Preparing for our departure south!

WOW WOW WOW and WOW - So many of our family and friends pitched in to help us collect clothing, footwear, lingerie for the ladies (Thanks Mom 👍😀!), medical supplies, school supplies, personal hygiene items and household necessities. Our goal was to collect one hockey bag full and you can see from the pictures that we have been able to fill 3 LARGE BINS at 50LBS each! Thank you so much for your contributions and support and I am most certain thatch people of Barbuda will be very thankful of your generosity. Considering they have lost everything, every little bit they receive will no doubt, make their lives a little bit easier.

Our next step is to pack up all our replacement parts, spares, and upgrades that we are taking down as they are often difficult to impossible to get in the islands.

Maryse has done a great job in "stocking us up" on some of the essentials of life aboard the boat for the winter .... need to pack this as well! Notice the cans of Quebec Maple Syrup - always a favourite no matter where we travel. Often heard is "It comes drilling holes in trees?????"

Thanks again for your contributions and donations to help in making difference for the folks of Barbuda recover from a record breaking category 5 hurricane.
