Big news from yesterday. Ash has her USA visa. Her interview was quick and despite months of anxiety, was in the end only a formality. Once she retrieves her passport from the USA Embassy in Nassau, she will fly to Miami and rendezvous with me here in North Palm Beach.
From my end, I’m still unsure of exactly where I will keep Intrepid until next November (when I will sail to Mexico via the Panama Canal). The Indian Town Marina is a No-Go, since a lock system before the marina is now being rebuilt and consequently is closed. Just my luck. I would like to stay where I am, but the busy season of January and February is 100% booked, I’m still hopeful since Intrepid is small and I will stay during their 35% booked season. We will see, but it is still a bit anxious. Otherwise, I’m slowly prepping Intrepid for long-term storage. Yesterday I took down the main sail and associated lines. A chore when you are by your self!
Otherwise, I’ve scheduled my FAA Class 2 medical so I can go back to Flight Instruction and have been distributing my resume. Plus still looking at purchasing a car, whenever I get the money 🙂 I kinda returned to the US totally broke. Oh well, that’s life.
