June 2017 | MONTH IN REVIEW


Here's a quick summary of what we were up to this month.

  • We flew to Miami, Florida for a 6 day break cum visa run on June 10th. It was a mad rush -- lots of driving around, searching for boat stuff, sorting out banking issues (read '6 Day Break in Florida' post).
  • We bit the bullet and got some port visors in Florida which we installed last week. Very happy I don't have to run around, opening and closing the portlights every time it rains.
  • We hired a car when we got back to Trinidad, believe it or not, it's cheaper than taking a taxi back to Chaguaramas at night. It's a minimum two day hire at $125 TTD/day -- shitty car, but does the job. We took the opportunity to explore the island the next day (for boat stuff {as usual} and a little sightseeing).
  • We drove all the way down to Pitch Lake, which is located Southeast of Trinidad, apparently the largest natural deposit of asphalt in the world! To be honest, the drive was long and the place looks better in photos. 
  • We checked out Bhagwan Singhs, a huge hardware store kind of like Home Depot/Bunnings, located near the Piarco airport and bought some stainless steel bolts and washers.
  • We also watched 'Wonder Woman' at Trincity for $30 TTD/ticket (~$4.40 USD/ticket).  
  • We survived the tropical storm Bret on June 19th. It was announced all over the radio, schools and banks were declared closed; thankfully it passed through Chaguaramas overnight with gusts of winds no more than 40 kts.
  • With the rainy season upon us, it makes it extra hard for us to work on the deck; but we managed to re-seal the chainplates and side windows in the saloon. Just the front ones and all other deck fittings to go!
  • Oh, and we now have a 6 months visa in Trinidad.
