great capacity for staying home.  I’ve known for a long time that “homebody” would be a pretty fair word to describe me, maybe even a good word to … Continue reading LIFE ON NANCY LU IN A COVID 19 WORLD— Martinique; March 13, 2020 thru May 26, 2020

AND A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL—January 31, 2019 – March 19, 2019

We arrived in Grenada on January 31 and began anticipating having guests aboard, getting shopping and laundry done, hair appointments scheduled and out of the way, and various other things done to get Nancy Lu ready to host guests.  We love to have people come experience the Caribbean from our sailboat-perspective, not to mention loving … Continue reading AND A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL—January 31, 2019 – March 19, 2019
