Getting better each day Patricia, thank you. Fridge is fixed (at least for now), dinghy engine is working again so off to the market tomorrow morning.
Cheers, Val

Maybe things on the boat should break down more often so you can do more pastel paintings!!! (Just kidding! Hope all gets fixed soon!)
Cheers,
Sharon

No sabotage allowed, Val! :2funny: Reminds me of a brother and sister who lived on a large catamaran near us in Sydney. Stanley was complaining about how often he had to cart water out to the boat, and was looking for a leak in the water tank. Then he discovered that the local ducks had trained his tender-hearted sister, Penny, to pump water into the sink (and so out the sink outlet) so that they could sip fresh water!

No need to bother about sabotage Linley, I'm sure you are aware that the systems are in constant need of review and attention.  :crazy2:   We are now caught in the throws of getting old PJ ready to put to see. Our time is up middle of Dec., so will do the jaunt up to Belize for a few weeks. Then sadly we will have to pop back here to pick up new batteries and bits that we're waiting to arrive. They must be brought in via container ship, and can take as long as 2-3 months.  :faint:   Then we shall be able to pop back out to the cays of Belize until next hurricane season.  :boat: AND.... being out in the cays means lots and lots of time to  :painting:      :yippee:
Cheers, Val

I hope you are O.K. Val.  I realise that you must be out at sea but we miss you and can't wait for your return to land and communication.

Hope you enjoy the relative peace of the cays, Val. Looking forward to seeing lots of paintings  :painting:and photos when you return to civilization (which I realize is also relative!) :2funny: :gl2:

Thank you Patricia. We and PJ are fine aside from finishing cleaning up the hulls. Still needs a bit more of a scrub job.  :crazy2:   I have been out of touch for a bit due to more.... you guessed it, dodgy internet. Also our time was up in Guatemala, so it was time to check out and bring PJ up to the lovely turquoise waters of Belize. We arrived yesterday and spent the morning getting 'legalized' here in Placencia, Belize. Had to have detail in our paperwork fixed. Next on the list was getting the internet sorted, and voila! Here we are!  :yippee:
Cheers, Val

You got one Val ( a rave review, that is). :clap: I actually like it better than the real Van G. :flowers:
Sounds like Belize is beautiful.

Linley, you are officially my favourite critic!  :-*    Even if you are slightly biased/impaired! But I'm sure that is only because you never had the chance to meet Vincent.  ::)     :2funny:

Belize is a wonderful place. The people here are fantastic, the country is beautiful, and the sea incredible. Colours are an artists paradise. I will have to get my photos sorted and set up folders for the different places we've been. At this stage it is a daunting undertaking, but one I know I really must do.

That being said.... I now have my pastels and w/c, and new pencils and papers and.... time to go play! TTFN  :yippee:
Cheers, Val
