[Cruise News] Phare Bleu Marina, Grenada

A good friend and neighbour, who lives between the UK and US, made a very valid point to me last week, that we are not on a vacation but are living a two-centre life so should expect to have colds, toothache, housework and other chores to do, just as we do at home.  She's totally correct and so, having finally kicked off a head cold, I launched with gusto into defrosting the fridge/freezer yesterday, remarkably all achieved in about 30mins given the air temperature!  And that was my job done for the day!

As a "reward" we hired a car today to spend the day exploring Grenada in more depth.  One rum distillery, herb & spice garden, waterfall and two crater lakes later, we returned to Pandora tired but happy.

We've moved around to a small marina for a couple of nights which is in the most lovely setting - quite the nicest marina I've come across ..... but that's not saying a lot!  It was a tight entrance and the berth we'd been allocated looked very narrow indeed.  But Paul did us proud, reversing from the bay all the way into the marina and straight into the berth first time!  The dock master complimented him on his prowess this early in the season and he's been receiving plaudits all day.  I even received a compliment for the calm and unflustered way I handled the mooring lines.  What stars!!
