Feb. 1 – we might get to escape

It’s not all suntanning with little umbrella drinks on Chesapeake stuck (literally) in Martinique (part of France NOT a territory). Just yesterday after a day of cleaning up from  repairs we’re still not underway. Again. Sigh.

21 days and 3 boat bucks later we’re ready to leave Le Marin Marina.  It’s a Med tie meaning we’re backed into the dock with 2 lines and 2 lines on the bow out to 2 mooring balls.   Jim will navigate between the 2 buoys (1 barely above waterline) and release the 2 stern lines while I gather the bow lines. If the repaired engine runs smooth under pressure we’ll joyously leave little France behind tomorrow.
