Frank Climbs: A LIB Storyboard

DSC00510

One beautiful day LIB sailed to Vieques. Frank and Mary Grace saw many tall trees.

The trees had coconuts.

Frank wanted a coconut, so he decided to climb a tree and get one.

Back on LIB, he cut off the top of the nut.

He hammered in a special spike.

And the coconut delivered nutrient rich water.

Frank was happy!

Disclaimer: Frank wasn’t actually able to climb the coconut tree.

Mary Grace found that beautiful coconut while walking Captain and gave it to Frank as a present.

The End.

I hope this made you smile. Have a good day.

Dog Days of Sailing

It appears the dog days of summer have arrived at home in Dallas as the first 100 degree day has hit. In recognition of those “dog days,” today’s post is all about our dog, Captain, and some of her adventures while on Let It Be.

Hikes are fun.

Sailing is fine, but arriving in port is better.

Catching some zzzzz’s

Yep, it’s a pretty rough life Captain leads when on LIB.

St Martin

St. Martin

Fair or not, St. Martin will not be remembered as my favorite place, at least from this trip. While the island is beautiful, I was sick the whole time we were on St. Martin, thus my impressions are negatively colored.

This trip we really only experienced the French side of St. Martin.  Still even when sick, this is a beautiful place and we did manage to see some rather lovely spots.  I am certainly interested in stopping here again later this year as I am certain St. Martin will be even more fun when I am feeling better.

For now, here are some photos to show you some of the beauty of the areas we visited this time.

A narrow and beautiful entry to Anse Marcel marina

There is so much more to share, but my internet is very limited and I had a hard time loading this much. With luck, we will have better internet and I can post more often.

Hope you enjoy the views!

Ahoy 2015

The first day of 2015 was filled with hope for the new year. It also included a very relaxed evening meal on the ” front porch” of Let It Be.
We hope your start of the new year was equally beautiful.
