We have made it to Grenada, which feels like a real accomplishment. Ironically, this looks like it isn't the end of the line for us for hurricane season as we think we will take Blue Kai to Trinidad for the time when we are in Seattle. But Grenada is wonderful and vibrant and beautiful, so we are excited about living here in September and October when we get back from Seattle.
In other news, we are proud to report that both of our kids are now real, live swimmers. As in, they are swimming in deep water off the back of the boat with no flotation device. Rye, in fact, is now jumping off the side of the boat, which is about 6 feet above water level. I am honestly a bit amazed. Rye also had his first swim under water with goggles. He did it in the Tobago Cays of the Grenadines and saw a sea turtle. And I had to wait 45 years to snorkel with sea turtles!
